Jeff Finger TTM Success

c/o: Toronto Marlies

Jeff has had 10 points in 31 games this season with the Marlies.  Jeff signed a massive contract with the Leafs in 2008, and they didn't feel they were getting the value, so they waived him and sent him to the AHL.  His contract expires at the end of this season, so I imagine he will be able to jump on with another NHL or AHL team and hopefully get a shot to get back in the bigs.

Chris Butler TTM Success

WOW!  Its been over a month since I received something back from a player.  Chris signed both cards in the perfect spots in black sharpie.  And back in only 19 days!  The Flames are on the outside looking in on a playoff spot right now, but its within striking distance.  He has had a decent season with the Flames, with 13 points in 60 games thus far.
