Sturm dealt to LA

6

What the Bruins are getting in return isn't known yet, but it will be interesting to see, because I'm sure it was Boston putting on the pressure to make the trade right now, and the Devils may be in the same situation when Zach returns in February, or maybe even sooner, when Salvador is ready to return. I can only guess that with Savard's impending return, Boston wanted to pre-empt any cap difficulty when Sturm returns. LA isn't playing well, but Sturm won't be back for a few weeks and there wasn't any reason for LA to pull the trigger now. It also sure doesn't quench LA's thirst for a top-line forward - they will be going hard after Brad Richards and Semin at the trade deadline and I'm sure like any other team they'll be looking at veteran Dmen to provide an extra layer of insurance in case of injuries.
