It's because Gagner has out produced him at every level. Once Turris shows that he can outscore Gagner the poll will look different.

People need to give him props for his offense last year considering how many games he played, but whenever Oilers fans call Gagner a 50 point player for putting up 47 points in 68 games or 49 in 78 they get told it doesn't count until he does it. The same thing could be applied to Turris.

It's also kinda funny that he was supposed to be an offensive player but then as soon as he joined Ottawa suddenly he's this terrific two way player being compared to Zajac and O'Rielly.

He's a bit of an enigma, and some people probably don't think too highly of him because of his little hold out.

Couldn't someone just easily turn it around and say Turris doesn't have any heart or is spoiled because of the hold out? Is his lack of development really phoenix' fault? They've developed OEL pretty well...
