Both are having very good years this year, leading their team to a high draft pick next year while Bishop and Wiercioch are young players getting a lot of ice time on a team with a safe spot in the playoffs.
What makes Bishop and Wiercioch as a package laughable when compared to either?
Every time Ottawa fans attempts to seek a trade this year, this is the type of reaction we see (which I understand) but the Sens players must be better than they are perceived because the team is comfortably in the top third of the league without 5 top players. Eventually Ottawa will have to do something because there are more players than roster spots.
No but they both had 49 last year.
And now this year...one is at a PPG pace and the other is on a 60 point pace while adding a level of toughness that teams covet. If you really don't see their value, you should not be on here posting. Ask your own fans. They will tell you.
Bishop...26 years old...has 33 career games played....one game over .500
Weircioch...22 year old rookie...has 16 career games played.
Their sample size is so small and it's not jaw dropping. And they were 3rd and 2nd round picks so it's not like there are high expectations...like a Bernier for example.
Even if they both worked out to be very good players, their value would at best be only equal to Simmonds or Jake. Philly has no upside here...only risk. No deal.
