James Van Riemsdyk TTM Success

I got this one back just shy of 2 years.  JVR has been great for an awful Toronto team.  He has 43 points this season, and that is with the Leafs virtually scoring no goals since January 1st.  It sounds like the Leafs' management are about to blow up the team, but I think they will build around JVR and hope for a good draft pick this year.

"Ticker" has done an awesome job in Montreal backing up Carey Price.  He came in last season in the playoffs after Kreider took out Carey Price in game 1 of the semi finals against the Rangers.  He has won everywhere he has played so far, so hopefully the Habs can give him a cup ring this year too!

Sam Reinhart TTM Success

20 days for Sam Reinhart is awesome!  Sam was pivotal for Team Canada at the World Junior Championships.  He had a great tournament and proved why he is an elite prospect in the Sabres' system.  He will be a full timer there next year, as the Sabres chose to send him back to junior before the 10 game mark so they didn't burn a year of his rookie contract and free agency status.  If they end up winning the McDavid lottery, they could be very dangerous in a couple of years.  These 2 guys playing together would be lethal!  I am extremely happy to add this one to my collection.
