Latest on Max Talbot
Some reports earlier in the month that the Penguins would open contract talks with Max Talbot “fairly soon” has not come to fruition.
While GM Ray Shero has reached out to the agents for Mike Rupp, Tyler Kennedy and Craig Adams, reps for Max Talbot have yet to hear from the Penguins.
One rep for Talbot told me today he is “assuming” he won’t hear from Ray until after the Penguins scouting meetings which will be from June 5-8. However, they are just speculating based off what Shero said publically to the media last week.
Talbot intends to give the Penguins every opportunity to resign him.
The biggest question marks inside the organization is figuring out Talbot’s role moving forward.
