Senators preparing to cut a former Oilers goalie.

When the Ottawa Senators general manager Pierre Dorion decided to reach out to Cam Talbot during last year's off-season, he felt that Talbot could make a difference.

Last season, Talbot spent some time with the Minnesota Wild and his numbers certainly showed that he was the difference-maker.

During this time there, he played a total of 81 games, with a record of 51-20-9 and an average of 2.65 and an SV% of .915.

Fast forward to this season, and the numbers look vastly different. Dorin made the announcement today that he will not be resigning Talbot during the offseason.

To be fair, the Senators are not the airtight defence that the Minnesota Wild are. They're one of the leakiest defensive teams and it did not bode well for Talbots' numbers.

Also to note, Talbot did not play as well as he did last year and he also suffered a couple of injuries along the way.

Time will tell if any NHL team would be willing to sign Talbot, and take A chance on him to see if he can rebuild his numbers.

The 35-year-old goaltender held a $3.66 million cap hit, suffice it to say he will not be paid that kind of money next year.
