The reason I think Talbot is an exception is that almost all the players without NHL experience by the time they are his age are going to be career minor leaguers with no hope of making the NHL, while Talbot clearly is thought to still have the potential to make it based on the Rangers giving him a one-way contract the year Biron's ends. I think that's enough to separate him from others because it shows professionals are viewing him as a probable future NHLer.
