Turris is ready to tear it up! Sure he puts up Haydar like numbers, but turris was drafted 3rd overall for a reason, because he's an offensive weapon! Haydar didn't have the intangibles turris does and was a 9th round pick long shot to make NHL

The only player the predators have ever drafted higher than turris is legwand. Sure he didn't live up to the hype but is still a bomb player making tons more than turris wants! And turris still has HUGE upside!

For you guys to say you wouldn't want turris on our team is absolutely ludicrous!!
Kid has tons of potential and at age 22 I think he is about ready to turn it on big time with a change if scenery and two years experience under his belt!

Turris will put up better numbers than 3/4 of our forwards, easily this season

If we can get him at 3-4 years at 2.5 per. Do it Poile!!

And one more time, he is from same province as!

Also look at turris playoff stats from last year he had 3 points (2 goals) in 4 games. Imagine he got to play second round with a better team like us! He's the guy we need IMO
Hartnell averaged 22.8 goals per season over the past five seasons, Turris put up 11 as his career best last season. Yes, there is potential for Turris but as to date it is 100% unrealized. $2.5mil is what SK74 got for one after putting up 50 points ... what Turris is allegedly asking for is closer to what Hornqvist got for a 30g season ... after performing.

He was a #3 overall who has been outperformed at the NHL level by the #7 from a year later (Wilson). There is a lot of room for development in his game. He's rumored to be making contract demands that his play simply doesn't support. At $2.5mil long term, he isn't a smart option. The Preds would have a hard time burying that contract if his performance doesn't significantly improve.
