World's Oldest Stick Sells For One Cullimore

The "world's oldest hockey stick," which dates back to approximately 1852 (Chris Chelios's second year in the League), sold at auction this week for $1.9 million. By way of apples-to-oranges comparison, here's a list of NHLers who will make exactly $1.9 million base salary this year along with their stats so far in 2006-07:
  • David Aebischer (7-5-2, 2.96 GAA, .908 SV%)
  • Jassen Cullimore (1 G, 4 A, even)
  • Mike Johnson (7 G, 7 A, +9)
  • Ryan Kesler (4 G, 5 A, -4)
  • Jaroslav Modry (1 G, 5 A, +11)
  • Vaclav Prospal (3 G, 18 A, -14)
  • Robyn Regehr (0 G, 10 A, +10)
  • Mike Ribeiro (6 G, 16 A, +7)
  • Michal Rozsival (4 G, 15 A, +7)
  • Cory Sarich (0 G, 6 A, +2)
  • Lubmoir Visnovsky (8 G, 18 A, -7)
I'll take one Visnovsky and a CCM Vector 10.0. You can keep the old twig.

Damn. This article says the stick went for $2.2 million, or one Tim Connolly, Frankie Kaberle, Brenden Morrow, Michael Ryder, Jarret Stoll or David Vyborny.
