    McKenzie is saying a conditional draft pick. Salary dump. See ya Sturm

  2. G-Rant says:

    Glad its him over any of the youth.

  3. ELWOPPO says:

    How much money we got now? Anybody know?

  4. Gcole says:

    sweet! not that i hate sturm, but id take him to go over anyone really. so now we should be set capwise for savard to return? and then some?

  5. Bruins says:

    Kinda sucks to see Sturm go as he was one of those guys that gave it his all every shift, but this had to be done. It was either him, Ryder or Wheeler and Paille.

  6. MattG says:

    Sad to see Sturmy go, was a good soldier, but that does wonders for our cap. Sturm, ryder, wheeler, recchi, whitfield, and schafer coming off the books at the end of the year, leaves us wide open to keep our core intact and to bring in a stud or 2.

    spox.com from germany says it’s a 5th rounder, which could develop into a 2nd rounder, depending of his performances

  8. ELWOPPO says:

    The Only thing im gonna miss about sturm is his crazy faces he makes when he scores a goal!!! Maybe Chia trades Paille and Wheeler for that PM defenceman everyone is talking about? Give Caron more playing time on the wing considering he’s been a healthy scratch latey!!!!

    *Lately*

  10. Whopperfoo says:

    Think they may have told the team before last night’s game that it was sturm being moved and not one of them? It might certainly explain the improved play – as no one was fearful of their job?

    Betcha they go back on the hotstreak they were on earlier.

  11. N.Horton18 says:

    i would have like a prospect over a pick but either way we got lots of salery space now

  12. Whopperfoo says:

    Not exactly? By my understanding we are only under the cap by like 40k? We would have had to move ryder or someone else just to fit sturm. We just avoided having to do that.

    • #4 says:

      Yep 40k is close to the right number. Very risky no cap room incase a shortterm injury. I still smell another deal coming.

  13. N.Horton18 says:

    how does that make sense in the last couple days we traded 4.3 million in cap space

  14. spencer70390@hotmail.com says:

    Because sturm was off the cap and so was savard on the LTIR.

    I like the deal, i think the earlier the team that will be in it for the long haul is set, the better chance we have to gel and make a deep playoff run. I am hesitant to include wheeler in a deal unless we get a LEGITIMATE puck moving D man (Kaberle, Yandle), not mike weaver or another mediocre option. Wheeler has showed he is willing to skate and play hard EVERY night, something not many bruins have done. I also like his versitility. I would definetely trade paille wheeler and our 1st for yandle and lock him up. otherewise, I say we trade paille and a pick and maybe a prospect (hamill, knacksedt?) for a PMD.

    on an unrelated note, although he is putting up numbers and skating better, lucic has not been the same physical force. I was at the game in phili last night, and people around me were hating on me for looch not fighting “anyone”. i threw it right back at them until i was embarassed when shelley challenged him verbally right in front of us and again after the whistle with a shove. I understand score and situation, as well as that shelley is a goon, so this particular situation may not apply, and i am a diehard looch fan, but he does have a track record of picking his spots as well as not playing with the same reckless abandon as his rookie season

    • #4 says:

      dude your doing it wrong. Put your email in the wrong spot lol.

    • Gcole says:

      Yea but il take a lucic scoring 11 goals already and having only a few fights over a lucic who scores half that and beats in faces… Ofcourse you know if there’s a choice to have both lol

  15. ELWOPPO says:

    What up spencerrrrrrrrr!

  16. moast says:

    Savvy in tonight!!! Yah baby!!!
    Im also hearing hes on a line with Horton and Looch.
    Doesn’t make sence to me……but hey put him anywhere and Im stoked!!

  17. lucic crew says:
