I have to admit that I am really impressed with everyone here. Responding to sisu's challenge to raise $50 for the Saku Koivu Foundation we've managed to raise $130 so far.

In a Project Mayhem update, we are now only $26 short of our $280 goal. The cheques are in the mail and making their way to Hockey-Reference. If you still want to contribute you can send a donation via paypal to my e-mail address or an e-mail money transfer or drop me a line and suggest another way.
