There are a few poster saying that SUlly to nashville is a done deal to be announced soon. Speculation is that it is for a second round pick.
The discussion is on the blackhawzone.com message board and is from a poster who is normally reliable.
Again, this is unsubstantiated so take it for what its worth.
PS, it sucks to be a Blackhawk Fan. Hopefully, they will bring Yakubov up, he belongs up here already.
I agree. I'm not a Blackhawk fan by any means, but I can definitely understand how it sucks. Cheap ownership, bad trades, poor drafting (until recently) have all contributed to make the pathetic team we call the Chicago Blackhawks.
Sullivan is one of Chicago's better players. He's got speed, skill, grit and spunk. A lot of teams would like him - I know I'd welcome him to my team (I hope Brian Burke is reading this) - and I imagine he'd fetch more than a second round pick. At least a prospect or a roster player on top of that, IMO. I could see him getting a similar return to a guy like Peter Bondra (who was rumored to be headed to Ottawa for Schastlivy and a high pick before Schastlivy got moved). If this is true (and I hope for the 'Hawks sakes that it isn't), then the Preds got themselves a pretty good player for not too much.
