- Bishop may get more reps now and hopefully increase his trade value.

That's all I got. Knowing our luck we'll lose the lottery and drop a spot in the draft, all our trade assets will get injured the week of the deadline, and all the vendors Scotia Bank place will loose their liquor licences for selling to minors at 67 games.
I thought of another positive;

Once the initial surge of "did Cooke intend this intentionally" threads, there should be far less Karlsson threads on the main boards degrading into us vs them, and Karlsson is just a 4th fwd mentality, and we get to see whether Methot is the product of Karlsson here.
