If Bishop can't do well as a starter for the rest of the season, what are the odds that TBL doesn't just fire Yzerman? The guys has now traded 2 x 2nds + 3rd + 4th + Conacher for Lindback and Bishop. I think Bishop will be good but if he plays 10 games with a 0.90x save% or less, I think the team starts considering its options with its GM. Despite having Stamkos as a young superstar, the Lightning have a very good aging core which is having seasons wasted by terrible goaltending.

Honestly, I'm glad that this Luongo stuff will disappear for a while and as a fan I will almost certainly get to be enjoying playoff hockey.
Alot of Ifs. If Schneider gets injured then what?
If Luongo plays and gets shelled then no one wants him either and now not only because of his awful deal.
If Luongo retires after year seven of his contract then two teams are screwed if he gets dealt.
Luongo has a 904 save %. Is that better than Bishop who is 26
and making peanuts?
