Regarding the strange case of intransigent Phoenix center Kyle Turis, the 22-year-old Group II free agent who will be ineligible to play in the NHL this season if he remains unsigned by Dec. 1, but who is refusing to sign nonetheless because he feels he has been mistreated by the Coyotes’ organization:

Slap Shots has learned Turris, the third-overall pick in the 2007 Entry Draft who has recorded 46 points (19-27) in 131 games, recently informed Coyotes general manager Don Maloney he would sign if the Coyotes guarantee to trade him within 48 hours in a deal that would be brokered by the player.

    there was an interview with Maloney lastnight after the Oiler game, and he says he will absolutely not trade turris still. he sounded like he wants to make an example of the kid. unproven kids arent worth 3-4 mil a year, in fact he's not even worth the 2.5 mil he was offered. 

    19 goals,46pts in 131 gp is barely worth 1mil per year, he needs to prove himself and his potential, right now all i see is his potential to hold out anytime things dont go his way.
    if you sit him out the year Maloney i give you a big thuimbs up. 🙂
