This nearly life-size mural is on the wall at the city's Braemar Arena.Using a little bit of data and a lot of anecdotal evidence, ESPN's Greg Wyshynski set out to find the center of the American hockey universe. If his methods had yielded different results, I'm sure there would have been plenty of things to pick apart about his process.
