NHL Captains || 2019-20 Season
Note: Vegas, NY Rangers, Detroit, & Ottawa do NOT have a captain…alternate captains were used.
Postgame: TBL vs. NSH, Tolvanen
IS IT OCTOBER YET?
With MTL looking for center depth, and swinging and missing on duchenne & aho, do you think they'd listen if NSH offered Turris? Also i guess follow up do you think NSH is looking to trade Turris or think he'll be on the team all year?
I think Nashville is definitely still looking to move Turris, but I don’t think Montreal would be particularly interested. Not only because of his cap hit, but because I think they’re fairly comfortable going into next season with Domi and Danault as their top 2 centers. Aho would have been an improvement over Domi, but Turris isn’t, so why bother giving up assets for a guy who isn’t likely to do a better job? At this point, I think it’s likely Turris sticks around for the year, just because there aren’t many teams out there in need of a 2nd line center (at best), and the ones who are aren’t in any position take back his contract. It would have to be bad contract for bad contract, and that defeats the purpose of Nashville trading him. Never say never, but I don’t see a taker for him at this point. Maybe Buffalo, but any trade with them would be tricky, because of the cap space issues.
