    I believe Larry Murphy said he was in as well. That's all I know.

    I want former Pen and Cap Bryan "Bugsy" Watson to play and then switch sweaters and play for the other team after 30 minutes! (One of the great classy guys in hockey, off the ice, but also one of the greatest goons!)

    I don't care on which squad he starts, as long as he plays on both sides. Murphy can do that, too, if he wants.

    In case anyone was in doubt, Jay Caulfield announced that, "Mario is in the best shape.....!"
