    draw?


     No. White would win in just a few moves since he has what is call the "power of opposition". Here is a good video that explains how it works:

    That's the first thing I thought of, but after taking a closer look, trading the knight and the newly acquired queen for a bishop did not seem like a very good option.

    cant see why the bishop sac is necessary , but ok


    well moving anything but the bishop would end in stalemate after Nxc7 Kxc7

    The bishop wasn't needed and was merely allowing stalemate opportunities for black, hence it's prudent to sac it.
