    James Reimer of last year, expect Bishop to play ~10 games and it just gives the kings 2 options to get into the playoffs. an Insurance policy.

    Also Dean Lombardi is cold af

    Ok, but no offense to Reimer but Bishop, IMO, is elite. Definitively a guy to bring you to the cup finals. I know it hasn't been the best but still. A team with a proven starting goalie, I mean other teams would have paid more than a meh prospect a descent goalie and a 7th

    I didn't expect LA to acquire Bishop but its kind of funny now because Quick and Bishop are the two guys who always get put in the top 5 conversation but have no business being there.

    Tampa won this trade thu, Woulda lost him this offseason, and we got a good defensive prospect.

    wtf??!!! How is one of the best goalies in the league going for nothing more than an old backup and a few mediocre picks??? Is this really the best Yzerman could do? I find that hard to believe.

    1) Bishop was going to FA. Better get something than nothing.
    2) The prospect included is a right handed, 19-year old defender, which I'd assume is a good prospect, especially because he was a 2nd round pick.
    3) Budaj has had a career season and can help Vasilevskiy a lot, as a mentor and he can play, too.
    4) Bishop's numbers have been only okay-ish this year
    5) Goalie market is flooded with options(Fleury, Elliot, Johnson, need I continue?)

    Budaj is much much better than an "old backup".
