No Time To Brine - Should I buy a store brined turkey, a kosher turkey, or regular and just not brine it?

I'm going to be coming in from out of town but will still have to prepare a turkey so I'm not going to have time to brine it. Whole Foods sells pre-brined turkey - should I just go with that, or should I go with a kosher turkey (probably from Whole Foods as well), which I understand has gone through something similar to a brining process? I have heard kosher turkey takes extra prep though because they're not completely plucked, etc. Or should I just forget about the brining process and just clean it and stick it in the oven?
