Obviously i'm smart enough to know that MPS has potential. Maybe it would be wise for you to admit bishop has potential. You don't trade a 2nd for an inexperienced goalie if he only has backup potential.

So essentially it's a bottom 6 forward with top 6 potential for a backup goalie with starter potential. The forward has more raw talent, and is younger, therefore has more value.

I would offer:

Bishop
Daugavins
3rd round pick

for

MPS

Edmonton declines this though.

Edmonton keeps him for the potential...ottawa doesn't give up much more due to risk.
This is an absolute joke, right? Ottawa has to add to acquire MPV, MPS or whatever the heck his name is? He hasn't done anything the last two years in Edmonton to render such a return. Quit overrating this guy. I wouldn't trade Bishop straight up for MPV if I were Ottawa.
