To the Devils for a 7th...

Meh - good luck to him. He blew foul chunks in Phoenix. At least we got a 7th rounder for him!

This is weak..rather he tried to get a prospect with Raffi style..A large checking winger..Not hard to find, but at least someone who could attend training camp a 7th round draft pick will be 2-3 years away from that, (if ever)
BTW..what a waste of time that ceremony was eh

Hopefully that means they take out the televised snippet that focuses on his hat trick from oh so looong ago.

Meh.

He's an accomplished warrior... but he certainly never was able to fill the Wizard's shoes while in the desert. Best of luck, Sully. I don't think we'll miss you all that much, to be honest.

Nope. It was pretty obvious right after the opening night puck drop that Sullivan wasn't going to be a factor. Too soft without the puck, hence less ice time.
Getting a 7th rounder a year from now is a statement trade - 'please, take him off our hands.'
The trade market was as bizarre as I have ever seen it this year. Getting a third rounder for Torres was a triumph while one should think that Sullivan could have landed us a similar deal. Alas. That pick will be packaged with something else down the road for hopefully a decent player.
I am blown away that we got SOMETHING for Lombardi who was a waste of ice time, AFAIAC. McMillan could still develop into a bottom six NHLer. At least we got a warm body who can fill a vacant spot in Portland.
