How many of you wouldn't trade Talbot for Quick or Rinne RIGHT NOW? Get over the 13 game sample.

And in regards to scoring goals, Lundqvist has been in net for all five times the Rangers have been shutout. Meaning, he entered five games with 0% chance to post a win. If the Rangers even scored 2 or 3 goals in some of those shutouts, he could have a .500 record.

Can't wait until Lundqvist wins a Silver or Gold Medal at the Olympics. He could have his second gold around his neck, and his haters would still push Talbot over him.
I think you're missing the point that people here are trying to make. The difference in salary between Lundqvist and Talbot, could add, what to the NYR roster? A lot? So, is the performance level that far off between them for the NYR to pass on adding that much talent to their skaters? Could he be a flash-in-the-pan? Sure. Could he get injured tomorrow? Yep. Could Lundqvist? Yes.

I'd like to see the NYR ride Talbot a bit right now and see where he can take them. If he can maintain, sure send Lundqvist packing. Why not?
