One of the issues that the Edmonton Oilers have dealt with this season is that Cam Talbot hasn't been the hero they need him to be.
While Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl naturally get a lot of credit for the Oilers' success in 2016-17, Talbot was a vital part of that squad as he posted a 42-22-8 record, 2.39 GAA, and .919 save percentage in a staggering 73 starts. By contrast, he's left a lot to be desired this season with his 3.11 GAA and .902 save percentage in 36 games. The Oilers are a long shot to make the playoffs at this point, but if they are to have any hope of getting there then Talbot needs to have a great second half. Unfortunately, we're skeptical that that will happen. Jan 18 - 9:35 AM
