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.
So let me get this straight. Bishop was the best goaltender, but didn't win goaltender of the year in the AHL? He's also played a whopping 23 games in the Senators' system and is the second coming of Jacques Plante? Doesn't fly and smells like a fan base grossly overrating a marginal player who got hot for a period of time. I remember when Chris Kontos was the next sure thing too. Or how about Steve Penney? I'm pretty sure general managers will remember the same type of performances.
