See, I think the issue is actually less Weircioch's perceived value to Flyers fans than Bishop's.

I was impressed (albeit in limited viewings) with Weircioch, and I had 15th row seats for the 3/2/13 game where Bishop was really good in a 2-1 loss in in Philadelphia. But he has taken his time to break in, and I think most Flyers fans aren't quite convinced he's a regular NHL starter.

I can understand why you'd want a good player, I just fail to see the point for Ottawa. They'd be better off shipping off Bishop for rental scoring help.
Briere is the player you want.
