How so? By signing Anderson to a long contract when there are better, more consistent goaltenders out there? By what, drafting Robin Lehner? Bishop was only an AHL goaltender when Ottawa traded for him, Ottawa only had Lehner whereas Toronto already has Owuya, Scrivens, Rynnas and Reimer under contract as young goaltenders. There wasn't a spot.
That being said Bishop is doing really well, I wish we had traded for him. That's the thing though Freebird, hindsight is 20/20. We wouldn't even be talking about this if the Marlies were having a rocky start to the season.
