New Times For The Nashville Predators

#451370058 / Since 1997, Barry Trotz had been the only head coach the city of Nashville ever knew until the end of the 2013-2014 season. He had seen 16 seasons behind the bench of a team that many thought would be an unfit market for the sport. But something had to give. The Predators missed the postseason for the second consecutive season. The last time that happened...

VIDEO: Fan Taunts Injured Blackhawks Player, Then Gets Hit In Face With Puck…Throwback

Posted to Chicago BlackhawksThis is not recent, however that doesn’t mean it isn’t awesome. This occurred back when Steve Sullivan was on the Chicago Blackhawks (’99-’04), but the video has surfaced again. Watch as this fan gets bit in the ass by the karma bug after taunting the injured player. The karma bug comes in the form of a puck to the face. This is probably one of...

Paul McCann: Sully Contemplates Hanging Them Up

As Steve Sullivan is contemplating retirement and the next move in his life, it got me to thinking about my own hat trick of memories from Steve’s time in Nashville. I remember that night like it was yesterday, my eldest son and I got to the arena early, like we normally did, got our snacks and settled into our seats in section 310… ready to get loud and welcome the...

Roger Mussa: Trade deadline day is like kissing your sister!

Follow me @NJDAdvocate If you are a Devils fan, the trade deadline day is like kissing your sister... Anti-climactic. Today we know what Uncle Lou thinks of the team. He did not want to mortgage the future for the present. He did, however, get Steve Sullivan for a 2014 seventh round pick. Quite honestly, I expected more. Or at least one more trade. Many Devils fans...

Coyotes unload 3 veteran players

The Phoenix Coyotes unloaded three veteran players from their roster for a minor leaguer and two draft picks at the trade deadline. On the surface, it looks like a team giving up on the season. The Coyotes insist the three deals were necessary moves for a team that's under the financial restraints of being run by the league for the fourth straight season. Phoenix is just two...

Sullivan celebrates his 1,000th game with a Coyotes win over Preds…

It was Steve Sullivan‘s special night. Throughout his career he’d been a late round draft pick, been put on waivers, dressed for more than his fair share of teams and even suffered a back injury that kept him off the ice for almost two full years. He went through all of that but it was all worth it because tonight, in front of the fans that loved him for seven years, Sullivan...

Names of 232 others had been called in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft before Steve Sullivan finally heard his. The New Jersey Devils called his name with two rounds and some change left in the annual event but not because he lacked skill or impressive offensive numbers. After all, he was coming off a 113-point season with the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Sullivan’s long wait...
