It's not cap space. Courtesy of capgeek.com 's daily tracker for the LA Kings:
Max Acquisition Space - $18,195,129
Definition of Max Acquisition Space: "The full-season cap hit(s) that can be added to the current roster on the selected date. If applicable to the selected team, long-term injured reserve is factored into the total. However, this total does not factor in potential bonus cushion deductions."
This is because we are 142 days into a 186 salary-day season.
Sturm was placed on waivers for roster flexibility. Period. It may indicate an upcoming trade. It may indicate nothing at all. But it was definitely NOT done to create salary cap room (unless we are trading for 2 or 3 superstars, which isn't likely).
