26 year old back up goaltenders who have no track record of success aren't worth a lot. A 2nd or 3rd round pick is probably all he's worth. Anything more is going to have strings attached in the shape of a big contract someone wants to dump or a player with little value where the team wants to rid the organization of a contract.
That has to be one of the stupid comments in this thread.

From Wikipedia: Bishop was the American Hockey League's top goaltender with a 24-14-0 record, a 2.26 goals against average, a 0.928 save percentage, and a league-leading six shutouts through 38 games.

He has posted really good numbers with Binghampton the last 2 years, saved our season last year when Anderson was hurt, and the only reason he hasn't played much is because of the lock jam in St. Louis and now Ottawa.

I don't know how many Binghampton or Ottawa games you've watched (probably not a lot), but Bishop is a very good goalie with amazing size. Instead of checking stats, maybe watch a game or two.
