    Summary

    Making it through the draft is just the beginning.

    Kent and Jack are on different teams at opposite ends of the continent. They're living up to huge expectations. They're not supposed to show pain. And not everything they do to get by is precisely healthy.

    Fortunately, they're not totally alone.

    Summary

    (The past rears its ugly head and Sidney Crosby can’t accept that it’s not his fault.)

    There’s a note in the envelope, typed. I have the negatives. There’s more where this came from.

    Sid’s heart sinks. He flips the paper, checks the backside, but it’s no use: there’s nothing else written on it, no demands, no details. This isn’t blackmail — at least not yet. It could be a threat. It has to be some kind of mind game, and it’s working. More where this came from? Sid considers for a moment what else they could have pictures of, then summarily shuts the lid on that line of thought. It’s too much for him to process.
