[PHX/OTT] Kyle Turris for David Rundblad and a 2nd Round Pick | Part 3

Continue the topic in hurrrr!

So like...Rundblad is PPG since going to Phoenix. 2 points in 2 games (just got a primary assist against Detroit.)

The trade should work out well for both of us.

Clearly Rundblad is better than Karlsson. I mean, clearly Rundblad's PPG pace is better.

Marco Sturm looked good in Boston, does that mean Bruins fans didn't care that Thornton won the Art Ross?

Should just make it a designated Turris thread instead.

One thing I've noticed about Turris (that I love) is that he is always calling for the puck, he always wants it, it's awesome.

Of course not, Thornton was on his way to an Art Ross had he stayed in Boston too. 33 points in 23 games right before he got traded.

Um, it's a little different.

Oh wait, Rundblad got a primary assist tonight. Maybe we should care.

That's the type of thing Tippett would have told him not to do.

One assist means nothing, just saying the other player's performance is important in determining who won the trade.

well here the players are all coached to call for the puck!

once he gets some more muscle on him this off season, i might have to say, "look out!"

A ringer off the crossbar and a bullet that handcuffed arguably the best goalie in the league right now. He also looks stronger along the boards and a lot faster.

Trade is looking better and better.

I don't really care about who won the deal.

2nd line center isn't an easy spot to fill and it looks like we got a really good 2nd line center for the foreseeable future. We already have Karlsson. People were worried about having too many D, well we may have made a lateral deal to address a need. So far, mission accomplished.

My first post about "who cares" was mostly sarcastic anyways. But really.

I wasn't worried about having too many D. There are multiple 2C prospects in the system and no 1st pairing defenseman prospects. If Rundblad hits his potential and then becomes an excess, then you trade him because his value is at its highest. They sold him at his lowest value. So unless the Sens win the trade and/or Rundblad doesn't develop, I mad.

For real?

We had a top pairing at one point consisting of a 20 and 21 year old.

I meant other than Cowen and Karlsson. What I meant is, now there is no D depth (relative to centre), no safety net, no potential for an awesome D core without plunging into UFA. It's not like the team has a set 30 yo 1st pair d-man + Karlsson + Cowen.

Now there is an excess of excess at centre. If you know what I mean.

Your questions about Cowen and Karlsson and the rest are just as applicable to whether Rundblad becomes a top pairing defensemen.

Who are these 2C prospects you speak of? Zibanejad might play wing and Da Costa is a question to ever be as good.

I'd even say Cowen and Karlsson are more sure things. But having 3 1st young pairing defensemen would be great, better than having all this depth up front.

Spezza - Turris - Smith are there for the next while. Zibanejad instead of Turris would been fine (long term) with Da Costa as the safety net. Da Costa has looked fine in his first professional season, he should be an NHLer.

Now Zibanejad may have no choice to play the wing, regardless of where he is more effective. And there is loads of depth on the wing too!

I do think Rundblad seems like he may pan out. But I think that Turris fills holes better than Rundblad did.

98% happy with this trade (the 2nd pick still bugs me).
