Christopher Gibson TTM Success

Mailed:  12/31/2014
Received:  5/8/2015
Days:  128
c/o: Toronto Marlies

Gibson was born in Finland and played his junior hockey in Chicoutimi.  He had a very good regular season with the Marlies going 24-17-3.  Maybe the Leafs will look to bring him up next season.

David Legwand TTM Success

Mailed:  1/9/2015
Received:  5/3/2015
Days:  114
c/o: Ottawa Senators

I actually only mailed him the jersey card, so he included the extra card for me.  The Senators used him mostly as a 4th line guy this year, and only dressed him for 3 of the payoff games.  He has carved out a decent career and he should have a few more years left for a team that needs some leadership.  Maybe Edmonton should take note.

Lance Bouma TTM Success

Mailed:  1/22/2015
Received:  4/30/2015
Days:  98
c/o: Calgary Flames

Lance had a nice little breakout year with the Flames this year.  34 points in 78 games before going down with an injury late in the season.  He hasn't made it back for the playoffs yet, and the Flames could use him.

Viktor Fasth TTM Success

Mailed:  12/2/2014
Received:  4/27/2015
Days:  146
c/o: Edmonton Oilers

Oilers' players usually return their TTM stuff after the season ends.  Viktor's numbers were down right bad this season, but whose wasn't for the Oilers?  The have Connor McDavid coming next year, so maybe they will be an instant contender.  There is an awful lot of young talent on that team so they are bound to start clicking soon.
