Marco Sturm's Value Dropped

Marco Sturm is a great player, don't get me wrong, but his value this season has dropped a lot. Last season, I was expecting a breakout season this year at about, 30-30-60 from him. His production has been horrid this season, with 6-6-12. In these terms, Wayne Primeau has 5-6-11, 1 point less then Sturm. Granted Sturm was injured for a few games, but still.

If his pace continues, he will be right around 19-19-38. Horrible season for a top 6 forward. In the open market right now, the most he could get is 2.3 or so, if he is lucky. I am a fan of Marco, but if this performance continues, I am looking to see an upgrade at the LW posisition, whether Paul Kariya or Brendan Shanahan as a few possible names.

I'd love to get Shanny or Kariya but nethier of them are going to be avaliable unless it's a blockbuster trade. We do need another offensive player in the line up. For now look for the Bruins to be sending guys back and forth between Providence for some energy. Pacal Pelliter is a canidate who looked great in camp.

His value drop and i think Sturm might reconsider his strategy to go in the UFA market. After last season, Sturm was convince that he can collect a good raise but with his performance, so far, he won't get that huge raise.
