SN saying 1.65M AAV, 2 years

Hard to really complain about that AAV. If he ends up playing wing, so be it. He should help a 2nd PP unit. It's kind of a Gagner replacement in the lineup. Turris should produce more than Gagner did though.

I have a hard time imagining he fills the 3C role that some want, a guy that can be depended on for defensive assignments. That's just not the kind of player he is.

Great AAV. I would have thought more than 2.

I like this signing. 1.65 mill for a right handed, 3rd line center. He skates well and has skill and he should have game left.

Like this signing a lot. The AAV is low enough that he should be able to provide value for it even if he isn't the player he once was. The term is low enough that there are outs if it doesn't work out.

Low risk, decent reward signing.

The cap hit is great. There are better options out there, so I just hope they don't use the money saved here on not getting a better 3C and give Markstrom a stupid contract.

I believe Khudobin has similar numbers (smaller sample size though) and should be far cheaper.

Khudobin is way worse than Turris at 3C. I don't think he's EVER won a face-off.

I would be worried about Khudobin's skating as a 3rd line center having to move around the ice with goalie gear on.

He would be a great penalty killer though. Probably better at shot blocking than Russell.

Might have Russell pushing him out of the way out of jealousy if he's stealing some of Russell's blocks.

For 3C, I think the Oilers need someone that doesn't get them killed in terms of goal differential (with McDavid and Drai, the 3C just needs to be close to even and everything is good). They also should be able to PK so that Nuge and Drai don't have to do it as much. Kyle Turris' 5x5 GF% has not been good the last few years, and that's with Nashville, which is even worse. And he doesn't PK.

Based on that criteria, in terms of FA, I think that Koivu or Soderberg would be better in this spot.

Woodguy went into a deep dive on these players and a bunch more on his blog, which is where I got most of my data from. https://becauseoilers.blogspot.com/

Woodguy also really likes Johann Larsson, but i'm not sure that his last season wasn't just a one off.

Turris wasn't a fit in Nashville, he was great in Ottawa.

I saw lots of what woodguy said and I can appreciate where he is coming from and the value he puts in all his advanced stats. But Larsson is a left handed center that has scored 10 goals once and this past season had 6 goals and 18 its in 62 games. That' an 8 goal, 24 pt pace. He's 28 so he is what he is. I don't see how that screams 3rd line center.

Koivu is going to be 38 yrs old and is slow and had 4 goals and 21 its last year. I don't see how bringing in a guy that old and slow helps you when you need more speed on your team.

The issue I see is how you really don't want Turris playing against good players. So, if our intention is that Turris is our 3rd line C, Tippett is locked into needing to ensure McDavid and Drai are always getting the tough defensive assignments. Turris can't kill penalties at all either, so I guess Drai is likely locked in as a full time PKer.

Could have changed the dynamic of this team a bit with a solid 2-way C on the 3rd line, someone that can reliably play some at least even hockey against good players. Turris doesn't really help here.

I think the Oilers need to get some scoring from the bottom 6. Turris should help with that.

Woodguy also really likes Johann Larsson, but i'm not sure that his last season wasn't just a one off.

Turris wasn't a fit in Nashville, he was great in Ottawa.

I saw lots of what woodguy said and I can appreciate where he is coming from and the value he puts in all his advanced stats. But Larsson is a left handed center that has scored 10 goals once and this past season had 6 goals and 18 its in 62 games. That' an 8 goal, 24 pt pace. He's 28 so he is what he is. I don't see how that screams 3rd line center.

Koivu is going to be 38 yrs old and is slow and had 4 goals and 21 its last year. I don't see how bringing in a guy that old and slow helps you when you need more speed on your team.




The issue I see is how you really don't want Turris playing against good players. So, if our intention is that Turris is our 3rd line C, Tippett is locked into needing to ensure McDavid and Drai are always getting the tough defensive assignments. Turris can't kill penalties at all either, so I guess Drai is likely locked in as a full time PKer.

Could have changed the dynamic of this team a bit with a solid 2-way C on the 3rd line, someone that can reliably play some at least even hockey against good players. Turris doesn't really help here.

I think the Oilers need to get some scoring from the bottom 6. Turris should help with that.


Scoring is good. As long as you're not getting scored on more than you score. As Goose points out, Turris has been getting beat up at even strength a lot in his career.

Maybe it can work though. If Tippett does work it so his 3rd line gets some sheltered ice time against weak competition, maybe a Turris centered line could do some damage. That means McDavid or Drai are the guys opening that door by playing the tough minutes, which I guess is fair going by salaries :)

Still would be nice though to have a more dependable all situation 3rd line that could open up McDavid and Drai to take advantage of some weak competition though.

Turris' 5x5 GF% in his last 3 years in Ottawa was not good: 43.75% / 48.24% / 36.36% (small sample before being traded to NSH).

Last year in Nashville, when Turris was on the ice at 5x5, the Predators gave up 8 more goals than they scored. That's obviously not all on him, but for context the Predators as a team scored 17 more goals than they gave up at 5x5, (the Oilers were -16 in this category). It's notable in that those 8 goals would more than wipe out the advantage that the Oilers had in that category (+7), with Leon on the ice.

Like I said, the contract is great, and I hope he can bounce back, but the Oilers are going to need him to be better than he's been over the past few seasons.

Based on that criteria, in terms of FA, I think that Koivu or Soderberg would be better in this spot.


Soderberg would have been good. Curious what he ends up getting, my guess is it could be a lot higher.

Koivu I had some time for also, but both his age and injury history had me a little leery.

I do think the RH shot was a big selling feature for the Oilers, something neither Koivu or Soderberg possess.

We will see. I think he will likely live up to the contract, whether that is on the wing or centre. You might be able to flip him and Nuge if it comes to it.

Really like this. For a bad Kyle Turris year, he was on pace for 41 points last season. That would be great value if we can count on that kind of production.

I don't like the fact they lost the picks for AA but if that is where is money went, hard not to like that.

I am very interested to see what he gets considering the rumors are the Oilers offered 2 yrs at 2.4 mill per and he said no.

In 2017-2018 he had 2.42 pts/60 minutes TOI (1,263 min TOI, 76 games)
In 2018-2019 he had 1.60 pts/60 minutes TOI (863 min TOI, 55 games)
In 2019-2020 he had 1.95 pts/60 minutes TOI (956 min TOI, 62 games)

Big drop off in TOI last two seasons, likely injuries and/or dropped down to secondary role,
Turris gets to hit the <refresh> button..
Good signing IMHO
