I suppose I'd be ok with moving a 3rd for Bishop, especially with our lack of goaltending depth and the unpredictability of how Auld will play each game. I just don't understand why everyone is so gung-ho over him considering how he's about as NHL proven as Lehner. He seems to be the odd man out in St. Louis too with Halak/Elliott in the fold.
Galiardi would also be a nice, relatively cheap addition that looks like he could use a change-up.
Its sad to see how his game has declined this year though He was an okay
defenceman who brought a lot of toughness.
This year he is more like the tough guys who can play only limited minutes.
He can hardly crack our lineup(never should) and you expect him to play on a Cup Contender?? He is terrible... Last night he was directly responsible for 2 goals just standing there in the crease pretending to be a tough guy...
On TGOR last week Pierre McGuire pretty much laughed off Carkner to Van rumours... He isnt a piece for a cup contender

League sources say Senators closing in on deal for Ben Bishop from STL Blues. Could be done today. #Sens #SNTrade
I just hope it's a future considerations kind of deal. Unless management genuinely believe this guy can be a top back up for the next couple of years and want to sign him to a contract right away, they shouldn't be giving up much for him.
