The solution is to either trade the farm for Turris or be last in the league every year until we can finally get one of those impact centres, I mean those never move teams right?! never ever!

I'd expect Turris to go to a team without many impact prospects... i.e. Toronto.
Then go to the Oilers board and discuss it with them...

You've already discredited yourself with the posts in this thread to the point where you can't be taken seriously... Don't waste your time.

If it costs more than a 3rd round pick, then screw acquiring Turris.

I'm not sure I would want to give up much for Turris right now. I think he needs a little more AHL seasoning before playing in the NHL.

I'm sorry but if a 1st year draft eligible player scores 121 points in 53 games even if it's in the BCHL(which is pretty damn good league btw)that's bloody impressive.

He warranted is draft spot.

The biggest mistake was when Gretzky and company took him out of Wisconsin when they did. They should have left him another year at least.

My bad. I guess Toronto is so stacked that they can't give opportunities to impact prospects. Must be nice.

That. The value has been set, and I'm not keen on trading away any form of significant assets for a guy who is either boom or bust and so far has shown much more bust than boom. His seemingly cancerous attitude with the Coyotes isn't turning me on to him either. He has decided that he wants to put the organization in a terrible spot by kicking up such a fuss and making it look like the organization has no other choice but to move him (which subsequently lowers the value that Phoenix can get from Turris), or he believes that he should be paid based on potential rather than merit. Neither of those scenarios are very appealing.

Sure they can, on the 4th line as I mentioned.

OK later man. Didn't mean to ruffle any feathers.

I'll just add before I leave that Turris is going to have a break out year and Toronto fans will have wished they took a chance on the kid.

See ya in a couple months when I bump this thread.

Agreed.

Logan Couture has one year remaining on his current deal and already signed an extension for under 3m per....

I'd take Couture over Turris is a heartbeat.

IMO Turris just wants out of Phoenix and this is the path he chose to take.

Bottom line, he can't demand over $2M on a two-year deal. Anything more/longer is nuts.

We'll see. Pretty sure that the Toronto fans don't dictate what Leafs management does either bro.

Nothing said on HF will have any impact on whether or not Burke trades for Turris.

The consensus here is that pretty much anyone here would take him, but wouldn't overpay. He would have to earn his merit here, it wouldn't be given to him...

And no, this team isn't in a position to go 'all in' on a boom or bust player. He he could be had at a reasonable price, then I'd welcome it...

Two things wrong with that script.

1. In that boardroom there are like 40 people so you need to speak up.
2. Nonis calls the shots.

I think he might be worth the risk Moose, especially on the third line. If Grabo gets banged up and has to miss a bunch of games we have a guy that might be able to step in and show what he has. There is risk here but one where you can protect the bottom end.

People forget that Connolly isnt playing 82 games either & Lombardi could just as easily have a setback. I am not against taking a shot to try & get Turris.

I think that if Turris was to become a Leaf today he would be behind Darryl Boyce in the depth chart.

Sorry but I wouldn't trade Bozak for Turris like it is speculated on that article. Bozak is a good player when he is not thinking of passing the puck to Kessel.

Good PK'er, great on faceoffs (was like top 6 in faceoffs % for players who took above 1000 I think) and has #2C potential quite easily.

Turris on the other hand has proven nothing.
