Sullivan Out Until December

In what could be the best pick-up in a mid-season waiver draft, Steve Sullivan will now be on the shelf until December after undergoing a second back surgery over the summer. Sullivan only played 57 games last season for the Predators, scoring 60 points. His betther-than a point a game average may come in handy for a team mired in the basement.

This move will also give some lucky forward a little bit more ice-time down the stretch and give the Predators almost half of Sullivan's salary to play with in this off-season, not that they actually needed it. The Predators will actually still have to sign some talent, as they still sit below the cap minimum of $34 million.
