Anyway, let's just tap the glove and move on since we seem to generally agree that Talbot is a good player for what he is and just disagree on what is really a meaningless distinction.
Yeah, Glass just seems like a guy that just kind of floats and will occasionally hit someone. Rinaldo is the motor guy that constantly keeps coming at you until he takes you off your game.

Agreed. And I didn't mean any disrespect. On the Pens, yes, Talbot is a fourth liner. They have a very deep team, probably the deepest in the league. On most teams though, Talbot fits in very nicely on the third line as a guy who provides secondary offense and solid two-way play. Not an all star, but a very useful player.
