Sturm waived, then claimed by Washington

https://twitter.com/Real_ESPNLeBrun/...81373297467392

Today's waiver list: Rivet on re-entry; Bernier cleared; Mike Smith cleared; Marco Sturm on waivers; Nick Boynton on waivers;

That's... unexpected.

Here we go! GO Lombardi! GO KINGS!

I wish But seriously, it sucks for Sturm, I don't think things are over for him, he just had bad luck for injuries this season, he will probably bounce back to a 20 goal form in a season or two with Atlanta or Columbus etc... Best of luck to him. He might be a good addition to Manchester though if he clears

Now for that wish... Get to work Lombardi. You know what to do.

If I were to guess.. Dean needs cap space (or budget room) and needs someone to claim Sturm before the deal is completed. Whoever he's making a deal with has no interest in receiving Sturm in return.

Something's fishy... Sturm is that veteran playoff guy that DL thrives on acquiring.

But we have alot of cap space. Must be for a big contract. Richards?

We should compile some of Sturm's greatest moments as a King and make a video package.

Remember that time he scored that goal?

Our luck it's probably nothing. Still exciting though

Again.. it could be for budget purposes as well.

If not, then Dean needs room to take on $5MM+ worth of contract(s).

YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!! Thank the lawd! Thought Sturm would be a decent acquisition but I really don't like his play. I don't care if it's a trade or Lokti coming back, either way this team should be getting better.

What about Vanek? Blah my mind is racing. Either way, if Dean buries Sturm in the minors does that not create cap space? Or Sturm can suddenly find himself on injured reserve again

(on his line, with Sturm and Simmonds, starting to mesh…)
KOPITAR: “It’s pretty comfortable. It’s one of those things where I’ve played with Simmer before and I’ve played with Sturmy a little bit. It takes a little bit of time, just to get the chemistry going a little bit, and knowing what the reads are. Now, I think we’re getting to that point where we’re going to get over the hump. I thought we were creating chances tonight. We had some good things going in their zone, and that’s what we want to build on.”

Sturm will get picked up by some team. He's a good player. He could still be a top six player on a ton of teams in the league that need offensive help. He's also a veteran who can still put up points.

He was on our 1st line last night and did a pretty nice job. There's zero shot he doesn't get picked up. He probably won't get past the Islanders or Leafs.

I'll take my shot at rumor mongering (where were they on Sturm being waived?). Tampa scouts at last nights game, Lecavalier plays on Tampa, he has a huge contract, Tampa looking for a #1 goalie going forward with Rolo UFA after the season-Vinny to LA (T4) for a package that includes Bernier.

Not a shot in hell this happens. Kings have no reason to acquire another center unless it's a rental and includes on of our current rostered centers going the other way. Plus, if we are trading for someone with a monster contract, it's going to be someone who is actually in the prime of their career and not past it. This trade just doesn't make sense on any level for the Kings
