Draft Option #7: Alex Turcotte

Recommended Posts

That's concerning. I wonder if it was the hip? Something to think about. You're not any good out on IR.

Unfortunately, he is not on the initial U18 USA roster due to injury. 

He was injured the first half of the season and now another injury.  

If you are hoping for him at 7, this could help drop him

The Sabres need to look at his injuries. I like this guy a lot, but hopefully he's not made of glass.

The combine may reveal some issues as well.

looks like all the top forwards except Dach will be there. Should be fun watching, i really like that we know the Sabres draft position before the Tournament.

Turcotte has an edge.  He has taken a few penalties, but I like that he doesn’t mind going to the net and mixing it up.

Not to sound cliche but were they “good” penalties or “bad” penalties?

Turcotte is the "physicality" or "intensity" I want on my team. That hard working intensity wins you playoff games. I think this is where I get into arguments with others over this distinction. I feel as though it might be semantics at this point.

No I think they are two distinct traits and Turcotte seems to have both.  See other debate and why I agree I too like Turcotte.

I did. I think you are right.

Best example I can think of distinguishing the two traits is Jonathan Toews in his prime was one intense guy but not overly physical vs someone like Victor Hedman who is physical and skilled but not overly intense

As long as we don't make another Alex Nylander mistake, we should get a good player at this spot.

Might be why Botts fired some people when he came in.
