Turco Keeping A Positive Attitude In Chicago

from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m human. I wish I was playing. I wish I was giving this team what they want from their goaltending. I’ve had my bad moments and my woe-is-me-type stuff but you keep plugging through it because you never know what’s going to happen.”

Turco is maintaining an even keel in a dressing room where just one bad attitude can upset the delicate balance of a team challenged with the task of keeping the Stanley Cup.

“We have a lot of young guys who pay attention,” Turco said. “I want to be a good teammate. I came here to be a part of a winner and you assume it to be playing.

“But when you’re not you still have to hold yourself accountable as a teammate. When I get back in there I want my teammates to look at me as a good teammate and someone to look up to and gain confidence from.”
