I'm not bragging, but.... Five of my six NHL powerball numbers have hit.

Here are the other NHLPAers: Craig Adams, David Backes, Michael Cammalleri, B.J. Crombeen, Mathieu Darche, Ron Hainse...

Ian Esplen: Who is Meeting and Why?

Follow me on twitter @IanEsplen to chat hockey, sports and life in general anytime I generally don’t follow Matt Barry’s Blog, but in his latest pile of dribble he did get me thinking a little about which players seem to be active in negotiations. Here is a salary/contract breakdown of the 18 players involved yesterday’s meeting. Sidney Crosby, 13 yr/112...
