Phoenix would not trade the same package they got for Turris for a worse player than Turris.
Dude...you have to stop saying this. I need one season of proof, statistically, to show me that Turris is the better offensive player. Please don't tell me that he didn't have the chance in Phoenix. This guys was Phoenix's golden child for at least a couple of years. He was given every opportunity to succeed, yet failed miserably to fulfill his potential. Phoenix actually had him playing with Doan for some time and failed miserably. As a 3rd overall pick, I'd personally expect him to be more than a 2nd line, shut down C. That in itself is an oxymoron. If your 2nd line C is going to be your shutdown player, who, other than your first line is going to score for your team. Let Turris crack the 40 pt mark just once, and then we can talk about who's better offensively. Gagner almost has 3x the pts. being drafted in the same year.

This guy simply hasn't lived up to the hype. I would take Gagner, who is a consistent 40-50pt player on one of the worst team in the league over Turris any time of the day. Also, Gagner, with his small stature is much more physical than Turris, and is a much more of a team player.
