It may be only a 1 year deal, but who knows if he will want to leave anyways. He really has only gotten a brief taste of Nashville so far, and by this time next year....he could be totally enamored. Lets not forget that Walker was going to be an UFA, and we signed him to a 3 year deal......I expect something similar with SUllivan if management and him want to reup. Its that simple. Teams sign their impending UFAs all the time, so until he signs elsewhere I'm not worried. Lets look at the positives instead:

1.) We have Sullivan for another year.
2.) He is only costing us 3.6 million....hardly the amount which he would have gotten in arbitration (I'm almost certain the arbitrator would have awarded him 4 million).
3.) For only 2 second round picks......we got a 70+ point, complete player.....and not just as a rental.

Great GM work by Poile, IMO.
