Agent Says Turco Will Be A Starting Goalie

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Kurt Overhardt chuckled when I asked if he is worried that Marty Turco might not end up with a place to sit in this free agent game of musical chairs.

“You’re the second guy to ask me that exact same question in that exact same manner,” said the agent for Turco. “The answer is no.”

Overhardt is confident that something will get done in the 7-10 days and that Turco, the all-time Stars win leader who was not offered a contract extension, will be on a contending team.

“He will be on a contender, he will be the starter and he will get a chance to show everbody the kind of goalie he has been throughout his career and will continue to be,” Overhardt said.

He is talking about being a starter in the NHL, right? smile

Chicago lost a lot of players, does that make them still a contender? The fact he said it’s not about money translates to “we’ll take any offer right now”. So if Chicago walks away from Neimi they could sign Turco for cheap.

Philly? it still seems like a fluke to me they made it as far as they did, but they did get there, so I guess that makes them a contender as well.

I was thinking the same thing.
