You can put me in the 'hate him now' side and wish him nothing but misery. He was supposed to be the savior, the 3rd overall player that would be able to put up Patty Kane type of points...so he'll be booed feverishly when the Sens come to Phx.
He was drafted higher than his play would dictate IMO. He was rushed to the league after just one year of college play. It isn't his fault that he wasn't a low round draft pick as good second line center might be. It also wasn't his fault that he played his rookie year as a top line center weighing a buck fifty-five.

It was a mess more on the Coyotes side than on Turris. I only blame Turris by holding out to create a trade rather than by signing and requesting a trade quietly. Maloney hade a history of granting private requests for trades.
