They were drafted in the same freaking year and only one of them has shown he can score in the NHL. As someone who watches Phoenix, I like Turris, and think he's a great player, but he hasn't proven **** compared to Gagner. If Gagner simply is a 40-50 point guy, Turris is a 20-30 point guy.

And to address OP's "Turris is a late bloomer" point, look no farther than Gagner's own father. I'm willing to bet Gagner takes a bigger next step than Turris (and he's already miles ahead)
