    While Bishop is still a great goalie, no way will SEA touch him with all his injury concerns.

    People would have said the same thing last offseason about Price.

    Seattle should be taking Tarasenko, Bishop and Klefblom. Hope for the best. Klefblom to LTIR, and the other two should be ready to go for 2021
    See All
