Truth be told, sports leagues are really starting to grasp at straws when it comes to finding new revenue streams. Take, for example, the folks over at NHL auctions. Right now, they're selling what could be a fans' dream (albeit an odd one) -- a spot in the Vancouver Canucks' team photo.
Online auctions in general are crazy things. One day you can buy Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona's used chewing tobacco (it was from the World Series, you see), the next it's a urinal signed by the Chicago Cubs.
Personally, I see off-beat online sports auctions as the next big thing. So, to help our friends over at NHL auctions, here are a few things that they should consider selling... Feel free to add your own in the comments.
