Brandon Cohen- Kyle Turris
Kyle Turris was one of the crucial cogs in the well-oiled machine that defeated the Rangers in the 2017 NHL Playoffs. Now it’s time to bring him over to the dark side.
A year after acquiring Mika Zibanejad from the Ottawa Senators, the Rangers should look to acquire another Senators center. Kyle Turris has one year remaining on his contract, making him a prime candidate to join a win-now team.
Turris’ price tag should be high, but he would slot directly into Derek Stepan’s vacated role. He played at Wisconsin much like Stepan, Ryan McDonagh, and Brendan Smith, and he plays a terrific all around game.
New York could give Turris a trial run on Broadway for a year, then re-sign him if his time works out. Turris would be a terrific candidate to bring aboard as the next big move.
