A Jackets X-mas wish list yule love!

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Lord Stanley soon would be there;
The players were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of.....

Agnew - a powerplay
Beech - a permanent home in Columbus
Boll - a pair of golden gloves
Brassard - a chance in the big show (and a break from freak injuries)
Brule - one way ticket on the Polar Express, destination: Syracuse
Chimera - a new break-away move
Davidge - some uppers
Day - a trucker hat the says "Thank you Jim Day"
Fedorov - a time machine
Foote - to actually deflect a shot in the opposing team's goal instead of his own
Fritsche - some sparkplugs in his stocking
Gare - a permanent power outage to the illustrator
Glencross - twelve goals after x-mas
Hainsey - a breakout pass
Hejda - a sparkling new contract
Hitchcock - miniature replica 1873 Napoleon field gun cannon tree topper (..and some consistancy from his team)
