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.
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".
You are wrong: most teams do not use their 2nd line C in shutdown matchups. Some weaker teams that have difficulty with opposing team's great line would, but overall 2nd line C are not intended to play shutdown role. I'm afraid you're the clueless one!!!
If I had the time, i'd list all of the 2nd line C in the league, and make you tell me which one of them plays on the shutdown line. I also want you to tell me where Turris would rank amongst those 2nd line C's.
