PSA: Tomorrow we will start doing the player reviews for the 2010-11 season, where you'll have the opportunity to give each Magpie a final grade. We'll do one player each day, and the posts will go up at Noon CDT. First up will be Steve Harper.

One will start the season as first choice, another will be loaned out or sold, and the third will remain as back-up. So how would you handle this?
