Bonehead for Bonehead

Is there a trade out there where Calgary can unload Turek for a comperable salary to 5 million for next year and the prorated portion of 4.25 from this year. Is Turgeon a UFA after this season?

I know Turek has no trade value but if it was like the title says a bonehead for bonehead then maybe a change of scenery would help.

Dallas has enough salary problems with the upcoming CBA and its underachieving stars.
Unless Calgary eats some salary, Dallas isn't going to pay $4.25 M for a backup...hell, Tugnutt already costs them over $3 M per and he's in the AHL!

Actually, that "other bonehead" is playing mighty well. The Stars wouldn't trade him as it would lower their chances at reaching the playoffs, or even further. Turgeon has been huge in the games he's played down the middle. Quite possibly our best forward in those games. His contract has absolutely nothing to do whether he's a "bonehead" or not, blame management. And despite all this, they way he has been treated, Turgeon took everything they threw at him like a man and is know proving them wrong. To top it off, he also has a NTC. Turek would be useless in Dallas, Turgeon is not.

Tugnutt makes 2.8 I believe. And the reason why he has been inconsistant is because of the ironman in front of him. Ever since Marty had that nagging injury somewhere around march of last year, Tugnutt has played in only 4 games. And if it's up to Marty, he'd likely won't start ever again in the green&gold. That's not because management has no faith in Tugger, but because of Turco's endurance and consistency. He wants to play every game and untill he really **** up, he will start 79 games this season.

I didn't mean bonehead as an attack against any players personality but rather they style of play compared to the over inflated salary they are entitled too. I knew Turgeon had a large contract and is not putting the numbers up to justify it so that is why I suggested him. There is most likely not a suitor for Turek at all but then again most Flames fans said the same thing about Niedermeyer last year as well.

If Kipper comes back and plays the way he did before he got hurt, I think Calgary might try to move Turek and possibly even eat some salary to get a real player.....

I don't know what Kiprosoff's contract is, but I'd guess him and Mclennan can't be much more then a couple of mill between them ... that's way less then what most starting goalies make by themselves!!!!

Imagine that ... "Hey Sather, it's Sutter. Yeah, I heard you're struggliing a little financiallly and need a goalie to boot. How's about we eat a million per of the remainder of Turek's contract to help out your small market Ranger outfit and you throw us back Poti?"

Poti?? The Flames are already bogged down with d-men. Plus Poti's tendency to pinch too much and not play defence doesn't fit into Sutter's system.
Flames need scoring punch up front. Lundmark maybe? Or Hlavac.

If you think about it that way, though, Poti looks like a heck of a forward for the Flames, eh?

If, and if we are dealing with the Rangers, I'd like to see a deal like Turek and a high pick or great prospect for Peter Nedved. Salary for Salary. One team needs offensive, the other needs a goaltender. The Rangers have an abundance of offensive firepower, and the Flames need a scorer to replace Conroy next year.

Now if only Sather would sign those papers.

What's wrong with Nedved? NY is possibly looking for a stop-gap replacement for Dunham, and Calgary could use Nedved as that big skilled forward for a playoff run.

Salaries are even, suits both teams' needs, and Nedved has stated he likes Calgary as that's where he defected over at (I think it was during the Mac's Midget Hockey Tourney?)

And because he's a UFA at the end of this season, Calgary is not obligated to any contract next year.

Nedved's departure gives players like Lundmark more playing time, the playing time that he desperately needs.

I think that's the biggest issue.. the Rangers already have a heck of a lot of salary going into next year. The deal might be possible if Turek was on his last year of his contract but he has another year or two left doesn't he?

This is true; but if there is no NHL hockey next year, Turek's salary might be covered by insurance.

In anycase, what's a measely $4.25 mill onto the Ranger's salary? Hardly a dent at all!
