    Sturm trade on hold per Bob Mckenzie: Medical Issues

    "Sturm waived NTC to go to LAK and thought he was on his way but fact he is still injured complicated matters. Stay tuned. No timeline."

    "Medical issues clouding potential Marco Sturm trade from BOS to LAK. No deal in place at this time. Some uncertainty whether it gets done."

    "But to be clear, was told Sturm deal "dead as of now." Both teams leaving door open."

    I just heard that too.  I had found it interesting that the Bruins hadn't "confirmed" the deal yet.  I guess we know why now.

    If Sturm isn't healthy enough to return, what is the urgency to dump his salary?

    Although "Sturmy" is technically still injured, he is pretty much a 1-dimensional player with solid speed. Yours Truly was never really a huge fan of him while he was in SJ and even with the Bruins! I sure hope they can get more for him than just a conditional draft pick. They should attempt to get in return a puck-moving offensive defencemen! Let the Great Discussion begin!

    Guys when and if he is dealt to LA watch who he plays with.  Kopitar has had no wingers this year to play with.  I can almost promise he will line up on his wing and put up some decent numbers if he can remain healthy

    Hey Legion.. just saw this on cbc.ca and it looks like maybe McKenzie jumped the gun a bit.. the first real comment coming from either team..

    Kings president and general manager Dean Lombardi told Hockey Night in Canada Radio that the team has "looked into" the move, but added that talks weren't as far along as reports — some of which said it was already a done deal — suggested.

    One dimensional players are usually one dimensional.  Sturm could score and kill penalties.

    Didn't the Kings realize he was injured? Where did they think he was all season? It was pretty common knowledge that he was rehabbing a knee injury.

    They should trade a 32-year-old player coming off major surgery halfway through the season who will be unrestricted after his larger than needed contract expires in five months...for anything they could get.

    If McQuaid was on another team, Sturm would have to come along with a third round pick.  They will get very, very little for him.

    What does McQuaid have to do with it?

    So much for that sigh of relief we all heaved this afternoon.

    Re: Sturm trade on hold per Bob Mckenzie: Medical Issues

    Could Sturm come back in January/February with a reduced cap hit? Maybe he could be a half season (or less) player like Satan was last year. As a B's fan I'd like to see that happen as opposed to bringing in some of the old guy names mentioned in these threads. At least Bruins managment would have a good read on his true medical staus. My two cents on Marco....

    No.   The Bruins are technically over the cap right now, and receiving long-term injury reserve (LTIR) cap relief.  As long as Sturm is on the team and on LTIR the team cannot bank any cap space to use later in the season.  Cap space is calculated by the dally average of each player's salary based on a 183 day season.  Marco Sturm's cap hit is $19,126 every day, regardless of when he comes off of LTIR.

    I think LA is balking, they want the Bruins to sweeten the deal for their prized 5th round pick.

    I say throw in the one-eyed swede aka carl Soderberg to get it done!

    Ok, how does one read "the trade" with LA?  Did LA back out?, questionable as it was obvious Sturm had two knee surgeries.  Or, is LA looking for more?, now that is GM suicide. Or, did the trade not take place as reported with a upon physical examination in the contract not being divulged?  Or, is this another NHL boondoggle exercise.

    Re: Sturm trade on hold per Bob Mckenzie: Medical Issues

    The trade had to have taken place Sturm was in the locker room saying his goodbyes and their is no way Sturm made it over two LA that quickly for a physical so my thinking is Lombardi got a better winger from another team and called PC to tell him he wanted to wait till Sturm was ready to play before finalizing the.

    As Milbury said last night if NHL.com had it up on their website that probably means the league received paperwork to move forward. Oh and Ryder better keep playing nervous as he is now not off the hook.

    11:20 p.m.: McKenzie tweets the following:

    “Final word on aborted Sturm deal: LAK were furnished with player’s medical records. They had concerns with what they saw.”

    'Concerns' is a vague word, isn't it?  I wouldn't toss this deal in the shredder just yet.  It may just mean they want to give up less now, or they want to see him play (in Providence?) first.  Certainly a buzz-kill though.  It would have been nice heading into the weekend not thinking about who's going to be shipped out just to fit under the cap.

    Re: Sturm trade on hold per Bob Mckenzie: Medical Issues

    If Sturm gets sent to Providence on a conditioning stint, doesn't he come off of LTIR, thus eliminating his cap relief?  If so, he would have to clear waivers for the team to be relieved of his cap hit.
