Sullivan isn't expected to carry the load here in Nashville.....we have plenty of other guys emerging, who are filling out our top two lines quite nicely. Each year, our offense gets stronger and stronger. To be honest with you, Kimmo and Zidlicky will be bigger keys to our offensive success than Sullivan will.....Its the way our system works. At 3.6 million, Sullivan was signed at a very cheap rate. I was afraid he would get Satan/Sykora money from the arbitrator.....and we would in turn walk away. Instead, we managed to lock him up for at least another year. For a 70+ point/complete player, with a great work ethic and leadership.....The Preds are more than happy to give up a paltry 2 second round picks. Good GM work by Poile...easily one of the best trades of last season, especially considering the impact Sullivan had upon arriving in Nashville....30 points in 24 games, helping us get out of our slump and secure the playoffs for the first time in our short history.
