Hey guys; I've been surprisingly impressed with Turris' defensive play. Tippett taught him well. He's +8 in 10 games, and they're not afraid to play him at any time. He certainly needs to add some muscle, but he does compete. Our team is so much better with a 2nd line centre which has been our biggest weakness until acquiring Turris.

I'm not here to rag on you guys. I really like Magic Number 7 (well, I guess he isn't 7 anymore), his dangles make me drool, they are so sick. He was my co-favourite Sens prospect along with Zibanejad. I'm looking forward to seeing him dominate after he learns to play NHL D.

I don't see how the trade can't be win-win; both teams addressed a position of need both players have high talent levels. Or maybe Rundblad will be traded again for another high end prospect, haha. I hope he gets to play soon, want to watch.
