Why would the Kings and Canucks be so careful not to trade within their division, and yet the Senators traded Bishop inside their division? The reality is that we didn't offer anything for Bishop. Management likes to pretend they did though.
You have no idea what you're talking about. The Oilers DID make an offer.

"The Oilers apparently offered winger Ryan Jones.... and somewhere between a second and a fourth-round pick. Tampa was pitching little winger Cory Conacher and a fourth-rounder. The Senators liked Conacher better, so he wound up in Tampa."
