Is Ben Bishop's time in St. Louis done?

Ben Bishop's name has been thrown around a lot  in trade talks. Young goalies, even if unproven have been a hot commodity this year. Players like Josh Harding and Johnathan Bernier have become players of high price. With the extension of Brian Elliot, and the long contract of Jaroslav Halak, Ben Bishop doesn't have much of an opportunity to be a NHL goalie in St. Louis. What happens between now and trade deadline date remains to be seen. If he doesn't get traded, and becomes a free agent, this is where it gets interesting. If Bishop plays 17 or less games in the NHL this season, he becomes a UFA, but if he plays 17 or more, he becomes a RFA. This is sure to get interesting.
