For all of the joy and wonder that was last night's ceremony, I have to admit some disappointment.
How is it that the current players didn't give a gift? The (so-called) captains skated the No. 9 banner over and hooked it up so it could head to the rafters, but that was the only contribution that the current team made. That's it.
Are they so concerned with the current recession (of which they have virtually no chance of being laid off from, even though several deserve to be)? At the very, very least, how could they not pass a hat around and make a contribution to the Garden of Dreams in Adam's name? Is it because every couple of weeks one or two of them are called upon by the team's PR firm to take part in a coat drive or visit a hospital or something so they feel that that is enough of a contribution?
Adam Graves has class, it's time the current players show some.
