guys who say this crack me up. Sullivan is too small and not defensive enough for a bottom 2 line role, so he needs to be in the top 6. The only teams where he is going to be on the top 6 is on crappy teams - like Chicago. When he was put on waivers it was because NO ONE WANTED HIM - much like Nathan Dempsey. Smith picked him and dempsey and Korolev up because his team was so crappy that even these guys are an improvement. This kind of player transfer happens all the time. Sometimes you get lightning in a bottle - e.g. Sullivan who is reinvoragted on a new team - other times you get squat - most times you get squat.

Sullivan is good but has major downsides, including his size and defense - he is not good enough to play for the Leafs on a top line and not the kind of guy to fit on the bottom 2 lines.

Thanks for coming out.
