Selling High on Cam Talbot

Kids legit, all be it old, still a good GM has got to sell high on this kid if at all possible. It sucks but you can't hand Henke 8 mill per and then not make him THE MAN. Plus we need help in other areas.

And the kid deserves a bona fide shot as a starter

thoughts?

What has he done to deserve a shot as a start? Play like 8 good games? Should we rattle off the list of goaltenders who had an entire season of success and came back down to earth? Happy with his play, but how about we see how he handles a full season as a backup before we start making any drastic claims? At the least, what team out there is going to make any sort of quality offer for Talbot? I don't see anyone handing us more than a 5th for him.

I'm not with it. He's a great backup.

If you can get a consistent 40 point 3rd liner or maybe even a 2nd round pick, sure. But I don't see anybody giving that up for a guy who has played 10 games. Let him back Hank up for the next however many years.

Until Lundqvist stops playing like pure ass... he shouldn't go anywhere. When Hank becomes Hank again.. then explore that option.

Even if Hank was at the top of his game - No.

For once I feel confident with the backup playing.

Just win baby just win

Let the naysayers keep living in the past.

The guy that should've been sold high is now watching on the bench.

The only way this would constitute selling high is if you thought the kid was not legit.

If only Henrik would give some of his money to Cam. Then we'd have a nice and fair tandem.

I have to admit, I'm intrigued. He's not the next starter; He's not going to wait around 8 years. He's playing well as a backup, but maybe too well.

Backup goaltenders aren't terribly tough to come by. If Slats can sell him as a starter though, there could be some real value. Imagine a package of Talbot-MDZ?

I don't know. Haven't put too much thought into it.

I want to keep Cam, cuz I'm greedy, but if he gets around 20-25 starts and keeps up his stats Calder is not out of the question.

Kidding? He's played like 10 NHL games. Any trade value he has is not nearly worth his current value to us.

Maybe so... but he has been pretty consistent over many years. They overpaid for a tender in 2014. But now that they have....

Its a chess game... have to move the pieces to make a better team around Henke. There is no turning back.

Sather should be making calls

No, it's not "maybe so."

I'm just curious how much worse does Hank have to play? Cause so far this season outside of 4 or 5 games he hasn't played near the level he has in the past.
