    Seriously what is wrong with Talbot.
    He was my 3rd pick FML
    Is it just his down year or should I try to bail on him?

    team doesn't play d in front of him. Still, looked like he quit after awhile. He was either completely fooled on the penalty shot or was paralyzed and couldn't raise either arm.

    If there was a better option in a yearly league I would bail for sure. It's been a disaster.

    Even the top goalies are vulnerable to shitty play in front of them making them not worth owning

    Talbot was never a top goalie and this year's poor defensive play is exposing him. Top goalies also affected by poor defensive play this year: Price and Holtby.
    I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.

    This. He's been good at times inthe past, but last year was an absolute perfect storm of health, quality of play in front of him, and his own play.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Gardiner, M Reilly, Letang, Klingberg, Gostisbehere, Carlson
    F1: Voracek, Giroux, Couturier
    F2: Wheeler, Schiefele, Tavares
    F3: Benn, Seguin, MacKinnon
    F4: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller

    Bench:
    G: (none)
    D: Ekman-Larsson, Werenski, Orlov
    F: Pavelski, Bailey, Guentzel, Sprong, Killorn, Bjorkstrand, Tuch, Labanc, Donato, Necas

    If you're in a keeper with Talbot, this is the textbook definition of selling low if you trade him now. You'll get pennies on the dollar.

    The problem with the Oilers is their D, more than their goaltending. He's struggled too, no doubt. But I think he'll rebound next year, along with the rest of the team... provided they bring in a quality D-man or 2.

    oh MAN! OOooooooo WEEEEE! now that's a loaded statement!

    Add Sekera - Crap
    Add Larsson at the expense of Hall - Crap

    Who are they going to bring in to turn this around? And who will they have to give up to get such D men you speak of?

    Can't wait to see...

    That's a fair reaction, for sure. It will take some creativity.
    If I'm Chia, I'm on the phone to Toronto for starters. The Oil could really, really use somebody like Connor Carrick. He's an excellent puck mover, right handed, good skater, and under-rated defensively. He just needs to get his confidence back. The only reason he isn't playing regularly with the Leafs is that Babcock has it in his head that he needs Polak to play for PK reasons and to have "snarl back there."
    Chia should ask about Justin Holl too. Small sample, but he looked very good on his recent emergency call-up.
    Neither guy would cost too much. They aren't likely to ever be Babcock regulars.

    I also think, from what I've seen this year, Nurse is steadily improving and could take another step forward next season.
    Don't forget addition by subtraction effect too (i.e. find any warm body to replace Russell = improved D overall)

    I really think Nurse is going to be a beast in 3-5 years.

    Ive said that before somewhere on these forums.

    When he's 28-30 I think he will be a 25min defender for the Oilers and a top dman in the league.

    Friedman speculation today in 31 thoughts

    22. Don’t know if Oscar Klefbom needs some kind of surgery, but he hasn’t looked right all year. Wonder if we’re getting to the point he’s shut down to get ready for next season.

    If this is true, there's another thing to be excited/optimistic about for next season (well, not me, but Oilers fans anyway)
