Greetings!

Can anyone tell me the status of Matthew Barnaby?  We took him in the "goon"
category of our hockey pool, but my husband just noticed he was not listed
on the Sabres roster listed in the Toronto _Star_ yesterday. Is he injured?
Has he been traded?  Or did he just not make the team?

thanks--

     About two weeks ago, the local CBC affiliate here in Ottawa did a
report on Barnaby.  He is currently in a contract dispute with the
Sabres and is trying to keep in shape here in Ottawa.  If you can
believe it, Barnaby wants $1.6 million over two years from the Sabres.
With a ridiculous demand like that, the Sabres ought to let him rot -
and it seems that they are doing just that.

Ok, now you've got me curious.  How do you get points in the goon
category?  Are there points for say number of penalty minutes,
number of majors, number of suspensions, number of opposing players
taken out either due to injury or getting them involved in fights?
This may be common in hockey pools, but I have never been in one
so I really don't know.

He's a contract holdout.
