Honestly, it's a win win situation for us in signing Sturm. If he plays to the way he was before, and he clicks with Kesler or any other players. We gain. If he sucked and skated slower than Marc Choinard, then we'll just waive his ass and have Aquilini pay for his salary to play for the Wolves.

Plus, I don't know what's the fuss with losing Torres? Whether the Canucks were pushed around or not, Torres didn't do anything to push back. He doesn't even kill penalties.

I'm probably glad that we lost players like Glass and Torres because our bottom six needs more of players who can actually play more offensive and can allow us to skate end to end.

thats a decent price for him...id rather have paid the extra million and got gagne over sturm....assuming this is a perfect world and the scenario was even possible

I see Bolduc followed Torres and joined Phoenix

and anthony Stewart went for cheap

@GMillerTSN
Gord Miller
Have to think the NJ Devils will be wondering how the Richards contract gets approved when Kovalchuk's got bounced and cost them draft picks

@GMillerTSN
Gord Miller
With a $10m SB in the first year (plus $2m in salary) and an $8m SB in the second year, Richards will receive $20m in the next 12 months.

@GMillerTSN
Gord Miller
Richards year by year: $12m, $12m, $9m, $8.5m, $8.5m, $7m, $1m, $1m, $1m. $10m SB+$2m the salary first year, $8m SB + $4m salary the second

just wow...

LOLOL is Richards really worth paying 12 mill a year?
20 mill in the next 12 months? huge overpayment, NHL is becoming a joke. I foresee another lockout

I think thats a good call for him. After everything hes gone through he needs a change of scenery especially since True North knows everything he's been going through.

canucks were 1 win away from winning the cup, they dont need much adjustment although this team does seem much more weaker without
torres and eherhoff already...

Rumor was he was suicidal and suffers from depression. Those are rumors though so take it for what it's worth.
