Is that a list of players drafted or confirmed? not to doubt what you say but McCabe for example said he's going on vacation and may join that league later. Not sure if all the players drafted will actually play.
How can McCabe afford to take a holiday after all the *****ing and moaning about how he needed all the NHL money he could get. You'd think he'd be doing puck tricks in the mall to raise money.
This is a gimmick, but it's not like this is something that is expecting a large TV deal and everything else the XFL was. The XFL was something that was counting on being around at least 2 years. The XFL had huge hype built into it. The only thing this OSHL has that is it the same as the XFL is that it is a gimmick.
