Ben Bishop was acquired by the Dallas Stars Tuesday, May 9th, in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings. The Dallas Stars must sign Bishop to a deal before he becomes an unrestricted-free-agent on July 1st. (Source: Sports Day Dallas News)

Fantasy Impact: The Stars arranged the trade with the Los Angeles Kings for a fourth-round-pick (114th pick acquired from Montreal for Jordie Benn) in this years draft. Bishop, now 30-years-old, was a finalist for the Vezina Trophy in the 2015-16 season when he was between the pipes for the Tampa Bay Lightening. The Stars are in need of improvement at the goalie position, with Kari Lehtonen and Antti Niemi struggling to establish consistency in the 2016-17 season. While Bishop will improve that squad, it creates a major cap-space issue for Dallas. Bishop is looking for a large contract, most likely a five to six year deal in the ball-park of 5.5 million to 6 million. If the Stars decide to keep both Kari Lehtonen (5.9 million) and Antti Niemi (4.5 million), then they will face a 13 million dollar cap hit for goal-tending alone. Should the Stars decide to keep Lehtonen, the better of the two between Lehtonen and Niemi, then they will take a 1.5 million cap hit for two seasons. How the Stars go about finding a solution to this monetary problem will most certainly be interesting to say the least. Players rights trades usually end up in contracts and deals, so the expectation at this moment is for Bishop to sign in June and potentially as early as May. Since being drafted by Saint Louis in the 2005 draft, Bishop has only made two postseason appearances in the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons respectively with the Tampa Bay Lightening. With that being said, Bishop was impressive with a 21-13 record to go along with a 2.02 goals-against-average and a .930 save-percentage through 36 postseason contests. The 30-year-old Denver native has had a history with groin injuries in the past, most memorably playing through a torn groin, yes you read that right, a torn groin in the 2015 Stanley Cup Finals. The Dallas Stars have made the first move at improving their goalie situation, but the cap situation must be addressed before it starts effecting needs at other positions on the ice.

Ben Bishop is day-to-day

The MRI was negative and they say there is no structural damage to his knee so Bishop is considered day-to-day. No word on whether he will play in Game 2 though. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: This was better news than some might have feared as they saw him on a stretcher. Keep an eye out. If he plays, he is a viable option in DFS. Otherwise, Vasilevskiy will play and it is up to you whether you trust him or not. Hopefully Vasilevskiy would at least be offered at a discount by your chosen DFS site.

Fantasy Impact: Bishop's record this season is an underwhelming 7-7-2. This is not the season Tampa Bay fans and fantasy owners expected, so it will be a storyline to follow to see if they can snap out of their early season funk or if they are simply not a good team this year.

He has surrendered two goals or less in four straight starts, but his team has lost those four starts by scores of 2-0, 2-1, 3-1, and 2-1. It is hard to imagine the Tampa Bay Lightning offense being held down for much longer, and Bishop will be a strong play again once they find their form. He may still be a strong play right now for his save percentage and goals against average, even with the team's offensive woes leading to few wins.

Fantasy Impact: Early on this season, Bishop looked like he was well on his way to matching last season's win total (40). However, Tampa Bay has struggled as of late. Given the injury circumstances, Bishop was very good in last season's Stanley Cup Playoffs run. He needs to find that magic again and be better than he has been if Tampa Bay has any aspirations of repeating as Eastern Conference Champions.

Fantasy Impact: This was Tampa Bay's third game in four days, all on the road, and the second game of a back-to-back after playing in Boston on Monday. Bishop performed well, but it is not really a surprise that his teammates could not muster enough energy to give him the support. Given the scheduling circumstances, and the fact that Detroit had two off-days to prepare for this game, it was a gritty showing for the Bolts. Tampa Bay has Wednesday off, but they will get right back to it the next day as they take on the Dallas Stars on Thursday at home.

Fantasy Impact: Bishop has been very good in Tampa Bay's first two games, as he has only allowed three goals combined. He has played every minute of both games, and appears healthy after sustaining a groin injury in last year's playoffs. 40 wins for Bishop again this year does not seem too far-fetched.

However, Bishop did allow two goals (including a power play goal) on only three shots in the second period. Fortunately for the Lightning, Bishop rebounded and blocked all six shots of the shots he faced in the third period and all three of the shots he faced in the overtime period. The biggest saves of the night were the two penalty shots he stopped: one attempt by Flyers C Claude Giroux in regulation and one attempt by Flyers C Scott Laughton in overtime. Despite not having to make the same acrobatic saves Flyers G Steve Mason did, Bishop ended the night with a .920 save percentage and a W.

Fantasy Impact: Ben Bishop's health and performance is of the utmost importance to the Tampa Bay Lightning. He is our ECR's 6th ranked goalie heading into the season, and certainly has the team in front of him to post 40 wins again this year. Two things to watch with Bishop will be fatigue and injury: Tampa Bay went down a long road to reach Game Six of the Stanley Cup Finals. It will be interesting to see if the shortened off-season factors into his performance, and also if Bishop is fully recovered from the groin tear that he suffered versus Chicago in the Cup Finals.
