I have a feeling Talbot (only 0.59m more) will be as well.

The cap is going up. Player values are going to begin to raise whether you jump on board or not.

I'm perfectly fine with Talbot's money. He's what we need on the 4th line, and if he's the deciding factor (since they were only keeping Shelley around for his locker room role remember) that gets Shelley the hell off this team, then I'm thrilled. You should be too. Talbot is a hell of a hockey player.

He was pretty bad in my opinion. I noticed plenty of mistakes in games as well.
Lappy was hero worshipped for his grit, but that doesn't mean defensive forwards are worth that much. His hit was passable (never cared for the length), but the hit and length for Talbot's contract is awful. This is a team that has an AHL team loaded with potential bottom six forwards. There is no reason to commit that much to a guy who kills penalties. I'll be glad if Shelley is gone but that doesn't mean I should celebrate one mistake getting rid of another.
