agreed, that said I always wanted to see members of the CBJ Leadership corps participate in this thing. Be it suited up and going through the occasional drill with the group, or just in street clothes and skates out on the ice.

Let them know that the players that they someday hope to play with actually care about them and want to see how they're doing.

I think Nash did take the group to dinner one year, but I don't know, I guess I was hoping for more involvement from the players. They're the ones who will most benefit with better teammates if these kids develop properly.

I dunno, I'm not a pro athlete, maybe they would fear these kids would take their jobs.
