  Max Pacioretty to the Edmonton Oilers? That's what Habs fans hope to see It makes little sense for Oilers to trade good players entering their primes for a good player leaving his prime Montreal is evidently abuzz, just as it’s been for some time, with the hope of trading winger Max Pacioretty to the Edmonton Oilers for either Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Oscar Klefbom or Darnell Nurse or the […]Montreal is evidently abuzz, just as it’s been for some time, with the hope of trading winger Max Pacioretty to the Edmonton Oilers for either Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Oscar Klefbom or Darnell Nurse or the 10th overall pick, or some combination of all of them.

Bet on McLellan coming back with his big guy because he’s the starter and it’s only one off-night. Talbot also has a history of bouncing back from games that aren’t up to his high standards. Just flush it and get ready to go,” he said. Edmonton Oilers ’ goalie Cam Talbot , right, sits on the bench

Edmonton OIlers GM Peter Chiarelli is now saying the team will likely do nothing major this off-season. Really? David Staples and Bruce McCurdy dig in, looking at moves Chiarelli actually does need to make, such as finding another winger or two, and the coaching staff needs to make, including getting the most out of Jesse Puljujarvi.

Is Cam Talbot going to bounce back? His save percentage dropped from .916 and .919 in his two previous seasons to a mediocre .908 last year. Talbot will be 31 next year, advanced middle age for an NHLer.

So there are a few down arrows here.

I’ve had some good games but others I want back and I have to eliminate those ones.” “I’m not going to single out the goaltender. It’s team-wide.” Edmonton Oilers goalie Cam Talbot makes a save against the Pittsburgh Penguins during NHL action on Nov.

But I’m optimistic about Talbot returning to form. He’s a good bet to get back to his stronger 2015-17 level of play with the Oilers. I say this partly based on common sense/gut feeling/fan optimism, but also with an eye on his overall strong career and the fact his game didn’t come close to cratering in 2017-18, even in a bad year. His save percentage didn’t utterly implode, nor did he let in that many more bad goals per game. This “bad goals” thing is something we actually measure at The Cult.

Rating goalie play is a challenge, so the only work I’ve tried to do is to attempt to discern how many bad goals they let in each year. These “bad goals” are shots outside of the inner scoring chance zone that go in, or Grade B chances that the goalie should save but lets go through him or around him. Essentially, if the opposing team scores on a non-Grade A shot, the goalie has let in a saveable shot.

JONES: Good things on display for Edmonton Oilers heading towards end. “We had a 3-0 lead with three and a half minutes to go,” sighed goalie Cam Talbot , who thought for sure the goals from Leon Draisaitl, Connor McDavid and Drake Caggiula would be enough.

Get the latest fantasy news, stats, and injury updates for Edmonton Oilers goalie Cam Talbot from CBS Sports. Depending on what the Oilers do this offseason, though, Talbot could be a prime candidate to bounce back in 2018-19.

This year we had Jonathan Willis and Bruce McCurdy also making these calls, studying every goal against and trying to figure out if the goalie should have had it or not. The numbers this year represent our consensus viewpoint.

In the end, we’ve determined something that isn’t too surprising, that Talbot wasn’t great but he was a whole lot better than his back-ups Al Montoya, who was mediocre at best, and Laurent Brossoit, who was about as weak as an Oilers goalie has been in the last decade.

In the end, we faulted Talbot on 48 goals against, which works out to 0.77 mistakes per 60 minutes of play, so about four bad goals for every five games he played. This was worse than last year when Talbot let in two bad goals for every three games.

Montoya let in a bad goal every game, on average, while Brossoit let in five bad goals every four games.

Even in his down year, when it comes to letting in bad goals Talbot was about as good as Devan Dubnyk in 2012-13, when Dubnyk was OK (though not good enough to win new GM Craig MacTavish’s vote of confidence), and not as good as Ben Scrivens in 2013-14, when he came in at Christmas and earned a new contract from MacTavish based on his reasonable level of play.

Talbot is the best goalie the Oilers have had since Dwayne Roloson. He’s not so old that he can’t find better form again. In the end, I’d say it’s about 75/25 he finds that better form again. Make sense to you?

Where will Milan Lucic end up next year? One destination stands out .
If I had to bet, Lucic will be back on the Edmonton Oilers next year We’ve had more than a week now of trade rumours about Milan Lucic and a few things have come clear: a) that Lucic asked for a trade for family reasons, but he’s not demanding one, nor is he in any […]We’ve had more than a week now of trade rumours about Milan Lucic and a few things have come clear: a) that Lucic asked for a trade for family reasons, but he’s not demanding one, nor is he in any position to demand one, and it’s evident he understands the Edmonton Oilers may not be able to accommodate him this summer, b) that the Oilers are confident Lucic can be moved without swallowing too much of a poison pill, largely based on a combination o
