Ben Bishop presents Ottawa Senators with some big decisions
It’s all comes down to asset management. Lehner, for all his minor league heroics, wouldn’t generate a significant return on the trade market. But a goalie with some skins on the wall is a different matter. Remember the ransom that Tampa Bay paid for oversized Nashville backup Anders Lindback last summer? Two second rounders and a third. If Ottawa GM Bryan Murray can haul in that kind of booty from a team in transition between the pipes (Columbus, New Jersey), he’d be crazy not to do it.
Murray is in no hurry to make that decision, but with Anderson’s return on the horizon, it’s only a matter of time before Bishop makes another move.
This time, it won’t be a lateral one.
