What About Cam Talbot In Detroit?

from Craig Custance Of The Athletic,

“This is going to be a whirlwind next couple days for goalies,” an NHL goalie coach said Thursday afternoon. And while we were chatting about the crazy goalie market and where they might end up, it seemed like a good idea to pin him down on some predicted destinations. Assuming he was up for it.

Cam Talbot
Predicted destination: “Let’s say Detroit. He’s just had that one bad year in Edmonton, other than that he’s really good. He was good last year in Calgary. He’s younger than Khudobin, he’s younger than Greiss, he’d be good for them.”

Notes: If you remove the 2018-19 season from Talbot’s resume, he has a .915 save percentage in 314 games. At 33 years old, he is a sneaky good option for teams. The Red Wings would do well here in getting value and a guy people seem to really like, which goes a long way during a rebuilding process that can be painful.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
