The Hot Top on Prince Edward Island
From the faraway Canadian province of Prince Edward Island, easily accessible from New Brunswick via the nine-mile-long Confederation Bridge, comes news that Dallas Stars jerseys are hot sellers. Specifically, it's the No. 91 jersey of the Stars' new center, P.E.I. native Brad Richards, moving off shelves: "In the past with Dallas, it wasn't a very good seller," says the guy who owns this sporting-goods joint. "There wasn't too many fans around, but now for sure we have people in every day looking for it. So he makes quite an impact when he switches teams." Odd, though -- can't even find one on the Stars' own Web shoppe. --Robert Wilonsky
