This would seem like the obvious solution. Sturm is more likely to pass through waivers (and I'd be less upset if someone claimed him), his skillset is easier for the Bruins to replace with the talent currently in the organization, and he has a NTC.

The problem is, if the reports are true that Savard will return before Sturm, they'll have to clear a much bigger salary just to get Sturm on the roster to waive him. I suppose PCS is a vague enough diagnosis that they could hold Savard back long enough to deal Paille and send some guys down and waive Sturm prior to Savard being activated.

In Providence, Sturm gets the benefit of an extended rehab, and can return in the playoffs if we have depth issues.
