We need a left winger....

Rumour is that the Bruins might send Sturm to the minors for cap space. How about it DL? Swing a deal of a prospect, or draft pick(s). I think he'll be a good pickup to fill the void.

If that is the case then just claim him off waivers.

HIGHLY doubt Sturm would make it to us on waivers if a guy like O'Sullivan got claimed. Send a pick their way and take Sturm please. We NEED something on LW. It's gotten to pathetic levels now.

I doubt Sturm will be first line material either after all those knee problems. My guess he'll look something like Handzus on his first season on the Kings.

If you're talking about Patrick O'Sullivan the former Kings- and Oilers player, he was never claimed. He cleared and was dealt to the Coyotes who bought him out the same day.

However, I also doubt that Sturm would make it to us through waivers

I can't see the Kings trading assets for Sturm. If the Bruins waive Sturm I think he could be avaialble to the Kings and maybe it would be a good fit. His injuries are a red flag for most teams I would think and a fairly high salary to gamble on (3.5 million). On the other hand he could be worth the risk, he is a pretty decent scorer and pk guy when healthy. His contract expires at the end of the year so he wouldn't be a long term gamble atleast.

Wow, blast from the past:

In one of the dumbest moves in Kings trade-deadline history (and that is saying a lot), the Kings traded 24-year-old, 20-goal scorer Patrick O'Sullivan and a second-round draft pick to the Carolina Hurricanes for injury-plagued forward Justin Williams.

Sure MSturm might be good for the Kings but so might and extensive shot from ALoktionov,OMoller,BSchenn,BHolloway,etc etc etc...I'd keep the cash and draft choices,prospects for our own prospects...

... Yep the guy who's won just as many Cups as Patrick O'Sullivan and has built such a good organization over five plus seasons that the great Dwight King is on first line LW duty

I dont know JT, he had been struggling for awhile and really, he had been given ice time and opportunity to earn his way. He has the talent but for some reason hasn't been able to stick with 3 NHL teams.

I think its on him now.

... He played ONE season with a terrible team, moves on and plays 9 minutes a game for 10 games with a mediocre team. What's not to know??? Are those reasonable opportunities? Of course not. He scored 96 points in two seasons before that. Does that not count for anything?

He's making 600 grand a year, about the same as Dwight King. I KNOW he's a better player than Dwight King. What's the problem with taking a flier? He has skill. He got discouraged with the losing in Edmonton; that happens. The Kings need a guy who can play on that line. He's been teammates with Kopitar and Brown. Some of the fans here (of which I am one) still like him and think he's worth a shot. He's 25 years old. He can only go up from where he is now, right? I think at this point it's not so much a question of "Why?" as much as it is "Why Not?"

Then why with all of his skill was he passed over again? Do you think that the Oilers wanted him to fail or that the Canes thought "lets bring POS on board and then not give him a shot"? Why did we deal him and then why did he fail at two different teams so far?

I really like POS and want him to make it but there has to be something going on that made 3 teams give up on him especially when you consider his skill set.

Its on him.

For whatever the reason, HF views the ****** site as (probably?) a competitor, and thus will not allow the site's URL to be shown/linked from here. Weird, but strangely logical I guess.

thanks - never even heard of that site <shrug>

Quite the prognostication regardless - lol. Sounds like something a poster here might write.

The guy got waived by the worst team in the NHL, got blasted by TSN officials, held out in contract talks, then waived by another team.

The last one I can understand the waiving (couldn't play top-9), but enough was enough. He was passed up enough times in his draft year to have the crowd chanting for Patrick O' Sullivan. I'm just not seeing the correct work ethic from POS, and I was red-faced over the initial trade at the deadline. Now though? I'm all for Williams. I'd like to hear Steve Keegan's view on the trade now to.

My LW shot in the dark? Vanek. Parise will cost higher, Semin I can't see being moved. He's the right age, talent, and fit. That's just my duel-pennies though.

If Sturm was a legit first line LW, the Bruins wouldn't be sending him to the minors.

I am a Bruins fan just here to try and shed some light on Sturm.
The fact is nobody knows what GM - Chiarelli is going to do. I don't want to lose Sturm or anyone else but the cap world is what it is. It could be Sturm going to the minors but may also be Ryder. The Bruins have some options but it basically comes down to who gets picked up off of the waiver wire or who steps up with a deal first.
The Bruins ( due to the cap ) will not be able to hum and haw over anything. If you want someone like Sturm or Ryder or Wheeler or Hunwick or Ference etc, just make an offer and you could get any one of them cheap as Boston cannot take anything back salary wise and won't have the time to think it over.

that has more to do with the cap than it does his talent
