TALBOT FOR GUSTAVSSON
The Ottawa Senators acquired goaltender Cam Talbot from the Minnesota Wild for goaltender Filip Gustavsson.
What does it give the Ottawa Senators
In Talbot, the Senators get a veteran puck stopper that essentially replaces the recently traded Matt Murray. He will likely share the net with Anton Forsberg.
What does it give the Minnesota Wild
Gustavsson gives Minnesota a younger goaltender with a much cheaper salary. He will pair with vet Marc-Andre Fleury if he makes the Wild out of camp.
Talbot's fortunes will probably remain the same with the move from Minnesota to Ottawa. He leaves a better team but could see more starts. Gustavsson could be the big winner in this trade, provided he establishes himself as a true NHL 'tender in '22-23.
