per lebrun twitter.
sturm just came off IR for the kings. Probably freeing up salary or a roster spot for something.
not sure why chicago's waiving boynton though, he's at league minimum.
also, Craig Rivet re-entry (which was announced yesterday) is actually happening today, presumably because buffalo didnt get the paperwork in by noon yesterday.
edit: pierre's second tweet
Kris Newbury (NYR) on waivers
Mike Commodore (CBJ) on re-entry
Todd Ford (Wash) on waivers
Wade Belak (Nash) on waivers
Sturm needs time to get his conditioning and timing back. With so much time away from the ice, it was unfair to expect him to jump in and provide an immediate impact. A stint in the minors would have served him well.
