Don't look now, but Cam Talbot is quietly having a very good start to the season on a not-very-good team with a bad defensive blueliner group. He's older, but a lot of goalies develop later, and that's been his career trajectory from the start. At every level from the time he was a kid to juniors to college, he has been a late bloomer.

Considering that the AHL this year, due to the lockout, has an extraordinary number of NHLers and middling players (who in a normal year would be going back and forth, but this year are sitting in the AHL full time), his performance has been encouraging.

This kid might pluck his way into an NHL backup role.
