Corey Locke TTM Success

Mailed:  3/11/2014
Received:  5/16/2014
Days:  66
c/o: Abbotsford Heat

Corey has bounced around quite a bit over his career.  He has only played in 9 NHL games, but has played a ton in the AHL.  He finished off this past season with the Abbotsford Heat and had 23 points in 30 games for them and added 1 more in 4 playoff games.

c/o: Edmonton Oilers

WOW.  I really never expected to get this back after over 5 years.  Better late than never though.  Sam had a really good year last year in the lockout shortened season, but didn't really carry that over to this past season.  I am not sure if the Oilers will hang onto him as they could get something decent for him.

Alexei Emelin TTM Success

Mailed:  1/22/2014
Received:  5/8/2014
Days:  106
c/o: Montreal Canadiens

Alexei is a huge hitter for the Habs.  He is having a great playoff this year, locked in a battle with Milan Lucic.  Man I hate that guy!  I really hate all of the Boston Bruins, but Lucic, Marchand and Chara are at the top of that list.  I really hope the Habs knock those bastards out of the playoffs in 2 more games.

Aaron Ekblad TTM Success

Mailed:  11/12/2013
Received:  5/2/2014
Days:  171
c/o: Barrie Colts

Aaron could very well be the 1st overall pick in this year's draft.  He had 53 points this season as a defenceman with the Colts in the OHL and added another 6 points in 9 playoff games.  He is big and quick and plays alot like Drew Doughty of the LA Kings.  This kid is going to be one to watch.  He is also one of a few players to get exceptional status and enter the OHL draft early.

Mark Stuart TTM Success

Mailed:  1/28/2014
Received:  4/30/2014
Days:  92
c/o: Winnipeg Jets

Mark is a shutdown defenceman and has carved out a nice career so far.  He had a gold at the World Jr. Championships in 2004 for USA.

Jonathan Bernier TTM Success

Mailed:  10/23/2014
Received:  4/24/2014
Days:  183
c/o: Toronto Maple Leafs

Bernier had a decent year with the Leafs, considering the swiss cheese for defence they had.  He had a .922 save percentage which is really good, but a 2.70 GAA which is below average.  I am sure the Leafs will be trading Reimer by the trade deadline, so that will take some pressure off of him I think.  If they make some moves, they could be a good team next season.  I honestly don't think they are far off right now.

Christian Thomas TTM Success

Mailed:  1/21/2014
Received:  4/24/2014
Days:  93
c/o: Hamilton Bulldogs

Christian played 2 games up with the Habs this season with no points and a -1 rating.  He had 27 points in 55 games with the Bulldogs.

T.J. Brodie TTM Success

Mailed:  3/17/2014
Received:  4/23/2014
Days:  37
c/o: Calgary Flames

T.J. had 31 points on defence for the Flames in his first real full season of NHL action.  He played the full last season that was shorted due to the lockout.  Prior to that, he had been up and down from the Abbotsford Heat.
