For real this time. I mean, pending the physical, but clearly Lombardi, Chiarelli and the rest believe that he will pass, otherwise the trade would be a hideous waste of everyone’s time. Anyway, for thoughts on the trade check out my comments over here.
In general I think this is a great move, and one that can only help. The only real possible downside is that the Kings give up some of their precious salary cap room, but I don’t see that being a particularly big issue for the Kings in the next couple months. If Sturm can come in and replicate his previous success, Kings fans might look back at this deal (Sturm for… well… nothing) very, very fondly. What are your thoughts on the trade?
