Low end Victory hit the shelves in 2006 with a 230 card set and Sidney Crosby on the cover. Rookie subset feature on cards 201-230.

216 - Michel Ouellet - played four seasons in the NHL before spending remainder of his career in the overseas/minors
128 - Trent Hunter
166 - Jonathan Cheechoo - after career year (56 goals) his production fell quickly before spending remainder of his career in the minors and Russia's KHL.
18 - Brad Stuart

Victory have addition 100 cards in the set. Cards 231-330 came out of 2006-07 Upper Deck Series 2 packs.

Man... Sharks fans will forever remember Cheechoo. Thornton was setting him up for everything that season. Good times.

Back to back Sabres! I never liked the red heavy jerseys, but preferred their crossed sabres logo over the black uniform's buffalo head.
