Jerome Samson TTM Success

Mailed:  01/10/2014
Received:  1/24/2014
Days:  14
c/o: St. John's Ice Caps

Jerome is having a great season with the Ice Caps so far.  He has 26 points in 35 games.  I wouldn't be surprised if the Jets call him up at some point.  He went undrafted after his junior hockey was finished, but managed to get on with the Albany River Rats of the AHL.  He has also played 46 games with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Raphael Diaz TTM Success

Mailed:  9/22/2013
Received:  1/14/2014
Days:  114
c/o: Montreal Canadiens

Raphael was just named to the Swiss national team for the 2014 Olympics.  He is a good defenceman with above average offensive skills on a team that is very loaded with defence right now.  He has been a healthy scratch a few times lately due to Doug Murray and Alexei Emelin coming back from injury.  I could see the Habs moving one or two of their surplus d-men by the time the deadline comes around.  They need some scoring and size up front.
