Maxime Talbot sent down

The Pens sent Maxime Talbot back down to Wilkes-Barre last night. Personally, I'd rather see Talbot here. He'll mix it up with anyone, has good speed, and kills penalties. Unfortunately for him, he's only 5'8" and the Pens penalty kill is either the worst in the league or close to it (sort of like the Pirates philosophy - we can finish last without you as well as with you).

I'm not sure if there's something missing about his game that is a glaring hole, or if he's just not that good. The effort certainly seems to be there. Let's hope he's back here soon.

Thanks to the anonymous commenter for reminding me about Talbot.
