Penguins sign F Steve Sullivan

The Pens added some scoring punch today with the addition of Steve Sullivan from Nashville for one year at $1.5 million.

Sullivan has had some injury issues the past few seasons, and he didn't play much in the second half of the season last year.

The Pens are giving Sullivan the chance to show he can be a healthy, productive player in the NHL for a few more seasons.

Sullivan is giving the Pens some proven scoring punch, especially on the power play.

I'm excited about this move from the power play perspective. If Sullivan can stay healthy, he has the chance to really elevate the Pens with the man-advantage. He's certainly one of the smallest players (listed at 5'8") and he's not physical, but he still manages to be a positive on the plus / minus and contribute on the score sheet.
