I don't see how they could've given up both 2nd's for him to just leave - does this make Walker's leaving a foregone conclusion? I don't think they would've traded for him if they couldn't handle his salary.
While I LOVE this trade, and I know this will help our offense a lot...I still have to wonder, will it really be enough to get Vokoun to stop throwing pucks at our empty net? Seriously, if we had Sullivan plus Sakic and Bertuzzi and Naslund we still would be hangin' on the edge of the playoff picture, with Vokoun basically sucking. What is it, 5 or 6 out of the last 7-8 games Vokoun has given up 3+ goals, and 4 in a few of them. This will just not cut it. Vokoun has to step up, or else we sit at home while 16 teams play for a while longer.
Congrats to you Nashville fans. You are going to love Sully. He is a heart and sould type player and never takes a shift off. Despite his size he never backs down to anyone. He is a class act on and off the ice.
He is a streaky scorer and when he gets hot he really lites em up. I hate to see him leave the Hawks but with our ownership we have learned to expect the worst.
Anyone who thinks you gave up too much will not think so once you watch him on a regular basis. Hawk fans are PISSED right now. We could care less about losing ZHamnov, but losing Sully is akiller.
Good luck to Stevie in Music City. You will be fondly remembered in Chicago!!!!!
