He might be, but he was hot garbage in Nashville hence the buyout. I hoped he would eventually get it together here.

I love the fact that he was essentially a no risk signing. If he has a bounce back in his career, fantastic. If he continues on the drain swirling trajectory, he was cheap and only one year. No problems that I can see.

Pretty much.

Personally, I’m hoping Turris produces something along the lines of 10-25-35.

He's got a two year deal, though. Unless you meant only one year left.

Not necessarily unreasonable, but certainly optimistic.

This is more in line with what I'm expecting. Specifically, the fewer number of 5-on-5 goals is what I'd point to being the main point of contention. The 15 Sean is accounting for seems like a stretch.

Whoops... you are correct sir. Still, a short year for one of them by the looks of it.

Loved Turris as a Senator, but his skating is his Achilles heel. Its the reason for his decline and why he never was a true 1C.

I’m curious as to the sort of competition Turris faced in his last two seasons with Nashville. Was he seeing mostly bottom 6 opposition, or tasked with a top 6 shutdown role?

Pretty soft minutes as Sean alluded to. From what I've seen, he was generally supposed to operate as a 3rd scoring line.

Ah. I guess I wouldn’t have needed to ask that if I’d read the blog. Which I would’ve done if all these (frank)ing advertisements wouldn’t keep high jacking the (frank)ing blogs.

Sounds like he'll fit in wonderfully with the hot garbage pile that is the oilers

For sure. At least they inked a legitimate 3C who is a steady 0.5ppg on the cheap. He's not the top 6 guy he once was, but 1.65M is a bargain for a 3C who should do well in that role.

I've heard they're bad. Seems like it's a problem cropping up in a lot of places.

Oh he's a great bargain. Still has great hands and a excellent wrist shot. He can pick any corner!! He was one of my fav Sens for years.

Two things people forget: 1) Peter Laviolete was his coach. Look at the underlying numbers of his team. He looks on the numbers side like a terrible coach of talented teams. 2)Nashville's replacement coach was actually worse.

Age will be a factor, but Turris is an intelligent player; my guess is this looks like a great pick up. He'll light it up in Edmonton, especially with his match ups as long as he has some talent to play with.

Neal is at best a 3rd liner with PP minutes.
Turris between Neal and Puljujarvi makes sense for minutes.
That leaves the top 6 to be constructed of a few stars and complementary players.

Nuge-Draisaitl-Yamamoto may be the best option.
Maybe Kahun-Draisaitl-Yamamoto balances it a bit better.
Nuge-McDavid-??
Where does Ennis, Kassian, Archibald and Chaisson fit?

Given Neal and Poolparty, I can't see Turris getting more than 30 points.
One player scores mostly on the PP, the other hasn't played NHL games in over a year.

I see 4 legit tops six forwards ( mcD, LD, RNH, Yamamoto)
And a good chunk of middle sixers than can play up high for stretches ( Kassian, Turris, Ennis, Kahun, Neal). It’s not a bad problem to have.
