Nobody from the media should show up to this press conference. Sorry Brad & Ken we much better things to cover today., this is about 100 out 100 on priority list today.
Well at least you aren't calling him Bradley.

This seems like such an asinine nitpick.

I'm glad the goalie situation is taken care of early.

I like the idea of another vet added to the team but I would be ecstatic if any of our five young goalies (Rittich, Gillies, Zagidulin, Parsons, Schneider) were able to grab hold the reins by season's end.

I am pretty sure every team holds a press conference on July 1, even if its only to say the prices were too high and the market unappealing. This is a really weird thing to complain about.

Um, they do this every year for Free Agent signings. It won't just be about Talbot, expect lots of Q&A about what else he had going on today and the next few days.

Even if he signed nobody there would be a press conference today.

I think they are convinced that he can still be a starter in the NHL.

And that scares me.

That's perfectly fine but the press conference angle you took was kind of weird

Yeah ranting about a press conference in a hockey market is weird. I am sure the press appreciate it so they can get their sound bites for all the free agent frenzy stuff people will be wanting to read.

Come on man it's because he is a back up. Signing of a new starter on a team is news worthy in any market. He is what he is a back up to Rittich and hopefully nothing more.
Signing a back up is not news worthy unless it is some young phenomenon that the league is buzzing about.
Talbot is meh and his career has proven that.
