It's been an outstanding 12 months for Theo Peckham. He scored an opening night assignment on the big club and played a more prominent role than expected during 10-11, and then cashed in as an rfa with a raise that nearly doubled his salary. What can Peckham's season--training camp through this past week and his contract--tell us about this fall's battle along the blue? A lot.

Happy Canada Day! There are reasons to celebrate! For such a small population, mighty Canada scores well in the important disciplines (wine, women and song) and most of us wake up today enjoying peaceful waters.
