And let's say Bishop proves he can be a starter and even outperforms Kari a lot of nights, then you have options. What are out options now? Play Kari 70+ games?
I think the only problem would be Bishop may not want to sign on to be a backup.
So the Stars get Bishop for next year and he is either a great success the team can flip or about as effective as Bachman/Nihlstorp?
Speculating on Bishop doesn't make sense for this team, and there should be plenty of moderately washed up backups in the Vokoun/Theodore mold available as UFAs if Nihlstop/Bachman doesn't cut it.
I get what you are saying about giving Kari a rest, but this team needs fixes elsewhere more than it needs a goalie who is projected to be a good starter at the same time Campbell is getting ready to take the reigns.
