As I'm sure you all know that today is Trade Deadline in the NHL. Some teams made moves and some teams did nothing. My team the Buffalo Sabres made one move today getting Brad Boyes from St. Louis for a 2011 2nd Round pick! I'm real exited about this pick up! Brad is a great goal scorer and I'm sure he will help us out to make the playoffs. I got a chance to see him play this year when the Blues came to town last week. I don't think he got any points but they beat us 3-0 (which sucked!). Well anyway, I think Darcy Reiger, Lindy Ruff and probably Sabres new owner Terry Pegula did a great job today. Hopefully, this won't be another Raffi Torres situation like last year!
Alexei was a great defensemen for us in the 90's and in the 2000's. He was one of the best defensemen I've ever seen on the power play. I saw a couple successes from him on a couple of different sites and I figured I would give it a shot. Quick two turn-around too! He signed 2/2 + an index card through his home.

Shea is one of my favorite D-men in the league right now and he is one of the favorite players on the Nashville Predators. He also played great as a member of team Canada in the 2010 winter games where he took home gold. Shea signed 1/1 through the Nashville Predators in about 2 or 3 months.

Great success from the greatest Sabres player ever! I gotta thank my boy Joe at Joe's Hockey Autos for getting me this one. If you have ever seen his site, you'll know that his grandpa used to coach the Sabres, and Perreault was one of his players. Normally, Perreault charges $10 for a sig TTM, so I gave Joe my card and I didn't have to pay for it! I believe the card was sent to his home.

Great success from a veteran goalie in the NHL. Garon has played alright splitting time with Steve Mason. I went to the game where the Sabres faced the Blue Jackets at HSBC and Garon was playing (we beat them 5-0 and there was a ton of fights! Real good game!) Anyway, Garon signed 1/1 c/o Blue jackets in about a month and a half.

Marty was one of the best goaltenders in the NHL in the 200-2010 era. He is also one of the best goalies the Dallas Stars have ever seen. I would have gotten these cards signed when I went Blackhawks hounding but I had to leave when he was still on the ice. Nice of him to sign them TTM though. He signed 2/2 through the Chicago Blackhawks in about 3 1/2 months.

After Kaner came out, Mike Peca's kid asked me for a black sharpie because he wanted to get his Toews jersey signed. After Toews took a picture with him, he came over to us and signed our stuff. Then Marian Hossa came out, and he signed our stuff as well. Interesting signature and a real nice guy. I believe he had 2 goals that night.
