Shouldn't you be warming up? This kind of lack of focus is what's killing you guys right now.

Yeah he's been poor and showing no glimmers of hope, but Burrows was bad also returning from his injury last year for 10 games or so.

Im going to give Sturm 10-15 games, and only will then start judging from a far and make hyperbolic statements.

Hindsight is 20/20, but the vet forward signing on a short term deal that's looking really good right now is Steve Sullivan - 1 year 1.5M. He looks really good on the wing with Malkin and Neal. His stickhandling and patience has opened up a lot of room and made Neal look very dangerous thus far.

My beef with Sturm

My problem with Sturm stems from the fact that he was signed on July 1st. Had we signed him in August for exactly the same amount, then I wouldn't have nearly as high expectations. But currently, he's sitting there with Samuelsson and Maholtra as people Gillis cherry-picked for whatever money-puck reason, and I can see exactly why for two of those three players it was done. Currently, I haven't seen a single thing that Sturm has done that would put him in the same category, though I'm still willing to let time tell a better story. I would really like to admit my initial opinion of the guy was wrong.

Peter Schaefer didn't even look this bad. Sturm can barely maintain his balance out there...

Say you physically removed Sturm off the ice from every shift he has played thus far and played a man down in that time-frame............

Would it even be noticeable?

Yes. The opposition's takeaway count would decrease by a noticeable margin.

I hope, for his sake, that he's hurt.

Always felt he'd be waived once Raymond is back - barring a solid performance by Sturm.

I'm not sure about that. Every time Sturm is on the ice, I get to yell at Sturm. Provides some entertainment the past few games at least.

vigneault's lineup shuffle will be interesting once kesler returns from injury next week

i have a hard time believing sturm stays in the lineup considering he's been given alot of opportunity in the preseason and first few regular season games to show anything, and he's contributed about as little as a forward could possibly contribute in those games

At least he did a nice job blocking a shot tonight. That was a plus.

Just trying to um... be positive.

He also got his second shot on goal of the season.

I really wanted to like the sturm signing, and maybe something will change, but the only thing I can think of is he is giving someone on the farm another year of seasoning.

worst case he can't play the 4th line game because he's too soft and defensively unreliable, then gets waived, picked up by someone else and flourishes there.

But I think it's more likely he gets waived and ends up nowhere. Rayray, get well soon!

It's funny how whenever I would do my projected lineup people would question why I never put Sturm on the second line. People often claimed that he would be there ahead of Higgins. Well, you're witnessing why.

Sturm needs to just go. I was very upset when we wasted cap space signing him (in this very thread), and he's done nothing to prove me wrong. I would rather have Tanner Glass on this team than Sturm...at least Glass would hit.

Ditto. Just a shameful move by MG and his crew.

Higgins can play either wing can't he? I think Hodgson and Higgins on a line with Kesler would look really good.

I am getting severe bruising from slapping my forehead at each bonehead play Sturm makes.

For my health please sit Sturm, AV or waive him, Mike... thank you very much.

With the one year contract to Sturm, Gillis set himself up to fail...fast. Which is good.

Apparently, so did Sturm (set himself up to fail fast). Not so good.

I really think this was a move to fiddle with the cap to give most advantage to canucks
