I really would like to see us give Turnbull a shot and Roe as well. Dowd is the quicker more agile of the three but all of them are solid enough to where they can play the game at the next level. They all bring something different to the table. Roe plays with grit and is a good d forward. Turnbull has nice hands and is a good passer who plays a bigger mans game and dowd has the better hands and is faster than the other two.
I really can't see how Turnbull is in the Kings plans at this point, I seen him alot since I follow the Badgers as much as I can. He's a decent two way player, but he isn't a goal scorer or dynamic offensively. He doesn't have the size or strength to be an effective checking line guy at the NHL level. He's solid at everything but exceptional at nothing really. I just don't see how there is anything to build on or round out to make him worth signing to an NHL contract. Roe and Dowd are both more skilled than him so I just dont see how he fits...
