    Default Healthy Scratch Steve Sullivan... has me worried

    I really don't expect any insight, but thought I'd ask.

    I have Sullivan on my DobberEntry league team.
    That league is a "weekly roster set" and I need to make a decision by tonight (Thurs).

    So, by end of day I have to decide whether to roster Sullivan.
    Last night he was the dreaded "healthy scratch".

    I'm worried because (looking at RTSS reports), it appears he was yanked off the Coyotes top line in a 4-0 WIN (a win!) vs. Nashville.
    Both Lauri Korpikoski & Nick Johnson took a few turns on that top line in the 3rd with N.Johnson scoring a goal in limited time.

    Last night, Sullivan was the healthy scratch and Korpikoski got the LW1 spot aside Vermette & Doan.

    Anybody catch the game?
    I figure maybe some Oilers fans may have caught some insight during the game!?!?

    Options for next week (Need to pick THREE of FIVE):
    Sullivan, Steve (PHX) - 4 games
    Korpikoski, Lauri (PHX) - 4 games
    Dorsett, Derek (CBJ) - 3 games
    Clifford, Kyle (LA) - 3 games
    Martin, Matt (NYI) - 3 games

    I watched the beginning of the game, and the announcers reported him as having an injury (hence why he wasn't in the lineup). However, neither of them knew what the injury was or the extent that Sullivan would be out.
    Maybe wait for more information of his injury, before bailing completely?

    I think it's possible that they are hiding an injury or that there are no reporters in Phoenix to ask. He does have a long history of back problems so you never know.

    Phoenix played without five regulars including leading scorer Steve Sullivan (lower-body injury).

    Ah - thanks guys.
    I guess I'll be hawking the Steve Sullivan reports all day.

    Hopefully that was the reason he got yanked.
    He did play a spot shift in that 3rd period against Nashville.
    I'm now wondering if it was a "I might be OK, let me give it a go for a shift".
