Bout' time I got something back. I've been on a drought or the past couple weeks so it's good to see I got something. This one took like 3 months and he signed 1/1 through the Tampa Bay Lightning. He also sent a letter thanking me for my request and my letter.

Great Skate: August 2010

Ever year, Great Skate, a hockey equipment store in Amherst, New York has a big summer sale. One of the features every year is they have a meet and greet with stars of the NHL. Last year's were Patrick Kane (which I couldn't go to), Zach Parise and Brian Gionta. There is no charge for the signings and it is open to the public. The lines can be a little long but it's defiantly worth it! I've been going to these for a couple years so I'll show you some of my stuff from years past.

RIP Rico

I just heard the sad news today that former Sabre and member of the French Connection Rick Martin has passed away today in a car accident in Buffalo, New York. Martin was one of the best Sabres players of all time and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. I had the opportunity to meet him several times in person and I was also at the game where he made his last public appearance when he skated out on the ice with Gilbert and Rene. He will truly be missed.

Kris Versteeg TTM

Received 3/10/11
I did not expect to get this one back so quickly! I sent this one to him the day after I heard he was traded to the Flyers. Versteeg has been playing great since he got traded from the Leafs. This one took about three weeks and I sent it to the Flyers. He signed 1/1.

Dale Hawerchuk TTM

I've been waiting for this for a while! I picked up the 8x10 like 5 years ago when I went to the Hockey Hall of Fame. It was pretty weird because that was the only Sabres photo in there, no Gilbert or Lafontaine! Anyway, The 8x10 turned out great! Nice to see he signed with the Blue Sharpie I sent him too! This took about 4 months and he signed 2/2 through the Barrie Colts. I also got 2 cards from Joe Thornton today which I gave to my brother. They took like a year because I sent them to the Sharks.
