Negative things about getting Sturm:
- He's not very good right now at all by any means, and he's in the line up.
- He takes ice time away from players that can actually HELP us i.e. Loktionov/Moller.
- We all know he won't be sent to Manchester OR be claimed, therefore, binding us from icing the best possible hockey team we can ice.
The rosters expand on monday, we can hold more then 23 players....
Sturm would be great asset on our 3rd or 4th line come playoff time.. or he can sit in the press box. Point is, it wont matter because rosterlimit is gone after the deadline.
