Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators stayed moderately quiet during the trade deadline. The Buffalo Sabres, not so much. Two organizations, two extremely different short and long-term plans. Bryan Murray's lone move was to send G Ben Bishop to Tampa Bay in exchange for Cory Conacher and a fourth-round draft-pick.

Lightning trade Cory Conacher for Ben Bishop

Ottawa Senators goaltender Ben Bishop was rumored to be on the block today thanks to the impending return of starter Craig Anderson. Bishop's outstanding play this season (8-5-0 with a .922 SV% and a 2.45 GAA) has really inflated his trade value well over what the Senators had to give up to the Blues last year to get him. This is going to hurt for Blues fans, as Bishop got...

It's April and the Islanders are playing very important hockey in their attempt to make it into the playoffs this season. The Tampa Bay Lightning haven't had a very good year of it, but things may have turned around now that Ben Bishop is in net for them.

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.
