The end for Sullivan?
Predators forward Steve Sullivan, barring a medical miracle, will miss the remainder of this season as he continues to rehabilitate from a pair of offseason back surgeries.
Sullivan recently returned from visiting a Seattle specialist, who told him that further rest and rehabilitation was the only cure for the fragmented disc in his back.
Only 33, he's facing what could be the end of his career, even after posting 158 points in 150 games as a Predators. He's been one of the most dangerous offensive players over that span, and finally had a chance to lead a contending team.
There's no doubt in my mind Nashville would be faring much better this season with him back in the lineup.
Here's hoping he can make some sort of a comeback next season.
