So where does Kyle Turris go now?The Coyotes finally re-signed their restricted free agent, giving that franchise an opportunity to move the young center to a new team.Let the talk talks heat up.Turris figures to need an AHL conditioning stint to get up to game speed. He has bulked up to 195 pounds with his off-ice work, but he needs to get competitive legs back.Since he doesn’t appear to be a great fit for Coyotes coach Dave Tippett or his system, starting out in Portland would be the best for everybody.Back in 2007, Turris, 22, was the third overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft. He has flashed high-end offensive ability, but has failed to sustain that level of play.He missed training camp and nearly two months of the NHL season while haggling for his new deal.

About a week or so ago (I am a bit behind) I came across a blog about how the Coyotes don’t need Paul Bissonnette anymore. I was curious about what it said so I read it. It was done by a Coyotes fan on a Coyotes blog and I will say I disagree with pretty much every point the author brought up. I know I am not alone because several people I know disagreed and the blog was mentioned...
If a team wins in Phoenix, does anyone know? The announced attendance was just over 9,000, and you know they don't all show up. Then again, even if it weren't Phoenix, there would not be much reason to show up to watch the Anaheim Ducks play hockey. Unless you are the opposing team. With a 4-2 defeat to add to the growing list of losses, you can bet that every single...
