Exactly. Not sure how many times I'll have to bring this up, but the chances that we'd have developped a prospect as good as Bishop with that 2nd are quite low... And we saved 6 years of development ON TOP OF THAT (means a lot of time, headaches and money)

Bishop was 25 y/o when we got him... A mid 2nd round pick for a young talented and developped goalie is NOT A LOT. Bishop was 25 y/o when we got him...

If the Sens were severely lacking quality prospects, there'd be a place for debate but it isn't the case, we can afford to use picks to get ACTUAL players... The people who whined about Bishop and that 2nd rounder are just looking for problems where there is none... Bishop already paid dividends last year and well, there was a lockout this year but he still played well in the AHL too (no goalie only have perfect games). We still have him under control and we could even get more than a 2nd eventually.

VERY LOW RISK, HIGH POTENTIAL PAYOFF TRADE.
