I don't see that as being questioned at all.

For the price MS is a good deal even if he comes in and falls to being a spot player which I would find unlikely.

Is he the answer to our top 6 LW?

That's kind of the question.
Sturm gives us a much better option on the top line than any of the kids. At least until Parse gets back. His speed could also be used very well on the 3rd line if you promote Simmonds or Poni. Sturm has the ability to play on any line and all situations. His speed will create a lot more space for Brown and Kopitar. He will back off defenders and will give Kopitar that extra half second to snap off some deadly wrist shots.

If Parise becomes available, then you trade a Johnson ++ to make the deal happen.
