Also Kessel just had surgery and will miss a month or 2 of the season next year. I imagine any team is going to want to wait and see how he is when he comes back before dealing for him.
Assuming Sturm would be willing to waive his NTC:
To LA: Sturm and Ferrence ($3.5 & 1.4)
To Boston: Preissing & Alec Martinez
LA gets a fast, defensively responsible LW who will score 25-30 goals.
Boston saves some cap room (but not much) and gets a puck moving dman and a prospect who has been passed over in LA's system but might get a chance in Boston.
I would do that deal if I was Lombardi. I know Sturm isn't the sexy name that Kings' fans may be looking for, but he would improve our left side quite a bit.
