Cam Talbot will get the nod for Edmonton on Thursday night.
Anders Nilsson was great in the preseason and it helped him earn the backup job over Ben Scrivens, but Talbot is projected to carry the load for the Oilers this year. He was a solid No. 2 netminder for the Rangers for the past two seasons and he's getting a chance to prove he can handle a larger role with Edmonton. Oct 7 - 3:11 PM

Cam Talbot was shaky in net for the Oilers making just 24 saves as they fell 5-2 to the Canucks on Thursday night.

It wasn't as thought Edmonton didn't support Talbot, giving him a pair of one-goal leads within the first 21 minutes of play. But Talbot surrendered his leads just 23 and 66 seconds later, respectively. The latter of which was on the power play, which was also the first of two power play goals Talbot was beaten for. It may be pre-season for goalies too, but it's never good to forfeit a nickle.

Cam Talbot said he's looking forward to battling for the number one job in Edmonton's crease.

The Oilers still have Ben Scrivens and they brought in former Islanders' goaltender Anders Nilsson on a one-way contract, but the job should be Talbot's to lose. "Obviously Ben and Anders are good goalies as well so there will be a battle in the crease. I’m looking forward to the competition," said Talbot. The 28-year-old was acquired from the Rangers at the NHL Draft, and he is scheduled to become an unrestricted free-agent at season's end.

The Edmonton Oilers acquired Cam Talbot and pick 209 from the New York Rangers for picks 57, 79 and 184.

Talbot is a UFA, so the Rangers obviously wanted to get something for him rather than spending money on an older goalie with a relatively small resume. Meanwhile, the Oilers hope to get some goaltending answers at a fairly reasonable price.

The New York Post is reporting that the Calgary Flames are still interested in Cam Talbot and will make the Rangers an offer on Saturday.

The Flames are not the only team interested in the Rangers backup goalie as The Post is also reporting that the Panthers are likely to make an offer and as part of the deal, send Kevin Hayes the brother of the Rangers Jimmy, to the Rangers. The Rangers were hoping to garner a first round pick for Talbot but it looks that if that is to be, it will be a future one.

The New York Rangers are hoping to get a first round pick for Cam Talbot.

That might not seem like such a daunting task given that Buffalo surrendered the 21st overall pick to get goaltender Robin Lehner. Talbot is coming off of a far better season, but keep in mind that Lehner is just 23 years old and isn't eligible to become an unrestricted free agent for another four years. Meanwhile, Talbot will turn 28 in July and can become a free agent next summer. That will be a consideration when teams are evaluating his value.

The New York Rangers have given five teams permission to speak to goaltender Cam Talbot.

Buffalo, Calgary, Dallas, Edmonton, and San Jose each have been given permission to speak to Talbot not about salary, but merely roster construction, the city in which the team plays, and other miscellaneous non-vital bits of intel. The netminder has a season at $1.45M left on his contract, and will be 28-years-old by the time the 2015-16 season begins.

The New York Rangers appear to be looking to hit a home run with any potential trade of back-up goalie Cam Talbot.

With a season at $1.45 million left on Talbot's deal, and unable to negotiate an extension until January 1st, 2016, the Rangers want more than the pair of second-round draft picks they've already rejected. Through 57 games and 53 career starts since making his debut in 2013, Talbot has gone 35-15-5 with eight shutouts and 33 Quality Starts already to his name. He also sports a .931 save percentage to go along with his 2.00 GAA through his age-28 season. For what it's worth the teams that currently have multiple picks in this weekend's second round include: Arizona, Buffalo, Calgary (consecutive), Columbus, Edmonton, New Jersey, and Ottawa.

The Rangers may have a hard time getting the maximum return for Cam Talbot.

Talbot has just one year remaining on his current contract and any team that wants to acquire him will have to wait until January 1st, 2016 to negotiate an extension with him. Talbot should still net the Rangers a decent return, but his contract situation still isn't ideal.

The Oilers would be willing to trade defenseman Martin Marincin and "perhaps" the 33rd overall pick in the draft for Cam Talbot, according to Sportsnet’s Mark Spector.

The buzz continues to pick up around the Rangers’ backup netminder. Spector says that the Oilers have "been lining up for Talbot for months. … The Oilers will give up more than most teams, because they’re more desperate in goal." Through 57 career games, Talbot sports a 2.00 goals-against average and .931 save percentage. Marincin had five points in 41 games at the NHL level last season.

Cam Talbot is a "hot commodity" on the trade market, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

Edmonton, Calgary, San Jose, Dallas, Florida and Buffalo are believed to be in the mix to acquire the 27-year-old netminder. Dreger reports that Buffalo, Edmonton and San Jose are the most likely landing targets.

According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, there's a good chance the Rangers will trade backup goalie Cam Talbot this offseason.

Brooks added that several teams have contacted New York about Talbot's services. The 28-year-old had a strong season for the Rangers, but with Henrik Lundqvist signed long-term, they can use Talbot as a bargaining chip. The Sharks and Oilers are two teams that are looking to make an upgrade in goal this off-season. The Rangers are believed to be looking for draft picks in a potential trade for their backup goalie.

The Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks are reportedly interested in acquiring Rangers backup goalie Cam Talbot.

Both teams have question marks in goal, and ESPN analyst Pierre Lebrun believes that these two clubs will be competing for a lot of the goalies on the market. Talbot was very impressive throughout the season, and he is under contract for one more year at a very affordable $1.45 million cap hit. The Rangers are looking for future assets like prospects and draft picks for his services.

Cam Talbot could be used as trade bait for the Rangers.

He signed a one-year, $1.45 million deal with New York back in December, but might be used to land the team a first-round pick. The Rangers don't have a first rounder until 2017 because of the acquisitions of Martin St. Louis and Keith Yandle. Talbot was excellent in 2014-15 and could challenge for a starter role on a team looking for a goaltender.

Cam Talbot made 19 saves during Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Devils.

Talbot was on-point all night long, stymieing the Devils' attack and needing a bit of bad luck to be beaten for the second goal. The second tally, which made it 3-2 Rangers, needed a miscue from Derick Brassard and Talbot to go in as they accidentally sent the puck in the wrong direction. The win raises Talbot's record to 21-9-4 with just 77 goals against in 36 games this season.
