Talbot was 23 when the Rangers signed him. Had people given up on him before we had signed him? If anyone had "given up on" Talbot at any point, it was because they didn't pay attention to Hartford's games. I do pay attention to them.

I was always very high on Talbot. He was a terrific goalie in college and has been consistently good in the AHL. If you go back and look at old prospect polls, I was always voting for him earlier than most. Missiaen hasn't been particularly good at any level. He's a decent ECHL goalie that has sucked in the AHL. Have you watched many Hartford games this year? Because he's ****ing awful.

I would hope we don't qualify him at the end of the season, and that will be the end of him.
