Seriously he is that pk, defensive face off guy the team has lacked since Betts and before that Dowd.
Agree. Something's up. Talbot has value, but we've added two captains (Vinnie and Streit) so leadership should not be an issue. Talbot is really a 4th line player now, and a good one. That's what makes him tradeable.

I could see Talbot going to St. Louis for the rights to Halak, and the whole Emery talk is smoke and mirrors (or Emery's people trying to squeeze the Hawks).

Or if Homer is determined to trade Coburn, Talbot could be the perfect addition to the package for MacT, whose team needs character.

Anyway, just my hunch, we'll see what Homer has up his sleeves.
