He's a great goalie so you guys will like him. Five hole goals are a bit annoying sometimes, but nobody's perfect.

So all you people calling Bishop a 3rd string backup can suck on his 45 shot shutout tonight. Seems like the only people calling it an even trade were Senators fans. Soon Tampa fans will be agreeing with us.

Tampa is a disaster, they have no system.

Since when is allowing 45 shots a defensive system?

When Bishop was in Ottawa they said he only had good stats because of the system the Senators play, despite the fact their defense core is well below average and they were accused of being a run and gun team one year previous under the same coach.

Now Senators fans are saying Bishop is only good because of the defensive system Tampa plays.

Unwhoosh.

Well this thread got weird.

Anyway, taking into account the smallest of sample sizes, I'm officially happy with this trade.

Did everyone miss the sarcasm on the poster up a few posts?

Congrats for Bishop! Tampa fans will love him. Great teammate, all class, and a very good goalie.

edit: Most Sens fans don't believe Tampa got 'fleeced'. We were happy with the trade because we have Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner, who are both fantastic goalies. We had Bishop, who was a great goalie, but not not on the same level as Andy and Lehner is much younger. We traded something we didn't need for a good, young forward. We traded a surplus for an asset.

To be fair BigZKingK's post should have ended with a
And Sens fans are the biggest Bish supporters around.

So whoosh indeed.

I'm thrilled that we're getting Conacher, especially in light of the fact that Bishop had no real future here, but Tampa did NOT get screwed here. They got a goalie who, if they traded for earlier in the year, I think could have saved their season. He might still.

I was a bit surprised that Conacher was offered, but you look at the player, the system, the amount of offensive talent on that team, the current slump on the player, the deal doesnt look like a complete rip off.

Bishop had a .920+ save percentage, who uses his big frame quite well to positionally stop pucks.

I'm actually a bit worried facing him in years to come with that offense.

i think the main reason sens fans were happy with the trade is because we got a good young player now, rather than some 2nd round pick.

I mean, we traded martin havlat in 2006 for tom preissing (6th dman for a year), josh hennessy (C prospect who busted), and a 2nd (patrick wiercioch - who's just paying off this year, 7 years later).
