Great Turcotte interview!
I really feel I have a better sense of the man after hearing the interview
than I did before. I was previously nervous about his attitude and feared he
might be a bit of a prima donna, being perhaps reluctant to move
to LW if necessary, etc.
But now I realize Alex just pushes himself very very hard, and won’t
be happy until HE feels he is performing up to an appropriate level.
He clearly expects big things from himself.
Someday, I would really love to see a line of Turcotte (LW) with Vilardi (C) and
Akil Thomas at RW.
IMO, that line could be a real spectacle of skill and puck-movement, as well
as versatility and speed (on the wings).
The Kings’ future looks so promising, it’s scary!
