Tough to determine if I like this signing or not. On the one hand, Sturm is a 7 time 20+ goal scorer, most recently in 09/10. He's responsible defensively, he's a good locker room guy, and he gives us a bit of veteran edge.

That said, I don't know that he's all that much better consistency-wise than Raymond, Higgins or Samuelsson. Seems like another streaky guy.

But really, I would rather a low-risk signing like Sturm on a 1-year deal than throwing $4.5m at a guy like Laich or Leino. I am certainly curious, however, as to what Simon Gagne will ultimately sign for.
