from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
Turris, the third overall pick in the 2007 NHL draft, is at the end of his entry-level deal, but talks with the Coyotes have gone nowhere. Unless there is a seismic change in tenor between the two sides, it’s hard to imagine he will be at camp when the Coyotes report for physicals in Glendale, Ariz., on Sept. 16. The team’s first on-ice session is set for a day later.
In 131 NHL games spread mostly over two seasons, Turris has scored just 19 goals. With the recent acquisition of veteran center Daymond Langkow, Turris now sits third on the team’s depth chart (at best) behind Langkow and a healthy Martin Hanzal.
Still, league sources told ESPN.com that Turris is looking for a three-year deal worth an average of slightly more than $4 million annually or a two-year deal worth slightly more than $3 million.
