Sullivan's Second Surgery

Steve Sullivan, the Nashville Predators' most dynamic scoring threat the last two seasons, is projected to be out for another three months after having a second operation on his back today, as reported by the Tennessean's John Glennon.
 
Earlier it had been reported that he might not be ready for the start of training camp, but this latest news deals a blow to the Predators early-season efforts, and really puts the pressure on younger players like Martin Erat and Alexander Radulov to carry the offensive load until Sully returns to action.  Given the improving competition within the Central Division, the Predators need every point they can muster during the first half.
