Kyle Turris, Edmonton Oilers
It just never worked out for Kyle Turris in Nashville. It’s viewed as one of the worst deals GM David Poile has made in his tenure for the Nashville Predators.
Turris was placed on unconditional waivers by the Predators as the team finally decided to bite the bullet on a massive deal that never worked out. In this case, the Predators made the wise decision to let a player go.
For all of the issues, Turris did do some good things for the Predators. The problem was he never came close to living up to his contract. That can’t be put entirely on Turris, and should be more so on Poile making the deal in the first place.
Turris has just two points in nine games played so far this season for the Oilers. He’s not really making an impact right now and has failed to reach even 15 minutes of ice time in a game yet.
