Trading Bozak would be a slap in the face for his friends on the team.  And they way they finished last season off, I don't think it's the time or place for this kind of move to be made.

Bozak has looked pretty good so far in the preseason. I don't think the Leafs should be moving him for a possible headcase.

I'm gonna assume most players who have been traded have friends on the team.

In all seriousness I wouldn't trade Bozak for Turris right now, should be able to give up less. I don't put much stock in it happening, fwiw.

Yeah. If there can't be something similar to the Filatov deal worked out there, it becomes less and less appealing. Maybe a for a lesser prospect like Nicholls or Holzer or something along those lines.

I don't see it as a posibility given Burke would rather let a player go than overpay him.  Turris has done absolutly nothing of value in the nhl and he is standing off wanting to be paid?  That is arrogant, shows the wrong message and if I know anything about Burke he would lose any interest.

He may, but again, we don't know what is going on here with this situation. Remember, Kessel was kind of holding out here as well, then Burke traded for him and the deal was done lickity split. This all points to Turris wanting out of Phoenix IMO. For whatever reason.

Sure, but Turris might sign a deal for a million bucks the day he is traded, we don't know what's going on here. Say what you want about his demands right now, but the kid still has a lot of potential. I believe I read somewhere that he doesn't fit in with what Tippet is doing there, so maybe that is enough for him to want out into a better situation, or at least what he perceives to be a better fit for him.

Even though I've followed the Yotes some, I haven't seen him a lot or noticed him much when I did.

Depending on what player shows up: the guy who has played in the NHL to date or the guy that they hoped for when they drafted him, I'm not sure he would be an upgrade to the Leafs top 9.

Tippett likes guys who will play both ways. So does Wilson. That's not his forte right now.

I was wondering if there was a reason as to why they played Colborne three nights in a row. Made me wonder if he was being showcased or more closely examined to see if they could move someone that he would fill in for.

I don't think a day goes by without Burke thinking about a trade ...

I think Turris is basically asking to be moved without saying so directly. I don't think this is all about money. Turris probably wants to get away from Tippett, who is pretty secure as the Coyotes coach, and defensive hockey.

I think the biggest thing with Turris is he is a classic case of a young talent that was rushed to the NHL.   

He was drafted out of the BCHL - a league that is a loooong way from NHL caliber. He didn't turn 18 until almost 2 months after draft day. He spent one year at Wisconsin where he probably should have stayed at least one more year, and since has yo-yo'ed season to season between the NHL > AHL and then NHL again the last 3 years.  Doesn't make a lot of sense.

I remember him from his draft year.. soooo much talent but so so raw and playing in a leauge where he could pretty much score at will on one foot. He needed a lot of time and patience and the Yotes didn't give it to him. He just turned 22 in August. Still a very young, raw player. 

His shortcoming has always been he is shy of physical play.  Defensively he was good at Wisconsin and the AHL.. not sure what was expected from Tippett but I think the production issues are more of a product of playing against men.

So now that it's almost a guarantee that Phoenix will not have a team next year, does that make this trade a little more of a possibility? After looking at his faceoff % I feel as though he may be an upgrade from Bozak.
