This is the most infamous trade amongst Senators fans, and I’m sure it will be talked about for a long time. Since Bishop was traded he has become an elite starter, and now Conacher isn’t even in the league. I remember at the time I was excited because Conacher was having a great rookie season. He looked like another Tyler Johnson, but alas he came nowhere near that.

The only saving grace from this trade is Lindberg, who had a very good year in the OHL with Oshawa. If he turns into a solid top nine forward, then maybe this trade doesn’t look as bad. However, it’s tough seeing an elite goaltender go to a division rival, especially when they’re close to winning the Cup.
