Bishop's proved his worth in the AHL and would make an interesting backup/starting goaltender project. I'm not sold that Danis is going to be an NHL-calibre starting option and would rather roll with two potential starters in Dubnyk and Bishop.

2) Prevent Calgary from getting him.

Just to spite them... you know? Preventing them for having success can only be a boon to our own chances.

The Sens are hurting for NHL defensemen right now. If we could float them Potter/Peckham and a 4th/5th, I think we might have something.
I'd like to bring in Bishop so that our average goaltender size is 6 foot 6
