The Predators will receive Florida's seventh-round pick in 2012 if Sulzer re-signs with the Panthers.
Sulzer has 1 goal and 4 points in 31 games this season for the Predators, and the 26-year-old defenseman is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. A third-round pick in the 2003 Entry Draft, Sulzer has bounced between Nashville and Milwaukee of the American Hockey League for the past two seasons.
It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
