      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.

[Extension] Kyle Turris 5 Year Extension With Ottawa

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised Turris would want this, you'd think he'd sign a shorter contract, prove himself and cash in in a couple years.

It's not that bad IMO. He just turned 23 and the Coyotes stunted his growth (hardly gave him ice time and frequently had him playing on poor lines) but he still has big potential.

Keep in mind he only played 49 games as a Senator and if you take his averages and compare them to a full season his stats would have looked like this...

Games: 82

Goals: 20

Assists: 28

Points: 48

Avg Ice Time: 17:21

With the cap projected to raise as well as player salary cap limites raising you see players getting bigger contracts this offseason as we have every year since the previous lockout when the cap was only about 39 million with the max player cap being approx 7 million.

3.5 million for that production in games played is reasonable. Plus liked mentioned given it was his 1st real taste of the NHL given how poorly the Yotes used him I feel it's a safe prediction to think the former #3 overall pick will get better and may even be a huge bargain at this price.

well this contract proves that his request for 4M + in PHX last year was indeed to get a trade (If there was any doubt left)

I think it's a great signing. Relatively good dollars and a 5 year deal. He seemed to integrate well in Ontario and started living up to some of the promise given when Phoenix drafted him. I think he will excel now he seems to in a better hockey climate.

Considering we paid Kes $5m, Booth $4.25, and Burrows & Higgins $2m for similar production, Turris's contract looks good hit-wise though I imagine he's going to be a hell of a bargain when he gets comfortable in Ottawa.

He's never played a full nhl season, most games played is 65 games. His career high in goals is 12, career high in points is only 29. Too risky imo.

Overpayment from what we've seen so far but he has the potential to make this a great deal.

Great signing. I don't see him getting less than 40 points if he is healthy.
