Anderson is going absolutely nowhere unless the return is a ridiculous, franchise-changing return. Why? Because his value to us as the calming ice general to our young team will not be seen by other GMs. The fact that Murray bristles at the mere mention of trading him (his "he could be our starter for the next 8-10 years) shows how much faith B-Murda has in him.

Bishop and Lehner have both been shaky at times. Anderson has been a rock for this team over his previous 100 starts and is a proven playoff goalie. The Sens are going to make a hard run next year for the Cup and Anderson is the goalie they will hedge their bets on.
