Finally had the type of big return day I've been waiting for with 7 TTMs coming in.
Basil McRae 1/1 c/o business in 15 days
Nice return from the retired enforcer who is 24th all-time in penalty minutes.
Kevin Klein 1/1 c/o Predators in 27 days
Great return from the Nashville d-man. Over the past few seasons he's become a fixture on their blueline and has put up solid numbers.
Louis Leblanc 1/1 c/o Hamilton Bulldogs in 91 days
Great return from the Canadiens' 2009 1st round pick. Kinda surprised he's been down in the AHL all season as he has great speed and seemed to be a solid contributor on the bottom 6 in Montreal last season.
Robert Mayer 1/1 c/o Hamilton Bulldogs in 81 days
Nice success from the Canadiens' goaltending prospect. He set career highs across the board in the AHL last season and seems to have finally acclimated to the pros, though he has still struggled at times.
Gabriel Dumont 1/1 c/o Hamilton Bulldogs in 19 days
Nice return from another Habs' prospect. Dumont put up prolific numbers in his last year in the QMJHL but is regarded more as a defensive forward. However, he's been doing great offensively in the AHL this season with 15 goals and 15 assists through 45 games, both career highs in less games.
Nathan MacKinnon 1/1 c/o Halifax Mooseheads in 71 days
Awesome return from one of the top prospects going into the 2013 NHL Draft. So glad to get this one as it completes my trifecta of the 3 top North American prospects (MacKinnon, Drouin, Seth Jones).
Tom Wilson 1/1 c/o Plymouth Whalers in 26 days
Great return from one of the Capitals' first round picks (16th overall) in 2012. He's the type of big power forward the Caps could really use, especially if his offense continues to develop.
Also picked these up recently:

One return today from another NHL prospect:
Ryan Murray 1/1 c/o Everett Silvertips in 113 days
Awesome return from the 2nd pick of the 2012 NHL Draft and top prospect for the Blue Jackets. Not the greatest sig but I'm just glad to add him to my collection because he's gonna be a stud in Columbus very soon. Shame he's out for 6 months with an injury but I guess it gave him a chance to catch up on his mail.

Couple of hockey returns to close out the week:
Dmitry Kulikov 2/2 c/o Panthers in 24 days
Great successes from the young Florida blueliner. He was the 14th overall pick in 2009 and just keeps improving his game. He has bested his career-high point total each of his 3 years in the league.
Craig Hartsburg 1/1 c/o Blue Jackets in 22 days
Nice return from the former North Stars' defenseman and captain and current associate coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets. He was a damn good player but unfortunately had his career shortened by injuries after only 10 seasons.
Also picked this card up for cheap, former enforcer Stu "The Grim Reaper" Grimson

Now, this is rare for me but I had a couple of in-person successes today. I'm a diehard Devils fan and season ticket holder but I never seem to get any autos from the team as they're awful TTM. Well today they had a signing legitimately 5 minutes from my house with a couple of players so I had to go check it out and had a great time. Only took about an hour as well. Gotta love when a new local bar takes the initiative with this kinda stuff and I can't wait to go back for future signings as it seems there's gonna be one a month from now on.
Anton Volchenkov 8x10
Stephen Gionta 8x10
Also got a picture with both guys:

Yeah hockey players are great TTM. I was wondering -since i have a Boston Bruins stanley cup champs card signed by seguin, kelly and boychuk and i'd love to get peverley to sign it too- if you've ever gotten him TTM?
02-18-2013, 07:37 PM #588
I wouldn't risk it. He used to be automatic with the Thrashers, but I've only seen him sign once or twice since going to Boston and both took a long time. Not worth the chance.
