Still... each player will be assigned to a team two days prior to ASG... Until then there is a 50/50 chance of buying a player jersey with the correct color. How are they to make and stock players jerseys? Rhetorical question... unless somebody has the correct answer. I can't even guess what they will do for jersey sales.

The thing is specialty jersey sales are such money makers... and many fans enjoy it and spend much money on them... I just feel that this is great revenue lost to NHL?NHLPA... and has to have at least a small effect on the Cap -- granted, very small in the grand scheme of things... but a negative effect just the same.




As for Team Crosby... My hope is the players go the route I believe to be the best and honorable one; rather than go the man-crush way fans would, players should honor the long-standing players who have served the NHL well over a long period of time... the veteran players who may not have the marque name of a Crosby, OV, or Stamkos... Just dreaming though. sigh.
