TAMPA, FLA. - To this day, Bryan Murray defends the trade he made with the Tampa Bay Lightning on April 3, 2013.

In fact, he still maintains he's "happy" with it.

Dealing goalie Ben Bishop to the Lightning for winger Cory Conacher and a fourth round draft pick was all about having limited options. He could either, A) shake hands with Steve Yzerman, B) take a late second round (which originally belonged to Anaheim) along with a "bad contract" from the Edmonton Oilers, or C) get nothing at all for Bishop when he left as a free agent in the summer.
