**Just fyi, we have NO spots open for the fantasy hockey so we're sorry about that. If we made a promise to you, we will do our best to make sure that we can honor it.

And EJ Hradek has a list of other players that made a great impression at the Player Media Tour.

The St. Louis Blues tabbed David Backes as their new wearer of the 'C'.
