I've been very happy with Talbot's play as the backup this year and I'm thrilled that he's signed for next year, but when was the last time Talbot started a game? And how much experience does he have in the playoffs, at any level? Tokarski had been playing regularly in the AHL and had significant experience in big games as he worked his way toward the NHL.

Even if Talbot was completely healthy, I think it's more likely he'd be completely overwhelmed with starting in the finals. The Rangers have already lost a game, there's really not much room left, even with one of the best goaltenders in the world.
