      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today that the club has signed centre Kyle Turris to a five-year contract extension through the 2017-18 NHL season.

Turris, 23, recently completed his third full season in the National Hockey League and played 49 of his 55 regular season contests in 2011-12 as a member of the Senators. He was originally acquired by Ottawa from the Phoenix Coyotes on Dec. 17, 2011, in exchange for defenceman David Rundblad and a second-round draft pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

A native of Burnaby, B.C., Turris concluded the 2011-12 campaign having established new career highs in goals (12), assists (17), points (29) and penalty minutes (27). He recorded three points (one goal, two assists) and two penalty minutes while skating in each of Ottawa’s seven post-season contests against the New York Rangers. In 186 career NHL contests with Phoenix and Ottawa, he has recorded 75 points (31 goals, 44 assists) and 70 penalty minutes.

On April 18, Turris became the 13th player in franchise history to record a playoff overtime-winning goal, when he helped lift the Senators to a 3-2 win over the Rangers at Scotiabank Place in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference quarter-final series.

Turris was Phoenix’s first-round pick (third overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Anyone else think that contract is just way too big of a risk for someone who hasn't proven much yet?

Think its silly that so many contracts are being based on 'potential' like this.

It is good for the Sens to get him locked up depending on what the cap hit is.... 5 yrs is a little risky though if he busts.

Seems insane a term to me. But whatever. Cap hit alright.

Guy has not proven he can be a solid top 6 player yet.

Huge risk giving him that kind of contract.

he had 29 points in 49 games while adjusting to a new team and playing in an Canadian market.

that would put him on pace for roughly 48 points in 82 games. I think he will only improve from here on out. 5 years maybe a bit long but I think he still has a lot to offer

Max I would give him is 3 years, but I guess its kind of a high risk high reward thing.

I can see him putting up 60-65 points this year if the season starts on time.

Kid finished the season as a 22 year-old. Hasn't even played 200 games.

My money is on him being slightly overpaid next season, and a bargain for the rest of the contract.

3.5 is fair for what he brings to the table right now. The term is a bit long, but as long as his skill doesn't regress, then this should work out to be a good deal for the Sens.

$3.5m under a $70m cap is peanuts for a 50pt 2nd line center in today's NHL. I can't see this kid being anything less than a perennial 20g 50pt guy much like Brendan Morrison.

Incidentally, wasn't B-Mo earning a $3.5m cap hit under a $39m cap in '05-'06?

Being from ontario, I have a soft spot for the Sens/Leafs so hopefully this signing turns out well! I like Turris
