A sweet return from Paul Kariya! Paul is one of my favorite players to have played the game. He hails from Vancouver, BC which makes it pretty neat as he was once one of the elite players in the league. He signed this Upper Deck, MVP card, which in fact wasn’t mine, but still happy for the autograph. Thanks Paul!

Dan Ellis was drafted 60th overall, picked by the Dallas Stars in the 2000 entry draft.  He made his debut in 2004 vs the LA Kings, posting a 4 – 3 win.  Dan came under hot water when he tweeted, complaining about a pay cut.  Of course, most of us wouldn’t feel bad, making an NHL salary, but Ellis felt that they deserved more because they are specialists.  Good luck trying to convince the most of us that you need more money!

The captain of the Nashville Predators, Olympic gold medalist, and NHL all-star, Shea Weber is a hulking defenseman born out of BC.  He represented Team Canada recently at the Vancouver Olympics and scored a goal that will be remembered as one that actually broke the netting!  Shea came out to greet us, and signed everything and I really love the way he signed this card.  Thanks so much Shea!
