I'm almost 100% sure Bishop is a Restricted Free Agent, which mean we own his rights and he can't just go out this summer and sign anywhere. So, while there's always negotiation, there's no competition from outside clubs.

Now, he probably has arbitration rights which is the only leverage his has, but a Lindback contract for him is a nice bump up and one that an arbitrator would likely look at as a comparative.

Confirmed. Ben Bishop is RFA this summer as I thought.

And what I put out there was more of a perfect world type thing. I don't think Lindback will play another game for us as long any there is any slim chance of making the post season.
