I've been calling this since Wilson decide at the draft he was done being a GM and sat on his hands. Save up those picks next year to give away at signing a goalie who only has shade of brilliance, but made you look bad.
My gut feeling is that Turco tops Sharks' list. I've talked to Doug Wilson about this goalie search but he won't give me any hints. I'm just going on Turco's past history at Shark Tank and the fact I think he'd be a good fit. Turco has told me repteadly over last month that he wants to join a winner
Two NHL GMs were banking on Turco to San Jose when I spoke with them at the draft... We'll see...
If Turco is not a Shark by tomorrow afternoon I will be frankly stunned.
I'm actually not TOO negative on the whole thing. He's not my first choice, but as long as his contract isn't over 3m, I'm ok with it. I think having a puck handling goalie will be fantastic for this team, and he's a great mentor (probably better than Nabby) for our young goalies (especially Stalock).
Plus, he could always have an improved season and really surprise us. He's perfectly capable of it.
My friend says you get Turco in there to mentor Stalock and give the team another year with Stalock and BOOM! final round here we come!
Or so he says.
Well I hope he can teach him to shake his helmet off at opportune times and give a good whack at the skates erry once in a while
Thereís a lot of things wrong with this country, but one of the few things still right with it is that a man can steer clear of the organized ******** if he really wants to. Itís a goddamned luxury, and if I were you, Iíd take advantage of it while you can.
