Alexander Edler TTM Success

Mailed:  2/4/2014
Received:  1/16/2015
Days:  346
c/o: Vancouver Canucks

It was just shy of a year to get this one back.  The Canucks continue to be very TTM friendly.  Overall, I have gotten 76% of my cards back from them, but I also expect to get some of the more recent ones back, so that number may climb.  Alex is having a very good year with 15 points so far.  The Canucks are surprising everyone this year by contending for a playoff position.  Picking up Ryan Miller has helped them immensely, but there are lots of good role players on that team as well.

David Desharnais TTM Success

Mailed:  11/10/2014
Received:  12/23/2014
Days:  43
c/o: Montreal Canadiens

I got Davey back when he was with the Bulldogs, but he is one of my favourite players on the Habs, so when I pulled this jersey card, I decided to take another shot at getting him through the mail.  He has 20 points so far this year, but he has been broken up from Pacioretty for the last while.  I am not sure that I like that, however, Gallagher and Galchenyuk need more prime time minutes, and so far, that mixture is working really well.  Chucky has been on fire since moving up to the first line.  The Habs struggle a bit to find scoring at times, and rely heavily on Price and the defence corps.

c/o: Toronto Maple Leafs

It was a little over a year to get this one back.  I have a massive collection of his cards.  He is from Kingston, so I have always followed him through his career.  He is now playing with the Hurricanes and has 5 points so far this year.

Davis Drewiske TTM Success

Mailed:  10/24/2014
Received:  12/15/2014
Days:  52
c/o: Hamilton Bulldogs

Davis played 9 games for the Habs last year and has spent the whole season with the Bulldogs so far.  He has 9 points in 30 games to this point.  He is a gritty player that isn't afraid to get into the corners.

Scott Kosmachuk TTM Success

Mailed:  10/24/2014
Received:  11/25/2014
Days:  32
c/o: St. John's Ice Caps

Scott had an unreal season last year with the Guelph Storm.  He had 101 points in 68 games and added another 28 points in 20 games in the playoffs.  In his first season as a pro, he has 5 points in 20 games with the Jets' farm affiliate.  He signed these in ball point pen, and the one, hardly shows up.

Jonas Hiller TTM Success

Mailed:  10/15/2014
Received:  11/20/2014
Days:  36
c/o: Calgary Flames

The Swiss native is having a pretty good season so far in Calgary.  Nobody really expects the Flames to do much this year, but they are defying the odds right now.  Hiller had some great years in Anaheim, but was chastized for not coming through in the playoffs.  I would love to know where or how he continues to get his old school KOHO goalie pads though, as KOHO was out of business before the new regulations for smaller equipment took place.
