    I got reading through the Mountain Dew endorsement requirements today. Where it says "more than 100 points," "more than 60 points," etc... I was always under the impression that if a qualified CHL player got to 100 points (for example) that the team would be awarded the endorsement money... or does the player have to get to 101 points to qualify (the verbage says 'more than 100 points')?

    So my question is, are these point totals listed the number of points a player need to meet or exceed, or do they in fact have to surpass the number listed (ie. 101 points, 61 points, etc)? I know it's just one point, but that could be the difference in $1M being awarded or not awarded.

    I think we'll go with "100 points or more" as a clarification, and things like 'tied for 5th' would still qualify as top 5 in something (i.e. save percentage)

    I've got a question...and i think we addressed it a little while back, but I don;t remember. what about those handful of guys that aren'y good enough yet to be HFNHL players but are destroying the NHL as rookies (ie. Kopitar and Malkin). If they break 60 points in the NHL (which is clearly a harder league than the AHL) do they qualify for the Mountain Dew award?

    Or did we say that because they'll be ready to go next season with a great rating, that's a reward in itself?

    You got it.

    Those players represent a tremendous advantage in that they are still under the rookie cap next year (for 3 years) and represent huge value.

    Plus there are other endorsement options that reward young NHLers.
