Guillaume Latendresse TTM Success

Mailed:  01/25/2013
Received:  02/27/2013
Days:  33
c/o: Ottawa Senators

I actually mailed Guillaume when he was with the Habs back in 2009.  It was shortly after I mailed him, that he was traded to the Wild for Benoit Pouliot.  So, I never received my cards back.  He has been hurt most of the year so far with the Senators and has 1 assist in 6 games so far.

Zack Stortini TTM Success

Mailed:  01/17/2013
Received:  02/05/2013
Days:  19
c/o: Hamilton Bulldogs

I don't send out to the same team more than once in a month.  I guess its just a courtesy thing for me.  I screwed up this time and forgot I mailed to Desjardins 6 days earlier.  Anyway, I always like Stortini with the Oilers.  I saw him play a few times when he was with the Wolves in the OHL.    He was one tough SOB back then too!  He has 3 points and 152 PIMs this season with the Bulldogs.

Cedrick Desjardins TTM Success

Mailed:  01/11/2013
Received:  02/05/2013
Days:  25
c/o: Hamilton Bulldogs

I can't, for the life of me, figure out why Cedrick is not in the NHL.  In 2010-11, the Lightning were struggling and couldn't find a goalie.  They then brought Cedrick up for 2 games.  His stats in those 2 games, 2 wins, a 1.00 GAA, and a .968 save percentage.  They then traded his rights to the Avalanche, and he was sent to their minor league affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters.  He had a great season down there but still didn't get a call up.  So he signs with the Canadiens on a 2-way deal, knowing that Budaj and Price are both on 1 way deals, so the only chance he has at getting called up, is if one of those guys gets hurt.  Anyway, the Bulldogs are not that great this year, so he is 6-12-2 so far, but good GAA and Save percentage.  I saw him play in Hamilton a couple of years ago and he was amazing.  I thought for sure he would be the next guy to turn heads in the NHL.  Hopefully, he gets that chance again.
