Post #54.

If you don't agree about better, let's stick to just as good.

You don't know what you're talking about. They completely misused him, which is why he asked for a trade. He was healthy scratched a lot and played 4th line minutes. Dave Tippett is a great coach, but he missed the boat with Turris' development.

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.

Most teams use one of their top 2 lines as a shutdown matchup. Again, you have no clue.

Career doesn't matter. Turris was misused and is a late bloomer.

A 40-50 point player is much less valuable than a 40-50 point shutdown centre.

lol at "much more physical".
