Really, if we were willing to trade Ellis for couturier, then we should be willing to give up a ton more for turris!
Also. If we want to Kostitsyn to turris let's do it!
Kostitsyn is 2 years older.
Sk's two seasons in Montreal before us he had 23 points in 08-09, and had 18 points in 09-10
Turris last two seasons with coyotes he has 20 points in 08-09 and 25 last season
Both need(ed) change of scenery and both will/did excel once they got it
Sk was drafted 200th overall while turris was 3rd overall
People said sk had attitude problems as well before we got him
Trotz gets a lot out of what he has, a guy that was drafted 3rd overall a few years ago has LOADS of potential!!
....or we could always just do nothing and have worst powerplay in league again for playoffs
you dont trade major assets for a guy who only has potential AND also has an attitude problem.
we got SK for the rights to a guy who was going to be a UFA in a couple of weeks.
if PHX would give us Turris for that, fine, I'll take him
but for Ellis+, no way, at least not until he puts up 20+ in a season.
and Ellis for Coutourier wouldnt have cost us the big salary Turris wants, we would have time to see if he was the real deal before forking over millions
Edit: I see Mr Joshua beat me to it, but SK also signed for 550K. If Turris will do that, I'll listen
