    Default Thoughts on Scott Darling

    What do you guys think about Scott Darling? Will he be the next Cam Talbot? Does he have what it takes to be a starter, or has he just been sheltered by a great Chicago defense?

    The biggest thing with goalies is opportunity. If he gets a chance to be a starter anywhere but Colorado, then he may be okay. If he ends up in Dallas and Hitchcock can actually get the team to play defence, then they're a playoff team and Darling is a top 15 goalie. If he ends up in Calgary timesharing with Elliott, or the same in Carolina (Ward) or Philly (Neuvirth) then his value is close to the same as it is now.

    Bottom line is it's tough to say at this point, but if he moves on to a good situation, he can be as good as you think he can be.

    Have to think he's around the top of the tier for goalies in need of an opportunity - speculative add in my keeper for spot starts and seeing how the Summer develops for him
    Experience is the teacher of all things.
