It's not going to happen, but it's an interesting thought.
If we can get him at 6 mil, I'd do it and say goodbye to Sully in a heartbeat. While losing Sullivan would be bad, we have more than capable wingers ready to fill the void.
Erat - Thornton - Walker
Hartnell - Legwand - XXX
OOO - Johnson - Hall
Tootoo - III - Hordichuk
I think XXX could be filled by a player like Upshall (especially after reading McKeen's last report on Upshall) or Shishkanov. I think OOO could be filled by a player like Upshall, Orszagh, or Pivko. And it's anyone's guess who III would be.
