Lightning made “by far the best deal”

Many fans were upset with the Lightning acquisition of Senators’ goalie Ben Bishop. They took to social media and local sports talk radio to voice their displeasure with the move.

The Hurricanes do not have many pleasant recent memories from games against the Tampa Bay Lightning and the 5-0 white-washing they took last night was just another chapter added to the book of what has been a painful three weeks for this team. It seems that each loss is more frustrating than the last and last night's game may have been the worst of the last 11 games, which is...

Travis Yost: On Cory Conacher

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators did what I've recommended for the past few weeks now, selling high on goaltender Ben Bishop. The return on their investment -- initially, a second-round pick tendered to St. Louis -- came in the exchange of rookie forward Cory Conacher, and a fourth-round pick.
