    I'd prefer the younger Murray, but the two should be fairly even next year (both great). Wish I knew what happened this year

    I'm with Dobber. Even with Edmonton being the younger team up front, it'll still be a couple years before that really makes a difference for the goalies. Odds are having the younger Murray holds more value down the line if you end up trading him in a couple years.

    I'll go against the grain for now and say Talbot, simply because even though Murray is younger he is becoming among the bigger bandaid boys in the NHL. With the goalie position being so crucial to fantasy teams, It would drive me crazy to have a goalie missing games every other week...especially with the fact that the games he has played, he hasn't been that good to begin with.

    I wonder how much of Murray issues this year is just play/injury, vs. whatever "family" stuff is now ongoing?

    Well, Bobrovsky was a band-aid boy for the longest time, then Bob went through a more astringent warmup/stretch routine, and then became one of the best goaltenders in the world. Murray, for all the shortcomings this season, is still one of the best young goaltenders in the world. You don't fluke your way into winning two Stanley Cups while being the backbone of the team.

    I would definitely take Murray over Talbot, and I predict that the Pens will make Murray's durability issue a priority to fix this off-season.

    It's possible. Anderson did a great job of leaving those off-ice distractions last year, but they are different people.

    Murray hands down.

    Pens finally got through to Crosby to stop being a brat and take care of his head so I have full confidence they’ll work with Murray this year to address what’s going on with him being hurt all the time. I like Talbot but Chiarelli is making a mess in Edmonton so Murray seems like the better option.

    If I am Murray, I am looking over my shoulder at Tristan Jarry, who may very well be just as good, if not better than Matt Murray.

    Talbot for me.
