If memory serves, the last guy picked in my gym class in No. 3 School in the early 1960s never received $20,000 to donate to his favorite charity and a new bike.
But the fabulous NHL -- Motto: No Star Left Behind -- was only too happy to assuage the last man standing. I'm OK and even You're OK, Phil Kessel, the Toronto Maple Leafs winger who was given the money and a 2011 Honda CR-Z.
Nice ride. In Toronto, they say the trade-in value is two first-round draft choices.
