I'm so very happy about this, more Big Ben. Hopefully the money is good as well.

I'd guess it's in 3-4M range. He's a good goalie but I'd like to see him prove himself a little more before you commit long term to him especially with Vasilevskiy hot on his tails.

Good term. Actually surprised he signed this early. Figured he'd try to repeat last year and look for a longer deal wherever that may have been.

Gives TB plenty of time to make decisions on his future there.

I agree, that's why I think it's only a 2 year deal...it defiantly have Yzerman's wizards mind written all over it, committing to show the player that he have faith in them but not over committing until they get the chance to prove to themselves and to him that they can do it.

I don't get why he'd agree to such a short extension a full year before his current contract runs out...and when he'll be a UFA.

I imagine it will be 4.5M-4.7M range for 2 years

Either a huge AAV or the Yzerman effect.

I doubt Tampa wanted to sign him to a long term deal without a bigger body of work.

For Bishop, he knows how up and down goaltending is and if he gets a good salary for those two years it's money in the bank without risk that an off year kills his negotiation position.

Bishop is a really nice guy, if he waited it out he could get a longer term contract with more AAV somewhere.

Who knows why he signed earlier, maybe being traded from St. Louis to Ottawa before being traded to TB could be part of it, that he felt that getting his first starting job here (since that is most if not all goalies dreams) he felt that he wanted to give them the chance to really see what he could do and also maybe he knows that with Stamkos contract coming up it could give the team some breathing room to get something done with him next summer without having to worry about Bishops contract at that point, who knows, I am curies as to what the AAV is.

Mostly this. I mean, Bishop isn't a rich man, anything can happen(injuries/downswing), so it's nice secure money in the bank.

Bolts likely don't want to commit longer with Vasilevsky coming, in return they pay top dollars. Makes sense really.

If he stays this way, he's worth it. Enough time for Vaz to show if he can start in the NHL too.

.5M too high IMO but with it only being 2 years it doesn't matter. Not wild about the NMC but if Vasya takes his #1 spot I guess he'd want to go to a new team anyway.

Pretty high AAV, but worst case scenario he proves to be a one hit wonder, in which case they are just stuck with him for two seasons, and have an okay prospect in the AHL to challenge for the #1 spot.
