BOSTON — The Ottawa Senators are fielding offers for goaltender Ben Bishop from “four or five teams,” assistant general manager Tim Murray said late Wedneday morning.
Bishop, who is tied for seventh in the NHL with a .922 save percentage, is clearly the most valuable chip the Senators have at their disposal.
Murray also said the team is interested in adding a depth forward and or a depth defencemen. Again, though, the price must be right and the Senators will not part with their blue-chip prospects.
Murray suggested it was likely the team would do something, but he admitted that it’s a situation where one NHL trade sets the stage for others to follow.
One domino has fallen already. TSN is reporting that Calgary Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff has decided to play out the year where he is and retire at the end of the season.
