If you want Turcotte, there's no way you're getting him unless you send back Caufield. I'm not saying the Kings would do that trade, but that's the only player in the Habs' system that the Kings would be remotely interested in giving up Turcotte for.</div></div>
I agree with this <a href="/users/math731" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@math731</a> Poehling is probably a 2-3 c at the moment... Turcotte is having a down season compared to his projection, and as a student at wisconsin this upsets me greatly. But his value is so much higher than Poehling right now. Turcotte is still in the year after his draft, where as Poehling is a little bit down the road, but hes still in that prospect phase where his value is still projection based not result based. If it were a team like the avalanche where they are already in that competing phase and could use the help right now and next year as opposed to waiting a couple years, I think it would be a little closer, but the Kings literally arent going to do anything until Turcotte or whoever they would trade him for (top prospect wise) hits his stride, so they dont really have a reason to trade for a guy like Poehling. I could see a 3 team trade scenario where the bones of it are Price to COL, Byram/Poehling to LAK, and Turcotte to MTL. I think you should explore that and then tag me in it, Id be really curious to see what you come up with on that front!
