I mailed Patrick Roy, c/o the Quebec Remparts on 04/03/2009. I received the attached response on 06/08/2009. I really wanted to get my 8x10 of him hoisting the cup in 1993 to put with my Roy shrine! He sent me back a letter stating that he can't do mail requests and inserted a small photo with the Avalanche signed. Great that I got a signature from him though. I would love to meet him in person, but I don't know if that will ever happen. I would be more than happy to pay for an autograph to Frozen Pond if he was doing a public signing. I just don't want to pay for an autograph that I didn't witness I guess. Anyway, here is a scan of the letter and photo.

I mailed this 8x10 to Paul Coffey c/o his dealership in Ontario. I sent it on 04/03/2009 and received it back on 06/04/2009. Around 2 months for this hall of fame hockey player. I got him on a hockey card in person a few years back at Feb Fest in Kingston. I got this 8x10 for another year but the opportunity to get him again didn't happen, so I thought I would mail it. Great signature from him too. He was one of my favorite Oilers when I was a kid. Very happy with this response!

I mailed Curtis Sanford on 05/04/2009, and received back 2/2 on 06/01/2009. Great response for a goalie in the middle of the Calder Cup! Curtis kinda got the shaft this year in Vancouver. Luongo went down hurt, so Sanford became the starter. Curtis got hurt too, so the Canucks went out and traded for Labarbera from the Kings. Once Luongo came back, this left Sanford as the odd man out, so they optioned him to the Manitoba Moose in the AHL. He took this assignment and is currently backing up Cory Schneider in the Calder Cup Finals. Hopefully we will see Curtis back in the NHL next year!
