Turco back in the NHL ?

Scott Burnside reports former NHL goalie Marty Turco has an “out-clause” in his current contract with Salzburg in the Austrian elite league should he sign with an NHL team before the February 27th trade deadline. Burnside claims a number of NHL teams are keeping an eye on Turco’s progress.

He would need to clear the waiver first.

Detroit? Chicago? Tampa? Toronto? Niittymaki got no taker at all, what about Turco?

Any taker? Would he be claimed on the waiver the same way Nabokov was last year?

It sound stupid but....if a team like Toronto is interested, would it be a good strategy to ask a favor to another team to sign Turco with the promise Toronto will claim him on waiver.

This way Toronto got more chance to get Turco than if Toronto sign him and Turco go thought all the waiver.

Pretty sure Chicago learned its lesson.

I don't think so...maybe in the off-season but not before the deadline

I could see teams interested in him, especially if he plays well. Seems like he has been keeping busy and playing here and there over the course of the last 4-5 months. I could see Detroit trying to get him if they aren't comfortable with Conklin or MacDonald. But someone like Tampa would probably swoop in and claim him off waivers. Much like the Nabokov ordeal of last season.

It's worth a try I guess, and Turco seems more of a gamer than Nabokov. I doubt he'd pout if he got claimed by ANYONE in the NHL at this point, as long as he gets to play.
