The Roundup

Not everything in Toronto is about the expansion draft, Vancouver’s contract status with Goldobin and Dahlen,  Sheahan looks to avoid making history, the salary cap is expected to go up next year, and more in this week’s Nation Roundup brought to you by Violent Gentlemen.

In the Roundup we go around the Nation Network and give you some of the best articles of the last couple weeks. Every once in a while it’s good to know what other teams are doing, or maybe you find an interesting article you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
