Talbot -> Playoff Monster?

While iŽam looking closer in Talbots Profile as a hockey player i recognize, that he is on a 0,5 ppg pace for his career.

I really hate to play against him in the past year, but i never recognize, that he was that good for the pens in the Playoffs!

2010-11 Pittsburgh NHL 7 1 3 4 1 14 0 0 0 9 0.57
2009-10 Pittsburgh NHL 13 2 4 6 1 11 0 1 1 23 0.46
2008-09 Pittsburgh NHL 24 8 5 13 8 19 0 0 2 37 0.54
2007-08 Pittsburgh NHL 17 3 6 9 4 36 0 0 1 16 0.53
2006-07 Pittsburgh NHL 5 0 1 1 -2 7 0 0 0 5 0.20

He plays 66 Games for the Pens in the Playoffs and scores 14goals and 33 Points!!!


With this stats he is a really good playoff performer. What do you guys expect from him in the PLayoffs? Top6 play? Or bonus depth on 3rd line?

NHL 11 seems to like him centering the first line, so let's put him there

3rd line, Fan favorite, works his ass off.

Playoffs, he'll throw in some points.

It's pretty obvious that he's not really liked here because of his former team, let's just pretend this guy would've played his first seasons in...let's say Colorado.
Everybody would be super happy to have this kind of player on our team now, even if he is overpayed by ~ $0.3m.

The first few weeks are going to be awkward but I expect Talbot to become a good player for this team.

I remember some fans questioning the lappy signing too saying he was slightly over-paid.

Philly likes to pay these guys money, because they generally play well above their salary.

He has to do something magical on this team before I can get this out of my head when I see him.

I'll forget about Talbot's Pittsburgh past when I see him in orange in black for the first time. This guy, on the other hand, will take some getting used to

The patch is wrong and the numbers on the sleeves aren't thick enough. They never are on the fake Flyers jerseys.

The difference was that Lappy was already 35 iirc when he signed a 3 yr deal.

Talbot is only 27, so a 5 yr deal only takes him to 32. He seems like a vet but he's only a yr older than Coburn.

I think we're all going to like what he brings. He was a great clutch scorer in Jr, and he's still got the touch, although he's more of a role player now he has a decent skill level and can play with better players. Pitt doesn't win the Cup if he didn't play so well as 2RW with Malkin....

I doubt it, it seems like Homer loves him some Shelley.

People around here give Homer credit where it's due. The problem is, he does a LOT of little (and sometimes big) stupid **** that overshadows much of it.

I really like the Talbot signing. I don't mind the length either. We won't have trouble trading him if he doesn't work out.

After looking half the season... Max does it all.

He is one of my favourite players after the first week of the season!

I bet he is one of our best players in the next years! I give Homer a big plus for this signing!!

That being said, iŽam sure he will rise his game in the playoffs. And he is so great in the 24/7 HBO Specials!!

Great plus for our team all around!!

He is a great player on the 3rd/4th line. Can kill penalties and plays a tough game during the whistle. Also can take a beaten in a fight to try to get his teammates going, as you seen in the Carcillo fight.

Overall I hated him on the Pens but he has grown on me a bit. He does wait till the refs get in the way when players go after him, but when players go after his teammates he is the first there to back them up and I like that about him.

He is one of the better playoff performers at what he does.

When we signed him i was so pissed. I thought he was a redundant player on this team, a powe Jr. Thought we gave him too much money and being a former penguin I just hated him.


I WAS F"ING WRONG.

He is unbelievable. Scores huge goals and is a great teammate. I think Powe was better at the PK, but Talbot's ability to score shorties makes him a threat every time out on the ice. I can't say enough good things about him.
