BruinsNeedaRussian 10-27-2011 11:22 AM

Should have done so from the start instead of insisting on a contract worth triple what he should get.

It's easier said than done. Who knows what kind of offers (if any) Maloney has received?

No, he never asked for a trade, he just didn't want to talk contract

Clearly an example of a guy leaning heavily on his draft pedigree rather then NHL performance. Good for DM.

No, because he hadn't officially requested a trade before. Now he has.

Nah 'Yotes should trade him for scraps and give out the message that any prospect who doesn't want to be in Phoenix can weasel their way out easily, obviously...jeez :sarcasm:

Pretty sure he asked before, but this is the first time that his agent has made it public knowledge.

Tim Vezina Thomas 10-27-2011 11:26 AM

I mean, I wanna call him a little biatch for not playing, but who wants to play in Phoenix, Arizona? No offense to Coyotes fans. Who would wanna play football in British Columbia? Probably no one.

I highly doubt he isnt moved by December 1st, the Yotes could get some significant assets for him and I just dont see them getting those assets when they could use every bit of talent they can muster.

Does anyone have any insight on what he could ask for? 1st, NHL player and a prospect? Just prospects?

because every person should be forced to have someone own thier rights for 7 years and dictate everything in their life, because they happen to be exceptional at what they do.

Leaf Rocket 10-27-2011 11:29 AM

and so it begins?

SK13 10-27-2011 11:29 AM

The whole "ask for $4M" thing was an abstract trade request.

I don't get why players don't make the request and play. At worst you'll earn some money without damaging your character across the league. All he really needed was a one-way deal to prevent getting demoted, they can't afford to have an NHL contract in the AHL.

Chandrashekhar Limit 10-27-2011 11:29 AM

This should clear things up for the 'Yotes fans.

If you mean football football then the Lions are doing awesome, if you mean soccer football then yeah the Whitecaps suck

If you choose to play in a league where those are the negotiated terms of your employment then yes, you should be forced to follow those rules.

The Last Dynasty 10-27-2011 11:30 AM

this guy was considered a "suspect" prospect last year and one mediocre season and all of the sudden he's requesting trades for some reason

know your role Turris

Nice try fellas, don't be expecting your wishes to come true anytime soon, he'd have to clear waivers, and thats not going to happen

Turris knew the rules when he agreed to become a NHL player, now he has to deal with it. If he didn't like them, he shouldn't of gone into the NHL draft.

caley 10-27-2011 11:32 AM

I'm surprised how many people can feel so strongly about one side or the other without taking everything into account.

On one hand, I understand Don Maloney's position. Kyle Turris is a RFA and, by all rights, belongs to the Phoenix Coyotes and if Maloney doesn't want to deal him, he doesn't have to.

On the other, why would you keep someone who obviously doesn't want to play for your team? Many teams in the league have had to deal with it at one point or another (Edmonton with Pronger, Ottawa with Heatley and Berard, Vancouver with Bure, etc. etc.). It sucks, but it doesn't help your team any to keep said player around.

And with Turris, we don't know that he didn't quietly ask for a trade earlier, nor was that $4 million demand ever really substantiated (i.e. I don't recall LeBrun, McKenzie or either Phoenix or Turris talking about it). It may come down to him just not liking Dave Tippett. That happens.

I'd be surprised if Turris wasn't moved before Christmas. His value is just going to deteriorate the longer he sits out. To refuse to trade him because of some principal, to me, is just biting off your nose to spite your face.

EDIT: After reading a bit more, it's apparent that Turris DID quietly ask for a trade from Day 1, so this latest announcement is to put pressure on Maloney who is refusing to trade him.

Turris' agent said DM received several significant offers. Who really knows if that's true. He could be trying to create a market or put pressure on DM to deal him.
