This is 100% valid and accurate criticism IF you think Talbot in 20-25 games = fail, and his development would actually be hindered despite facing serious snipers in practice, AND if you don't think the return for Biron is at least = if not greater than value of keeping Biron.

Olsen >> Biron
Talbot can hold the fort. I do not think he is fail here, especially if he is eased into lower NHL competition.

Risky move, yes.
IMO reward worth risk.
