Headline: Kyle Turris asks for Trade, Coyotes Deny

On October 16th I posted a rumor that the Phoenix Coyotes’ unsigned center Kyle Turris could be heading to New Jersey.  Well today he has asked for a trade and the Coyotes have denied his request. Turris’ agent Kurt Overhardt has said that it was never about the money. He wants a fresh start with a different club. Overhardt has said that numerous clubs have made trade offers but will not name which clubs have made offers. This is very interesting since the Devils are in Phoenix tonight as they take on the Coyotes. Only time will tell because if Turris is not signed by December 1st he can not play this season. Stay tuned.

Read: Kyle Turris to Devils?

The Hockey News  is posting a rumor that Phoenix Coyote center Kyle Turris could be a good fit to fill the void by the injury to Travis Zajac. I think it would be great for the Devils especially with the amount of young players on the roster. Turris has a lot of potential in probably the weakest part of the roster, even if Zajac is active. If the Devils can get Turris at a decent price and can sign him in the $3 million range it would be well spent. But that is a little less money to give into resigning Zach Parise long term. If the Devils can some how sign both Parise and Turris long term the offense can be very dangerous.
