Penguins Sign Steve Sullivan; 1 year, $1.5 million


The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed right wing Steve Sullivan to a one year, $1.5 million dollar contract.  After losing out on Jaromir Jagr, and watching Mike Rupp and Max Talbot sail away in free agency, the Penguins have struck.  Well, they did also sign Tyler Kennedy this morning, but the first addition is Sullivan.

Sullivan is an interesting case, he's a small player with offensive talent.  He's been ruined of late with back injuries, appearing only in 44 games last season, and he missed the entire 2007-08 season.  However, it should be noted Sullivan played all 82 games in 2009-10 and put up a respectable 17 goals and 34 assists.

Still, even at age 37 (he has a birthday later this week) Steve Sullivan can add talent and depth to the Pens.  The team needed a veteran winger with a little bit of skill and they've gotten it.  It wasn't Jagr like we thought, but this depth piece brings character, hard-work and skill that the Penguins look for in players.
