Curtis Joseph provided fans of the Edmonton Oilers with so many magnificent moments during the three seasons he spent here, but if you’re like me, there’s one burned into your brain.

Cam Talbot has 31 wins, which for Oilers goaltenders is the fifth most in a single season trailing Grant Fuhr, Tommy Salo, Andy Moog and Curtis Joseph.
Fuhr won 40 in 1987/88, Salo won 36 in 2000/01, Moog won 33 in 1982/1983 and Joseph won 32 in 1996/1997. Fuhr started 73 games when he won 40 games, due to Andy Moog holding out for a new contract and then getting traded to Boston.
In the four previous season Moog and Fuhr always split the regular season duties, which is why neither won more than 40 games in a season.

This is a four-part series analyzing where each NHL teams stands heading into the trade deadline based on the context of each division, and the short- and long-term implications of buying or selling with the expansion draft around the corner.
The Metropolitan Division is stacked. At the time this article was written, four of the top five teams in the NHL standings were all from the Metro. The Pittsburgh Penguins look even better than they did when they won it all last year, and the Washington Capitals are gearing up for one final run with this group of players. The Columbus Blue Jackets have come out of nowhere, and the New York Rangers have enjoyed a renaissance. Even the bad teams in the Metro, the Islanders, Devils, Flyers, and Hurricanes aren't pushovers. So, what do you do in order to make yourself work your way out of this division come playoff time?
