Yeah, I didn't think it was that high. The teams below them would be:

Philadelphia
Tampa Bay
Boston
Pittsburgh

Vancouver
Detroit
San Jose

I don't think any of those teams would have claimed Sturm. Dean doesn't make these decisions without calculating the odds. He knew there was a chance Sturm would get claimed, but when he looked at each team's roster he probably felt he had a chance to squeeze him through.

Some will disagree, but Harrold would have been claimed before he got to the Caps.
