Today's post is on Clarke MacArthur of the Ottawa Senators. I'm a big fan of him and really hope one day he can return to the NHL and play the game that he loves. For those who don't know, Clarke has been battling some major injuries (concussions) through the last couple of years and last... Continue Reading →
From one Smith to another, we have in today's feature, CJ Smith of the Buffalo Sabres organization. He's currently playing with the Rochester Americans, where I managed to get this Young Guns card signed by him. Personally, I don't know much about CJ Smith and haven't had a great chance to watch him in the... Continue Reading →
A fantastic return from Gilbert Perreault, one of the members of the famous "French Connection" line. He was drafted 1st overall in the 1970 entry draft and admitted to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1990, 3 years after his last game in a Buffalo Sabres uniform. Thanks for the autograph Gilbert!
This was one heck of a return, a long return I mean. I'm super happy to have gotten all-star goaltender Ryan Miller's TTM return, as I haven't had the chance to get him in person. Ryan is a spectacular goaltender, who has previously played for Team USA during the 2010 Olympics. His Buffalo Sabres... Continue Reading →
Nice! A great return from Thomas Vanek, with a sweet personalization to me! I've gotten a return previously from Thomas, but I'm hoping to catch him one day when Buffalo comes into town. This will most likely be my last return from him as I won't be sending any more letters his way. For all... Continue Reading →

A skate blade had struck his throat during a hockey play, and caused him to bleed profusely. Clint now is... Continue Reading →

Thomas Vanek, currently leads the Buffalo Sabres, another team on the fence if they'll make the playoffs, in point scoring. In 72 games, he's amassed 62 points including 10 PPG. If the Sabres are going to make the post-season, they're going to need Vanek to carry them on his back. Good luck in the playoffs... Continue Reading →
May day! May day! Brad May, a former Vancouver Canuck, signed three Buffalo Sabre cards for me. Brad was a tough customer, always willing to throw down the gloves for any combatant. Brad currently works for CBC as an analyst.
