Of note Bishop played 13 games and started 10 of his first 2 seasons, Irving played in and started 7 in his debut season, but despite playing 220 more minutes in those time frames, Bishop only faced about 40 more shots. Irving was absolutely peppered in his 7 games.
Draw conclusions however you see fit, but I don't see a big argument that Bishop is miles ahead of Irving, especially when the Flames backup is unlikely to see more than 10 games.
