What Will The Ottawa Senators Do With Kyle Turris?

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

A unrestricted free agent on July 1, Turris been mentioned in trade talk before but this time it looks like his future in Ottawa is clouded at best with the two sides still not close on a contract extension.

The fact Turris was offered to the Predators as part of the deal to bring Duchene to Ottawa indicates the Senators are ready to move on from their top centre. It’s not known if Turris’ agent Kurt Overhardt was allowed to discuss contract terms with the Predators but if he was then that changes the dynamics here.

It’s believed the St. Louis Blues showed interest in Turris during the pre-season when it was apparent the two sides weren’t close on a deal. Turris’ camp is asking for a seven-year deal in the $6 million per-season range and it’s believed Ottawa has put a five-year contract offer on the table at similar money.
