Bishop Hasn't Been Given Starting Role

Lightning_Ben_Bishop_2013As far as the eyeball test goes, Ben Bishop is the clear-cut No. 1 goalie in Tampa at the moment.

Just dont go telling his head coach that.

Jon Cooper, perhaps out of fear of Bishop becoming complacent, says Bishop is still earning the starting gig in Tampa even though the 6-foot-7 tender has played in 11 of the last 14 games and is one of the NHLs top goalies from the early part of the season.

He has the job, but hes earning the job, Cooper told the Tampa Tribune. It hasnt been given to him. Ben Bishop has holes, but I think hes raised his competition level from last year to this year.
