25+ goal scorers don't grow on trees folks, nevermind players signed for 2.5M dollars.

Ben Bishop has impressed for a whopping 13 game sample size at the age of 26. He does not hold the value of a proven goal scorer signed to one of the leagues best value contracts.

Calling Glencross a 25 goal scorer because he scored 25 goals once is a bit of a stretch. It would be like shooting down a Rob Brown trade because he's a 100 point player.

I like Glencross a lot, wish the Oilers never gave him up. But if you're the Flames, dumping contracts to make room for young players is your m.o. here and if you're able to add a 26-year-old goalie with #1 ability, you've got to make that deal.
