Interesting timing considering I think he's been having his worst year in a while. His GAA is higher than usual, but not only that, he's let in goals at the absolute worst times and worst ways. The Devils-Rangers game at MSG has been a microcosm of this season.

He started slow but has played better, though he's been a little inconsistent overall. 

 

I don't think the Rangers would have been THAT bad off if he had left, but it's a tough call...it's nice to have a guy you know can do the job, and the Rangers have no idea if Cam Talbot could've been that guy.  Lots of teams who can't ever seem to find a starting goalie that can be counted on year after year.  But wow is that a LOT of coin.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Interesting timing... 8.5 mil makes him by far the highest paid goalie, but the rags needed to lock him up.

It's certainly no hometown discount, but their saving grace will be that the cap is expected to rise quite a bit over the next few years, so as long as he sustains his play it should be ok.

 

It's no hometown discount for the next two, but it's pretty friendly after that since the cap will go up and his cap hit will be ~10% of the ceiling, like it's been for the past few years.

I agree the cap hit probably won't be an issue as long as he doesn't fall off a cliff, but I just don't think he's $1.5 million better than quick or $2.5 million better than rask.

Smart signing for both sides. A little expensive, and I could see it get ugly if Talbot continues his strong play, but they locked up a proven number 1 for the rest of his career.

How could you ever justify the trading of a top scorer at the deadline when you're right in the middle of the race for the playoffs?


Thats simple. By knowing youre gonna lose him and choosing long term instead of short term. 29 teams doesnt win the cup every year, yet they come back the next year, they survive. How many team lose 3 30 goals scorers for absolutely nothing withing 2 season but yet the GM is not to blame at all?

thank god you're not my gm... I'm glad we kept parise for the cup run and I'm glad we didn't trade clarkson for a second round pick when we still had a chance at the playoffs.

Joe Thornton is a ufa this offseason. If the sharks can't give him an extension before the deadline should they trade him? How about statsny, Phaneuf, Callahan or steen? Each of those teams are looking at the playoffs but should they just cut bait now so that they don't walk for nothing?

That would put you in a perpetual state of trading assets for fear of losing them, and then turning around and trading the assets you received again. You have to go for the shot at the cup. We all know that anything can happen once you get into the playoffs.

Explain it to the nearest wall, you'd stand a much better chance of making anything resembling progress.

Yeah, everyone has said what they have to say on this point.  There's no need for anyone to get in the final word, so hopefully we can put this one to bed.
