By the time you read this, I should be touching down at YYZ, after a long and exciting three days in Calgary. Before hopping the midnight flight out of Calgary, I rounded up some reads on the 2011 Heritage Classic. I had the opportunity to meet and briefly chat with several of these individuals with a great insight into their daily routine covering the NHL.
