He's only 31, he makes $3.5 million, and has averaged 28 goals since the lockout (which would have put him second on the team in goals this year). Now they want to run him out of town for pennies on the dollar.

Penner for Sturm is indeed laughable.

I think Sturm will be a valuable player for the Bruins next year. The Bruins didn't have the team speed of any of the 4 teams that made the conference finals. Sturm should help out with that and the Bruins aren't exactly loaded at the LW position as it is.

I'd hope to move Kobasew and one of Ward/Ference before Marco. Plus what's the point of giving a guy a no movement clause and then saying "hey we want you to leave". I would not be a fan of that business practice.

I'd hope to replace Kobasew with Recchi and one of Axelsson/Yelle with Sobotka.
