Nice heart-warming Penguins story from the Trib this Christmas Day:
"We are pretty fortunate in our lives with what we have," said Gill, who wasn't surprised teammates donated time and more than $6,000 in gifts for the sick children and their less-fortunate families. "It's a time of year when everybody is having a good time. You're supposed to be outside having fun, talking about Santa -- and some kids are stuck in a hospital, some with very serious illnesses.
Hitting it big, Fleury said, provided him the financial means to make his parents proud.
"They never had a lot of money, so every day that I get to do this it really is like a dream," he said. "Away from the rink, though, you hear about people suffering, and it's tough for us because we don't really know what it's like. During the season, we're at the rink, and when we're not, we're at home trying to relax.
"Right now, a lot of people can't relax. It's hard for people. They don't have jobs. They are worried about things we don't have to worry about because we make a lot of money.
"My job as a player is to help the Penguins win hockey games, but I think our job as people is to help each other through these times. Hockey players have a lot to give, not just money. We should. Look at what's happening to people everywhere, and it's Christmas -- this is when we should give back."
