Ottawa wantedto move Bishop from the beginning. Lehner is a way better goalie, but due to Bishop having to clear waivers they couldn't get Lehner in net till Andy went down. Lehner has seen the better teams (Boston all 3 times now). They get the most return now, because it was sure fire he would file for arbitration and lock them up for trades.
As a fan I like Bishop, but am I glad to see his 5-hole the size of Luongo's ego. Andy and Lehner is where its at.
As for return, I am always weary of unproven NHL rookies. However the exceptions like Burrows and St. Louis give me hope. Ottawa's healthy Top 6 is looking young and potentially dangerous.
Thank you Stevie, hopefully he pans out.
