Another Glossary For KK Readers

Geez, I need to get a glossary.  Does everyone have one but me?

At least Erin has a much shorter version than Abel to Yzerman!

In case you missed it yesterday, Erin Nicks along with Patrick Williams will be filing reports for KK from the 2008 NHL Draft in Ottawa.  Look for more on this in the next few days.
