No problem with this move as it's a bandaid/stopgap/plug move for the next month, even though this team is pretty old in a number of positions as is. I expect Sullivan to see some time on the PP, maybe get some more 5v5 time with better players, but he'll mostly be protected in those situations anyway by Deboer I imagine.
Sure, Sullivan is close to being pretty much done, but if it helps get guys like Gionta and Sestito and even Kostopolous off the ice in key situations if not altogether and forever, I am all for it.
The Devils even as they are, will be in a dogfight the rest of the way, and personally, I see them having to fight for the 8 spot and probably missing out.
If the Devils were going to make significant changes, it was always going to have to wait until this summer, when I expect they will indeed happen.
