Where Turco & Biron Could Land

Pierre LeBrun and Scott Burnside of ESPN discuss possible destinations for Marty Turco and Marty Biron…

Burnside: The one team I look at and wonder about needing or wanting a veteran presence is Los Angeles. The Kings are on fire and I think a lock to make the playoffs. But remember what happened to a good Montreal team in 2008 that entrusted its playoff goaltending chores to untested youngsters Price and Halak—the Habs narrowly beat eighth-seed Boston and then lost in five to a less-talented Philadelphia team in large part because Price and Halak couldn’t handle the pressure….

LeBrun: Well, right now, the word out of Long Island is Snow isn’t getting offered more than a third-rounder for Biron, which seems absurd to me. But I guess it speaks to the market place. As for the Kings, while I agree with your premise, especially with Biron because he’s a cheaper cap hit, I’m told the Kings have lukewarm interest.
