Alexander Edler TTM Success

c/o: Vancouver Canucks

It was just shy of a year to get this one back.  The Canucks continue to be very TTM friendly.  Overall, I have gotten 76% of my cards back from them, but I also expect to get some of the more recent ones back, so that number may climb.  Alex is having a very good year with 15 points so far.  The Canucks are surprising everyone this year by contending for a playoff position.  Picking up Ryan Miller has helped them immensely, but there are lots of good role players on that team as well.

David Desharnais TTM Success

I got Davey back when he was with the Bulldogs, but he is one of my favourite players on the Habs, so when I pulled this jersey card, I decided to take another shot at getting him through the mail.  He has 20 points so far this year, but he has been broken up from Pacioretty for the last while.  I am not sure that I like that, however, Gallagher and Galchenyuk need more prime time minutes, and so far, that mixture is working really well.  Chucky has been on fire since moving up to the first line.  The Habs struggle a bit to find scoring at times, and rely heavily on Price and the defence corps.
