Edited to add: His birthday is not until August so I don't think he will count as a 35+ contract, but I still wouldn't sign him to 3 years at his age.
I would give him three years if he signed cheap. If he wants more than three million a year, no way. If he wants one or two million over three years, I'd do it. He is a solid goalie with great puck handling skills as well. Doesn't have a history of injuries and has always been an above average goalie. I would love to see Turco here as the starter next season or so, let one of the younger guys develop and bring them up and then maybe Turco becomes the backup. Does anyone know what kind of deal he is looking for money-wise?
