Montreal used their history with Patrick Roy to try and repeat with Price. If Price crapped out, it would have ruined his development.
And remember what Murray said when Anderson cut himself, if something happened to Lehner they had no one else to turn to. We were in the playoff race. Anderson was gone for a month. A team just had to run Lehner and Ottawa would have been screwed. Auld was garbage. It was insurance and a good deal.
As others have mentioned, Bishop would command an equal return for what we gave up if not more. Problem being, no hockey.
Why would Bishop command more? Everyone doesn't love Sens players and prospects as much as this board does. In an albeit small bidding war in a situation of relative panic, the Sens gave up a 2nd rounder. Why would anyone do that now, as he's older, closer to UFA and while decent in the NHL, didn't really dramatically open eyes?
Also, where is that Murray quote from? Not a very nice thing to say about Alex Auld, a player you've invested a couple of million dollars in.
