No trade for Turco.
New Stars co-general manager Les Jackson has no plans to trade veteran goalie Marty Turco.
As reported in Tuesday’s Dallas Morning News, Jackson was asked about rumours that the Stars might want to trade Turco to the Tampa Bay Lightning for winger Martin St. Louis, Jackson said that he was not expecting to trade Turco to anyone.
“I don’t like to talk about rumours. But in regard to Turco, the first thing about that is, I don’t want to trade him. And the second thing is, I really have no plans to trade him,” Jackson said.

Remember the days when no one wanted to come play in the Montreal Forum. Teams knew that they would be in for a very tough game. If you touched one of the habs, you would have to pay. Those days are long gone. Every Habs team that won a cup had a guy or 2 to clean your clock. The role players in Montreal are not playing their roles. Latendresse can’t be on your 3rd or 4th lines. Neither can Ryder. If Montreal has so many young prospects why do they have 8 defencemen in the lineup every night.
