Dumont doesn't really have to fight per se, just take a momentum-shifting beating during a playoff game. See: Talbot vs Carcillo.

If he didn't cost much, I'd have him on the Hans in a second. He's a perfect fit with the team philosophy, city and the coaching staff.

Time for Max to come home.

Would you sooner have last year's team with a good PK or this one with a poor PK

Its montreal that he was leaning towards....he wanted to play here, he was interviewed and he talked about it, but when your a bottom sixer and a team comes up to u with a 5 year deal...u cant really refuse that

He's not massive...he's 5'11 but he plays like hes bigger...prust is only an inch taller...its about body strength and talbot has it.....if u need just one reason to pick him up..look no further than or penalty kill. but on top of that, he raises his game in the playoffs, he scored 20 goals last year, only makes $1.7 million....he's 29 so still some great years left in him and he's an experienced cup winner...can drop the gloves and putting on our sweater...i gotta believe that would only motivate him even more. I can't find a single thing wrong with this kinda deal accept the asking price...gonna be a pick for sure and probly immediate help on the blueline.

kaberle? lol

Would you do it for a 2nd round pick?

Would the Flyers do it for a 2nd round pick?

This guy is a proved playoff performer in a bottom six role, exactly the kind of player we need for a cup run...a moen-talbot-prust line could be a game changer at any moment in the playoffs.

I could definetely see a Talbot-Dumont-Armstrong/White line. We could expect them to score once in a while, something we can't expect from our current 4th line.

Although I wish Dumont can further develop his game to eventually be a 3rd line C.

Talbot would be a great acquisition, however in this shortened season, it seems like Bourque and Diaz (and even Prust now) have been gone for so long that having them back will in itself solve the grittiness issues (Diaz solves or helps other issues). I agree with the author all the way up until the point where they think that we are on the brink of an organizational downturn and need to strike now. Does this person follow the Habs? Our future is...well...ahead of us. The LAST thing I would want to do is trade the guys like Thrower, Bozon, Dietz just to get Talbot. I don't mind Weber and a pick though. This is where MB needs to shine. Get Talbot without disturbing our ecosystem. In a few years, the big bad anybodys won't know what "hit" them with the aforementioned college guys + Tinordi/Nathan/Ellis coming into their own.

I'm very sure MB is not going to trade the future just cuz we're having a surprise season.

That's a 6 million bucks 4th line you got right there, and all four for the next 3 years as well. I'd only take Talbot if they take Moen. We'd have Prust-Talbot-Army as a 4th line, still a bit much though.

But the more I think of it, the more I believe Bergevin's plan is to ride with the rookies this year and let them get playoff experience so I'd be fine with iDumont as a 4th line center and Tinner as a 6th D.

Talbot is a great guy in the room. He's "rah-rah-rah" sometimes, but with the way he plays, you have to buy into it and follow the lead. Him on the Habs would be interesting. But I expect the Flyers will make whoever wants him pay thru the nose, there will be lots of takers because make no mistake, because of the shortened season, a lot of more teams believe in their chance to win it all this year, including, probably, the Habs.

my own observation is that we now seem to play collapsing while back then, we used to play a large box with pressure on the point men.

Talbot is a heart and soul guy, why not. But Moen would have to go the other way.

Given that Therrien is here, there's a good chance Talbot could join the club.
