He looked quite good against Detroit last year in the playoffs though. Arguably their #1 or #2 forward.

25 points in 65 games with a stint in the minors last season?

He's young. People are sometimes too quick to throw 'bust' and 'flop' labels around.

However, my point was that there were signs, (in the playoffs), that he may be turning his game around. (Even though it is a small sample size.)

The one concern I have with Turris are the recent reports and characterizations from the media that he may be a bit of a prima donna, much like how Drew Doughty was portrayed during his holdout. Again, like Drew, his contract demands seem unreasonable given his career production thus far but supposedly he's trying to leverage his way out of Phoenix under Dave Tippett, which is another discouraging sign. My ideal vision is having him seasoned a little more in Manchester under our system but the kid sounds like he thinks he's ready now for the big show and is throwing a bit of a tantrum. If true, I must say that it's disappointing based on my previous opinion of him.

As opposed to continually making trades and going nowhere for 40 years....LIKE the Kings?

Can't really say if Booth is a bust or a flop. Jeebus H Craig Cwise, he plays for the frikkin panthers.

Versteeg, Weiss & Campbell are all scoring well.
