If i were the Bruins i'd offer Sturm and a pick for someone a bit better/with more upside.
I'm a Sturm guy so it pains me to say this, but Kobasew actually has far more trade value than Sturm does right now. Sturm has a NMC in his contract, so you'd have to get him to waive that first. And even if he was open to a trade, he's 4 years older than Kobasew, makes a million more per year, and is coming off of major knee surgery. Kobasew just turned 27, has three 20 goal seasons under his belt, and is coming off a year that (for anyone who watched the Bruins on a regular basis will tell you) where he was impactful every night. I'm hope and think that Sturm will bounce back next year to be a 30 goal guy, but he's got a lot working against him in terms of trade value.
