Marco Sturm Traded to Kings … Again

Marco Sturm (http://dormrooomsports.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/sturm.jpg)

After flip flopping more than Brett Favre contemplating his retirement (and more than Favre Jr. whenever Jenn Sterger is around), Marco Sturm has been traded by the Bruins to the Kings. Again. Maybekinda. Sturm will once more be shipped out to Los Angeles pending passage of a physical. In return, Boston will receive draft considerations and clear some cap space for their future.

You may remember Sturm from when he injured his knee back on May 1 against the Flyers. Boston went on to lead the series 3-0, and there’s absolutely no way they could’ve lost that series.

Since coming over to the NHL from Dingolfing, Germany (insert your own Brett Favre + “driver” joke here), Sturm amassed 234 goals and 232 assists in 855 games in 14 years. That includes 106 goals and 87 assists in 302 games in six years in Boston. Now, Boston is hoping he has outlived his usefulness and cap space to go along with it. Hopefully, he’s physically fine, but won’t make the B’s regret the trade.
