In any given week, some hot player can be more valuable to the team, but if you count the play from October until today, he's been the team's MVP.
Without Talbot, the Whale would already be out of playoff contention. Miss is doing ok as a backup and Stajcer got much better in the ECHL, but if we had to rely on that duo, we'd be last in the AHL right now.
