We all knew the owners were going to send Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs to the players/owners meeting tomorrow. The guy gives me a rash; hardest of the hardliners. At least the owners from the Jets, Flames and Lightning will bring a little perspective.
But why...Why in the world are the players sending Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews? Seriously, why have the meeting at all if these two ar...

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