but yeah it's pretty typical for a rookie to slow down after a hot start. I think the lack of structure in Tampa Bay is what hurt Conacher, he's the kind of player that needs to be given a consistent role, and I think OTT can do that for him.

Yzerman dropped a ball here. Conacher is having a great season. Ottawa have got some serious F depth.

Bishop moving around plenty.

Maybe Conacher will refind his offensive touch and retake the lead for calder consideration.

Uhh... so Stevie Y has traded a potential Calder Winner, two 2nds and a 3rd to MAYBE fix their goaltending.



Jeezoos.

Ok, as it sinks in, I am ok with the trade. We have so many small skilled forward prospects that one of them was going to move. I liked Cory a lot, but with Connolly, Johnson, Kucherov, Namestnikov, etc., we were going to have to part with one to get a good goalie. Sad, but excvited for Bishop. Just have to let the initial shock wear off so everyone can judge this with a level head.

goalies since Khabby in Tampa: John Grahame, Marc Denis, Johan Homlqvist, Mike Smith, Olaf Kolzig, Cédrick Desjardins, Dan Ellis, Rollie the Goalie, Lindback, Garon, Bishop.

i am probably missing at least a couple, right?

What a great steal by Sens. A 2nd (which was what they gave up for Bishop) turns into Conacher and a 4th? As a Leafs fan I'm pissed

Nice deal for the Sens but TB got a good young goalie as well.

Yeesh. Yzerman lost his edge quickly. 'Maybe this guy will pan out...'

Well, I guess this means that Tampa should go into full rebuild mode this offseason.

No sense acquiring young goalies and hoping for them to develop, while your big guns still want to compete for the Cup.

He needs to pick a direction for his franchise.

Wilcox

WE DONT NEED ANY MORE ****ING GOALIES
Lindback is out all season likely anyway.
Garon has been playing like a sieve.
Helenius is (unfortunately) looking less and less like the answer despite his stellar play in Europe last season.
Desjardins is an AHL starter/#3
Nagle won't be re-signed.
Janus is a wild card, played brilliantly for Slovan, but how would he cope in the NHL? Best case scenario he comes over and forces a trade.
Vasya is a few years away
Koshechkin is unlikely to come over
Wilcox is again a few years away

Sure there is depth and potential, but if Bishop becomes our starter, or him and Lindback emerge as capable tandem starters then brilliant.

you guys must be joking CC is a 23 year old rookie that has really cooled off as of late... he's going to max out as a 50 point forward at best. Bishop is a 1B goalie, not a bad tandem to have. Not a tandem I would want but yeah, your acting like he's a future 70 point player which he will NEVER be.
