I think he'll get a 2.5M 2-3 year deal depending on how this season plays out.
Unless he bolsters us enough to get into the playoffs, and we win a round or two, he wont be getting anything close to 2.5M a year.
He is a RFA who is currently making $650K. Im not sure anything changed in the new CBA but the old one, you could qualify him for 10% more of his current contract. Which means if Bishop wants to play hockey he will agree to a contract offer of $715K.
Now obviously if Yzerman thinks hes the guy or part of the solution with Lindback, I wouldnt be surprised at all to see him get a 2-3 year deal in the range of 1M-1.5M. But that would be as high as you would expect him to get unless what I said above happens in which case he may get a bit more.
