One argument a little over a month back when Lehner was just on fire, (and Bish was struggling abit) was that when the NHL resumes mid year, Andy will have not played a meaningful game in fooorever (Said like the kid from Sandlot). So people said with Andy's probably rust, Lehner might be our best option for winning. You have to think that (despite the Cowen disaster) with the short season and the alfie situation, that the team brass will want to push for the playoffs (for Alfie and for the playoff gates $).

Anyways, Bishop seems to have found his game. Let Lehner keep rolling in the A. If it's a 48 or 52 game season, its going to be jam packed. As good as a number 1 as Andy is, this is a year when you need your Rhodes-Tugnutt type duo. My hope would be that say its 48 games packed into 3.5 months, that Andy would get 28 while Bish would get his 20, keeping him from hitting UFA in the summer
