    Ok, I guess.

    Yeah...I mean, the usual Sens Twitter suspects are having a meltdown about it, but spending $1.2M for two seasons on a 6th/7th defenseman who is also tough as nails is not going to have a negative effect on the team.

    I think that's an important designation for this deal to really work. He has to be a 6th or 7th D-man on any given night, so a healthy scratch from time to time. Otherwise, it's good. I'm falling into the category of wanting all D-men to have size and mobility and be able to outlet pass. Boro has the size and some mobility, but can't really make the breakout passes we all want. But then there's the fact that he leaves it out on the ice every single shift.

    That's a little surprising. He should get passed on the depth chart fairly soon. You hope he's tradeable within the next two years.

    That's weird. I must have reloaded a page and it was on the "post" URL still? Anyhow, keeps me still in the hunt to eventually catch PTFlea Smile

    I just wonder how expandable he'll be once Jaros makes the team. I'm not sure Jaros fights but he hits like a mot$&@+*^%ker!

    All this TSN talk about possibly trading Turris. I don't like it. Why don't we give him 6mill x7Y? He'll be a damn fine 2nd line C towards the end of that contract. He's still young. I don't get it. I doubt we keep brassard past his contract. This better be posturing

    Because that's a ridiculous contract. 7 years should only be reserved for true star players. We signed Ryan because the team would have been shredded for letting him go, but he didn't really deserve a 7 year deal either. IMO 7 year deals should only be given to players in or entering their prime.

    He's getting older and his body could give out at any time. 7 or 8 years is too long. If he wants that length, I'd like it down to 5 million.

    I compare the value of Turris to that of Krejci. And krejci is way overpaid. But if he can get a long Donkey deal like that then 7 years for Turris at 6 mill is exactly what hes worth

    Hes had injuries but nothing to suggest he wont be able to last. For a matter of fact anybody can go down to injuries. If he does then you have LTIR. Well have a new owner by then anyways Sarcasm

    Krejci routinely puts up 60 points, where Turris has done it once. Over a longer period of time Krejci also has a high .ppg hy.15 and he's a playoff beast.

    It's not outlandish to compare the two, but I don't know if Turris is really quite there
