Talbot Switches Sides and Signs in Philly

By: Tim Brennan

The Flyers continue to change up their roster as they have signed agitator Maxime Talbot to a reported 5 year deal worth $9 million. Talbot has pestered the Flyers for years as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, where he amassed 52 goals, 108 points and 324 PIMs in 5 seasons in the Igloo. The feisty center/winger fills the spot left vacant by rival and fellow pest Dan Carcillo. One has to wonder what GM Paul Holmgren is thinking with all these moves.

Penguins/Stars Trade – Feb 21st

James Neal

By: Jonathan Kovacs

There has only been one trade since the last update by Eric Bancker, but this one is worth mentioning. The Pittsburgh Penguins traded away Alex Goligoski, their talented young defenseman who has been a solid player so far in his young career to the Dallas Stars. The Stars sent promising winger James Neal and former 1st round pick in the ’05 draft, Matt Niskanen. I’d say the Penguins got the better deal here, Neal is having a good year tallying 39 points in 59 games up to this point. Niskanen isn’t bad either, he is young and still has some upside. I’m not counting out Goligoski either, but Neal has the potential to be a superstar, consider this one a win for the Ray Shero and the Pens.
