I would do a 2nd for Bishop personally. A 2nd this year gets you a better player at the draft than it did last year imo. This draft looks like it has solid players well into the 2nd, so I guess that is buy low sell high.

Maybe I would wait until camp is over, so if Lehner beats Bish out for backup duties, Bishop would become expendable. He served his purpose last year keeping the Sens above water when Andy cut his hand, but he deserves a back up spot in the NHL somewhere. Hes proven himself a great AHL goalie already.

Its a minor deal, but it helps both teams imo. It also shows respect to Ben because hes the odd man out here most likely, so we would be giving him a better opportunity. Being known as a respectable franchise has value in itself.
