Report: Bruins trade Sturm to Kings
By: DJ Bean

According to TSN's Darren Dreger (via twitter) the Bruins have traded winger Marco Sturm to the Kings. TSN is also reporting the Bruins will be receiving a conditional draft pick for Sturm, with ESPN's Jimmy Murphy reporting the pick is a fifth-rounder.

 

Sturm is still recovering from a torn ACL and MCL suffered in last year's playoffs. In trading him and his $3.5 million salary cap hit, the team will be cap-compliant without any issue. The team would have needed to shed salary before Sturm's return, as they had been given cap relief with both Sturm and Marc Savard on long-term injury reserve.

Savard, Bruins to meet to determine status
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Marc Savard will meet with general manager Peter Chiarelli and coach Claude Julien Thursday afternoon to determine the Savard's status for the team's game against the Lightning on Thursday night. 

 

"I don't want to get too far ahead with predicting anything before I have an answer," Julien said following the team's off-ice work on Thursday. Savard was one of five players to skate Thursday morning, as he took the ice with Marco Sturm, Daniel Paille, Tuukka Rask, and Jordan Caron. 

 

Julien did indicate that Savard has reached a point at which he is no longer adjusting or catching up in practice and workouts, and that his only remaining step in his return from post-concussion symptoms is to play. 

 

"I think we've gotten as much as we can out him," Julien said. "… He's at that stage where he's pretty close to have reached his max with conditioning...

Tom Brady: 'This is not the Super Bowl'

FOXBORO -- The biggest game of the year is about to take place at Gillette Stadium but Tom Brady knows it isn't the biggest game he wants to play in this season. The Patriots quarterback - asked about the level of importance of Monday night's meeting of the 9-2 Patriots and 9-2 Jets sounded an reasonable tone. 

 

"It's a game, a regular season game against a division opponent that is 9-2," Brady said. "I think we treat it just like that. This is not the Super Bowl. There are games after this game that are very important as well. This game for what we're trying to accomplish and winning our division - which is always the first goal of this team - it's a big game. You can't expect to win the division and lose to the same team twice.

 

Brady reference the loss to the Jets in Week 2 when the Patriots were outscored 21-0 in the second half and lost 28-14 at the New Meadowlands Stadium.

Rex: 'Not even close' Belichick best in game

FOXBORO -- Jets coach Rex Ryan admitted this week that he came to the Jets to kick the rear end of Bill Belichick and the Patriots but on Thursday he said Belichick is "the best coach in football, and it's not even close." 

 

"There are very few coaches that I steal from but Bill Belichick is one of them," Ryan said during Thursday's conference call with the New England media. "So creative in what he does coverage-wise, how he looks at things, puts traps out there. The guy is an amazing coach. That's a guy I will study. Each week I'll just pop their tape on and see what he's doing because he is creative, smart.

 

"The two that I would look at are obviously, Belichick number one and Pittsburgh... Dick LeBeau." Ryan said. 

 

But then Ryan said as much as respects Belichick, he roots just as hard against him. "When I got the job, I cheered against them. I...
