With the NHL trade deadline approaching, teams are making their final efforts to improve their teams or rid themselves of players to set themselves up for the future. One of those teams with a valuable asset on their hands is the Ottawa Senators, who have received interest from multiple teams regarding 26-year-old goalie Ben Bishop.
Senators assistant general manager Tim Murray announced that the team is fielding offers for the young goalie, but it will take a big offer to get him out of Ottawa.
Tim Murray confirms that 5 or 6 teams have called about Ben Bishop today. “It’s going to have to be a significant offer” to move him.

Ottawa is still fighting to make the NHL playoffs, but Bishop is set to be a free agent.
He comes at an affordable cost and would be a nice, young shot stopper to add to anyone’s roster.
If Ottawa trades away Bishop, 21-year-old rookie Robin Lehner would take his place in the net.
