Might have to pick up a Boshop TB sweater.
Bishop is currently just a notch up above "meh" and Lindback just plain sucks.

You obviously haven't been watching many Lightning games. Bishop has played better(for the most part) than his stats show and Lindback was starting to get in his groove before his injury.

Without a legit number one goalie or hopefully Bishop becoming one (Lindback is nothing more then a backup), the Bolts won't be sniffing the postseason.

With the new realignment next year, they'll no longer enjoy the benefit of playing in sports worst division.

Good signing - I really hope Bishop does well in Tampa. Most of the time, he paid his dues, worked hard and deserves to be rewarded.

Good for both sides

Go to a news site, man.


As for Bishop, I really hope the Lightning can give him some defensive support next season.

As for the signing, it's too much for an unproven RFA IMO. Hopefully he makes it look like a steal.
