Uncertain time for Lightning’s Bishop
With Ben Bishop nearly getting traded to the Flames last summer, you’d think there might be some reflection by the Lightning goaltender heading into tonight’s game at the Saddledome.
You’d also be wrong.
“Zero thoughts,” Bishop said. “It’s over and done with.”
But Bishop, 30, felt it was close to a done deal June 24 at the NHL draft. Trade talks between Tampa Bay and Calgary got advanced enough to where Bishop was working out a contract extension with the Flames. That was important as Calgary was on the list of teams that needed Bishop’s approval for a deal.
