Cam Talbot's three-year deal with Minnesota worked out perfectly for the netminder.
Talbot was worried that the glut of goaltending on the market would force him to take the first offer but after talking to Minnesota GM Bill Guerin, he relaxed and accepted the Wild's offer. “You know that there might be guys left without a seat at this point,” Talbot said. “So, it was very nerve-racking, very stressful, not just on me [but] my wife, too. You just never know, but we knew that there was going to be some shuffling, some spots opening up, so we were just hoping for an opportunity from somebody...When Bill called, it seemed like the perfect fit. It was kind of a no-brainer … so once we got the call from him, it was just a where do we sign kind of thing. We’re very excited and looking forward to the opportunity.” Talbot is slated to be the Wild's number one goaltender but with the NHL schedule likely to be condensed, Alex Stalock should see plenty of action as there will be plenty of back-to-back games. He was 12-10-1 with a 2.63 GAA and a .924 save percentage with Calgary last season. Oct 10 9:49 am (EST)
