James Van Riemsdyk TTM Success

c/o: Toronto Maple Leafs

I got this one back just shy of 2 years.  JVR has been great for an awful Toronto team.  He has 43 points this season, and that is with the Leafs virtually scoring no goals since January 1st.  It sounds like the Leafs' management are about to blow up the team, but I think they will build around JVR and hope for a good draft pick this year.

"Ticker" has done an awesome job in Montreal backing up Carey Price.  He came in last season in the playoffs after Kreider took out Carey Price in game 1 of the semi finals against the Rangers.  He has won everywhere he has played so far, so hopefully the Habs can give him a cup ring this year too!

Sam Reinhart TTM Success

Mailed:  1/13/2015

Days:  20
c/o: Kootenay Ice

20 days for Sam Reinhart is awesome!  Sam was pivotal for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships.  He had a great tournament and proved why he is an elite prospect in the Sabres' system.  He will be a full timer there next year, as the Sabres chose to send him back to junior before the 10 game mark so they didn't burn a year of his rookie contract and free agency status.  If they end up winning the McDavid lottery, they could be very dangerous in a couple of years.  These 2 guys playing together would be lethal!  I am extremely happy to add this one to my collection.

Sean Monahan TTM Success

c/o: Calgary Flames

Sean had a pretty good rookie season with the Flames last year and looks to be building on that success this season.  He has 28 points in 45 games so far.

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

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.

Jay McClement TTM Success

Mailed:  11/26/2013

Days:  391
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.
