I'm not talking about Talbot as a 3rd and 4th liner... I'm talking about him being a 3rd wheel with Malkin and Neal. He has enough skill and offensive sense to play with those two and can go out to do the dirty work too. Max, or Feds, was a nice 3rd wheel to play with Malkin but its almost stupid of the Pens to think that both would be the scorers for more than a playoff run.

IMO the Pens lost their ball sac when they let Max go. Maybe he was just a glorified role player but if the Pens needed a bump on any given night he was there to do it. The team misses that not.
I was sad to see Adams signed (retained) in favor of Talbot.
