Cam Talbot race heating up: Calgary the front runners?

With Robin Lehner and David Legwand heading to Buffalo for the 21st overall pick in the draft, all eyes have turned to the Cam Talbot sweepstakes. Initially Edmonton was the front runner, but Katie Strang has noted that Calgary is the front runner now. Darren Dreger noted that a pair of second rounders plus might get it done.

Trading Talbot for a pair of 2015 second rounders plus will be a coup. That “plus” is interesting though.

11am: Kevein Weekes is noting Florida has significant interest.

12pm: Mark Spector says that if the Rangers can’t land a first rounder, the deal will wait until tomorrow.

1:30pm: Dreger is noting the Rangers have been offered a first round pick for Talbot.  I can’t believe his value is this high. Stunned.

3:30pm: Dougie Hamilton has been traded from Boston to Calgary for the 15, 45, and 52 picks in the 2015 draft. This takes Calgary out of the Talbot sweepstakes.

4:30pm: Per Frank Seravalli, the first round pick offered is from San Jose (#9). My own opinion: It has to be Talbot+.
