Lightning's 2017 hot start finally fulfilling 2016's expectations

A review of the Ben Bishop trade for the Tampa Bay Lightning

The deal we all knew was coming eventually finally came. Ben Bishop will no longer be tending goal for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Tampa Bay Lightning: Keeping Vasilevskiy better than Bishop?
