With the All Star Game in Atlanta, many former players are descending on the area. And of course, quite a few former players live in the area, mostly former Atlanta Flames/Thrashers.
One player living in the area surprised me was John Cullen, who is living in Newnan, Georgia, near Atlanta. The Newnan Times-Herald has a real nice article on Cullen, his battle with cancer, his following the family footsteps from hockey to auto sales and his life after hockey.
