Steve Sullivan to miss Game 4 with lower-body injury; who should replace him?

After Steve Sullivan sustained a lower-body injury during Game 3 of the Nashville Predators' semifinal series with the Vancovuer Canucks, David Boclair of the Nashville City Paper reports that he will be out of the lineup for Game 4

The Nashville Predators coach said Wednesday that veteran left wing Steve Sullivan will miss Game 4 of his team's Western Conference semifinal series with the Vancouver Canucks (7:30 p.m., Bridgestone Arena) because of a lower body injury sustained in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime defeat.    

Barry Trotz has two options available to him, or perhaps three depending upon Cal O`Reilly's health. J.P. Dumont and Colin Wilson each played a considerable amount in the regular season, and Wilson in particular made an impact on the roster on the offensive end of the ice. 

Dumont played the final two games of the Anaheim series, recording one assist, but it sounds as if Trotz is leaning more towards utilizing Wilson, a topic which we delved into in detail a few days ago. Via Boclair: 

"[Wilson] is ready," Trotz said. "... I feel he's ready for the series now. ... His play at the end of the year wasn't where I expected it to be. He didn't start the first series and no one allowed him to get into the first series because everyone played pretty well.    

There's much more in the article, which I recommend you check out, but my question for you is this: with Sullivan out of the lineup, who should Barry Trotz insert - Colin Wilson or J.P. Dumont?
