Roundtable reaction Analyzing the Cam Talbot for Anthony Stolarz goalie swap

The Edmonton Oilers traded goaltender Cam Talbot to the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night in exchange for fellow goalie Anthony Stolarz.

The 25-year-old Stolarz has appeared in 12 games for Philadelphia this season and has a 4-3-3 record, 3.33 goals-against average and.902 save percentage. He also set a record recording 60 saves in a playoff win against Anaheim on May 5, 2017 as well as a franchise record-winning 42 games that season and finished fourth in Vezina Trophy voting. Edmonton made it to the second round before bowing out, and with star Connor McDavid and a steady Talbot, the future looked promising.

Low-severity flu season — CDC
The authors said the overall VE estimate was "similar to the most recent A (H1N1) pdm09 predominant season (45%) in 2015-16". The flu is a contagious, viral illness that causes mild to severe symptoms that can sometimes lead to death.

TSN Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli notes that part of the reasoning behind the Oilers shipping out Talbot was to gain cap relief in order to activate defenceman Andrej Sekera, who is expected to return to the lineup soon after being out of action all season because of his off-season Achilles tear.

The Flyers goalie carousel continued Saturday morning. The Flyers' goalie carousel is part of a freaky season that's included injuries to Michal Neuvirth and Brian Elliott, the firings of GM Ron Hextall and head coach Dave Hakstol in the span of three weeks, but has seen the team making a run for a playoff spot in recent weeks with 23 points in its last 14 games. In total, he appeared in 19 games for the Flyers over the last two years, posting a 6-4-4 record with a 2.86 GAA and.911 save percentage in 19 appearances.
