Dion Phaneuf TTM Success

I wrote to Dion back in 2009 when he was with the Calgary Flames.  The Flames intercepted all mail to Dion, Iginla and Kipper back then so all I got back was a team issued card signed.  I have met him a couple of times and he has always signed for everyone.  He is currently with the Ottawa Senators, but I think he may not be for long, as they were not happy when he didn't waive his no movement clause to be exposed in the expansion draft.

So this one took a while.  Michael is now with the Calgary Flames, and just finished the playoffs after getting ousted in the 1st round.  He has been a consistent scorer over his career so far at around 1 point every 2 games.

Brendan Gallagher TTM Success

21 days for Brendan Gallagher is insane fast!  He has had a rough time setting up in his office.  2 times in the last 2 seasons, he has broken a hand from a howitzer from the point.  He keeps going back there though!  The Habs need him to be good and healthy if they are going to make a run in the playoffs.

Ryan Miller TTM Success

Mailed:  10/16/2014
Received:  4/19/2016
Days:  561
c/o: Vancouver Canucks

Ryan Miller was very good on a very terrible Canucks team this year.  He had a .916 save percentage while facing among the highest shot per game totals in the league.  He has never really had a great defence palying in front of him, so it would be cool to see how well he would play on a stronger team.

Jacob De La Rose TTM Success

Mailed:  3/21/2016
Received:  4/12/2016
Days:  22
c/o: Montreal Canadiens

Jacob is not really an offensive threat.  He will however, shut down the opposing team's best players and kill penalties.  

Josh Morrissey TTM Success

Mailed:  12/23/2015
Received:  4/12/2016
Days:  111
c/o: Manitoba Moose

Josh Morrissey was an awesome defenceman on the 2015 Canadian World Junior team that won Gold.  He made the jump to pro this year with the Manitoba Moose, the farm affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets.  He had 22 points for them this year, and even got a call up for 1 game with the Jets.
