Hard to say at this point. Some big "ifs" play a role for sure.
If Talbot has a good year, looking at 5-7 mil for probably 4-6 years.
If Talbot has a so-so year, looking at 4-5 mil for a few years or walking papers if the next point.
If Koskinen steals the show, bye bye Talbot, but how much for Koskinen?
Overall, Oilers aren't looking great between the pipes going forward unless something unlikely happens (Talbot does great and also signs cheap or Koskinen turns out to be good and also sings cheap). Skinner is a ways away it looks like, if ever, and maybe Rodrigue or Hawkey will turn out. But that still doesn't leave much in cap space given their current roster. So does RNH get traded this year for less value than he's worth? Do they trade Lucic with Pulju to get rid of his contract?
