Ryan Smyth TTM Success

Mailed:  10/24/2011
Received:  05/29/2012
Days:  218
c/o: Edmonton Oilers

I mailed Ryan a few years ago in Edmonton as well, and got a nice return then.  I had these 2 jumbo cards sitting around and thought they would be neat to get signed.  Edmonton players all typically send out their mail after the season is over, so I may see a few more of these roll in.  Ryan has had a great career and I really hope he stays on in Edmonton.  I think the Oilers will be a playoff team this year for sure with all of that young talent.

I got to watch Alex play when he was with the Barrie Colts of the OHL.  He was a good skater back then with great skills.  Fans in Winnipeg got to see some flashes of what could be with him this year.  He had 28 points with 13 goals.
