Although I don't really get how acquiring him makes sense.
We already have Connolly, Grabo, Bozak, Lombardi, Dupuis, Steckel as our center depth with Colborne in the minors.
Unless Bozak or Lombardi go the other way along with a defensemen, I don't see how it makes sense for us although Bozak is probably valuable to us with his ability to kill penalties and win faceoffs.
Maybe Burke is just inquiring with Connolly injured to see what the price is at. If Connolly is out for an extended period, he may have to make a move.
Id be ecstatic if we get Turris, another player with untapped potential and he could become something very special giving him good consistent timing .
