Bishop wasn't exactly lighting the league on fire last year, and Anderson wasn't great for Colorado. There's a much better sample size to suggest Anderson is a strong starting netminder for us, but Bishop......I'd say the smart money right now would be to trade Bishop this season when his value is high.
Difference being, even if we all think we are playing a great defensive system, we are still giving up close to the most shots against in the league at around 32 per game.
