Sullivan's comeback still unsure


As per Nashville City Paper:

Predators' GM David Poile has chosen to not be overly pessimistic or overly optimistic about the status of forward Steve Sullivan.

“He has been to the doctor,” Poile said. “He is working with his therapist. There has unfortunately not been a lot of change.”

Sullivan has not played in an NHL game since February of 2007. He is already back in Nashville for the season in order for his children to start school this week.

“He remains guardedly optimistic that he will be in camp and be ready for the season. It is a long shot right now.”

My take: Don't bet on Sullivan's return this season as it's been more than 18 months since he last played an NHL game. However, The Preds would certainly welcome him back in their line-up, especially after the Radulov saga.

It is going to be a tough season for the Predators, without Sullivan and Radulov. I wonder who is going to play on the first two lines now...

They have Arnott, Erat, Dumont and Legwand who are top 6 forwards, that's about it... On defence they have more depth with Weber, Hamhuis, Zanon, DeVries, Klein, Suter and Koistinen. It would make sense to trade a D for a forward!
