the other thing this underscores, in my mind at least, is that Sullivan is the heart of this team. Timonen wears the C, but Sullivan might be the only leader that team has - too bad he was unavailable again.
Couldn't agree more. Forsberg looked like he cared more than anyone on the team. I certainly didn't see that fire out of Kariya, Arnott, or Timonen (is that guy really our captain).

Sullivan being gone hurt us so bad. Our slide started when he got hurt. Towards the end of the season we had no heart and no momentum. Half the points we picked up came in overtime wins or losses. We ceased to be a dominant team. I truly hope Sully can make a full recovery and come back to us 100%. I doubt it though...he's really taken a beating the last couple of years.
