Sure - if a way better offer was on the table they would have taken it, but the Sens did the right thing by Bishop here.
Ummm....there was no better offer than Conacher coming. This trade was about Tampa filling an organizational need, and then Ottawa jumping all over a trade no one in their right mind would refuse.
