Bob Gainey-Size and strength down the middle
Michel Therrien-a safety net
PJ Stock-An English/French dictionary
Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens et al-lie detector tests
Bud Selig-a pink slip
Washington Nationals-a fire; without the sale
Donald Fehr-Bah, humbug!
Michael Vick- a cell full of rabid rottweilers
Bill Belichik-a '72 Dolphins dartboard
Anthony Calvillo-a healthy family
Jim Popp-a Jack Todd whoopi cushion
Jack Todd-empathy, heart, soul & a baby seat in Popp's hummer
The Green Room-an Open for Business sign
Hurley's, Irish Embassy, Ye Olde Orchard, McKibbin's, Champs & Vargas-a very very Green Christmas
And from a very creative listener:
The following are a few of the gifts santa plans to hand to the HABS:

Andrei Markov: "Searching for Bobby Orr" by Steven Brunt.
Mike Komisarek: Darcy Tucker with his head down.

Tom Kostopoulos: A weekend with Bob Probert.
Andrei Kostitsyn: An invitation to Paul Maurice's house.
Maxim Lapierre: A double wide "tempo" for his Hummer. (St-Leonard style).
Sergei Kostitsyn: A fake ID card.
Saku Koivu: Subscription to the Journal de Montreal.
Patrice Brisebois: Already got his present... (Christmas was in July for Pat this year!)
Carey Price: 2 cases of REDBULL!
Guy Carbonneau: A perpetual road trip.
Doug Jarvis: A day off. (FINALLY!)
