You say Turris stuck at 2nd line center because it was a team need??? What?
They could have gotten you to be the second line center for much cheaper. Why did they do that?
So Paajarvi lost his spot because Smith came back. It had nothing to do with 8pts in 41 games? BS!
Teams cannot play both offensive and defensive style. You can play a balanced system, but many teams play a defensive style which affects their offense and vice versa. Oiler fans above anyone else should understand this.
Now, explain how Paajarvi's rookie season was better than Turris time with the Sens?
Again, you Zibby comment proves you are commenting about a team and players you know very little about.
Way to contradict yourself...
You are the one that picked apart my comments. I chose to respond. And yes
not Smith took his roster spot. Renney was openly criticized for over playing the vets instead of giving minutes to the kids.
You clearly know nothing of the Oiler's system and it shows. And you say teams can't play both offensive and defensive systems?? Yet you then say they can. Detroit is easily the best example of offensive defense. Through puck possession, zone control, drawing penalties etc...
Or how about Vancouver? 5th in goals for and 4th in goals against...
And yes Zibanejad is a center. He can also play both RW/LW. The Sens were planning on using him as a LW this year to get him more time with the club. But like I said, he will eventually surpass Turris...what then? What about Daugavins and Latendresse? Like it or not, Turris will end up as a 3rd line center.
Paajarvi in his rookie season went from playing in the SEL to the worst team in the NHL. He still managed to land more points than Seguin, Johansson, Burmistov, Backlund...
Turris in his rookie year had 20 points in 63 games and was -15.
And you say his production on the Sens was attributed to him? Nope. I would say the Norris winner and All star team captain linemate had more to do with it.
At least with Gagner you know what you get. Turris hasn't proven a thing.
