    Miss that Goal Face!

    Edit: I know there was probably a thread in October but just couldn't remember. So today it is officially a forgone conclusion.

    Who was the poster who penned the immortal Doors parody: Ryder's out with Sturm, the Newfie and the Germ...?

    Sturm was a pretty useful cog in the B's struggle back to respectability.  Always had to carry that shadow of being a piece of the JT trade.  He never did recover from that last knee injury, not really.  Pride must have taken a hit when he was traded to LA for...nothing...because the Bruins had to make a move once someone was coming back off of LTIR.  Was it Savard? 

    All due respect to Sturm, though, this (and Redden's retirement) is a bit like my vow to stop sleeping with SI Swimsuit Cover Models.  Not really my choice no matter how I spin it.

    Trust me on this, WAY too much overhead with all of those SI Swimsuit models, no matter how many I sleep with, they are invariably a pain in the ...  

    huh?  what?  I just woke up at my keyboard.  I believe I was typing in my sleep.

    Another Rob Ford delusion below Bookboy?

    I always liked Sturm, he was fast, competitive, and clutch.  Is he still living in Boston?

    I always liked "Herr Goal Face", he scored some timely goals for the B's (unlike the guy he was traded for, but that's another story).

    That game 6 goal against the Habs is one of my favoirte B's moments. Him holding onto it then putting it in, Neely going nuts upstairs and Jack Edwards yelling how the building was shaking...A big moment in the revival of a franchise.

    That dude played hard.  We certainly couldn't ask for him to give any more than he did.

    I remember that goal like it was yesterday. Even though they eventually lost game 7 of that series to the Habs, you are bang on about it being a revival of the franchise. I honestly think that goal in that atmoshere was the moment the franchise turned for the better. I always respected Sturm and wish him well.

    Hard to dislike the guy, although I'm sure some nitwit on this board blasted him at some point :P

    Right, particularly when I dared to suggest signing him (as Miro Šatan 2.0) during last season.

    Danke, Marco - schone Deine Knie und geniess Deinen wohlverdienten Ruhestand in Florida - alles Gute!

    I'll never forget his Game Six winner against Montreal to set up game 7, in 2008.

    There is still a crack in my living room ceiling where I hit my head, jumping after that goal. It will stay unrepaired as long as I live.

    False alarm, Don-Bruino. It means "rest your knees" in German; Google translate got it wrong, trust me.

    Don't worry about it - "if you don't use it, you'll lose it", simple as that.
