I haven't seen Hackett play in two years because of the AHL scheduling but if he's developing alongside Lehner and Markstrom he could be a decent pick.

Frankly, I'm a little irritated that BMurray didn't flip you guys Bishop and a prospect/pick for Pomm.
There's no doubt Lehner is a better prospect, he's one of a few guys a definite cut above Hackett. With regards to Bishop, you got a really nice return. He's an intriguing guy but most of the people I've talked to agree Tampa Bay made a bad move there. Conacher is going to help provide the Sens with scoring depth. Really interested to see them play next season fully healthy.
