High risk, high reward contract.

Little bit long for my taste, but very good cap hit. I like it.

Sens were stuck with Fisher's albatross contract with a much lower cap and managed to make it work, wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

This a player who played a solid 2nd center for then entire time he's played for the Sens.

Yes it was short, and yes this contract is paying a bit to the hope he progresses as he has. But Sens wanted him to have a good attitude, work hard and gain weight. He's done all the and more for the Sens so far, and did get rewarded for it.

This contract the way it stands is fine and could turn into a steal. 3.5 million isn't a tonne and its a small risk, but its a high reward.

From watching Turris this past year for the Sens, I'm excited to see what happens when he plays a full year, and also gets more training.
