Kyle Turris

David Runblad and a 2nd round pick for Kyle Turris

Seems like a worthwhile gamble to take if you're Ottawa

I think we over paid. Lee and a 2nd rounder I would have been ok with but giving up Runblad AND a 2nd was way too much.

Dude has done nothing but underachieved since being in the NHL and proved to be a distraction to the franchise over the summer and for the first 6 weeks of this season.

Turris BETTER really impress with this 2nd chance.

Not only that but now we have a significant logjam at the C spot with Spezz, Turris, Regin, Zach, DaCosta, Foligno, Winchester and Z-Bad. There HAS to be a follow up trade to even out the roster.

How exactly was Turris a distraction?

He was a RFA and had every right not to sign a contract until he felt he was being fairly compensated

Now, we can argue all day long about what his value is, but that's not the point


He's only 22. If he's not a 30 goal scorer by the time he's 25 then maybe it's time to write him off

1/2 way through the Canes game and he has 3 points in 3 games (all assists) and 2 of his point were game winning assists.

It's early, but Turris is leading the Sens in scoring with 10 points in 12 games this season

According to Bobby Mac and Dreger it looks like we can expect to see a trade soon unfortunately. Whatever we get back, it will have to be decent. Dorion keeps saying we are in a win now mode. Can't be giving away Turris for futures if we expect to compete this year.

Return to Ottawa Senators
