Daymond Langkow TTM Success

I sent 2 cards to Daymond Langkow c/o the Calgary Flames on 11/24/2009 and received 2/2 back on 12/16/2009.  27 days is awesome from such a great player.  Once again, the Calgary Flames prove to be the classiest team TTM in Canada at least.
Daymond has been pretty much a pillar of consistency throughout his career.  He has always played around or over 70 games in each season and is always near a point per game.  He has 20 points so far this year for the slow start Flames.  That number is sure to go up as the Flames have been on fire lately.

Mikael Backlund TTM Success

I sent 2 cards to Mikael Backlund c/o the Abbotsford Heat, on 11/24/2009.  I received them both back signed on 12/11/2009.  17 days returned for this up coming star.  Mikael was amazing at the World Jr. Championships for the last 2 years.  I have no doubt that he will become a great NHL player in the next couple of years.  He signed both cards in silver sharpie which shows up awesome!

I wrote Mike Keane c/o the Manitoba Moose on 11/10/2009.  I received my 3 cards back on 12/08/2009 unsigned.  No letter, or anything.  Pretty disappointing.  He was at Feb Fest in Kingston a few years ago and I missed out on getting him there.  I have always been a big fan of his since I am a HUGE Habs fan and the 1993 Stanley Cup Playoffs are my favorite of all time.  I now remove Mike Keane from my list of ex-habs that I like.

Ben Maxwell TTM Update

I mailed 2 cards to Ben Maxwell c/o the Hamilton Bulldogs on 11/10/2009.  I received 2/2 signed on 12/03/2009.  23 days is an awesome return.  Ben has 13 points with the Dogs this year so far.  I have been buying up his rookie cards since last year, so this is a nice pair of cards to add.  Hopefully he gets called up to the big club at some point this year.
