Over at Taking One For The Team, a number of bloggers have participated in a salary-cap challenge. It’s great when Sidney Crosby costs less than a million — love those rookie contracts! Check out my team and everyone else’s, there are a few constants throughout. Advertisements


I was over at The Hockey News’ website today to see if they had the covers up for the new yearbooks.
