that's insane. zubrus and elias are way better than kyle turris. who cares if they are or are not 'natural centers', they've both spent more time at center in the NHL than turris. like i said, turris is a weak minutes center who has struggled with even that. i think henrique could be better than him right now.
Henrique is almost certainly not better then Turris. Turris was 21 last year, younger players usually progress from season to season. In the playoffs he was one of the few to post a positive CORSI against a very good Detroit team regardless of circumstances. I don't know if Turris is a full time solution at center or if he is better on the wing. That will be for Deboer to figure out but he certainly didn't look out of place in the playoffs.
Elias has done a poor job with Parise so far this season, the faster Zajac gets healthy the faster Elias gets moved down the depth charts. Zubrus is a winger and should stay a winger.
