Nail Yakupov TTM Success

Mailed:  1/4/2016
Received:  1/30/2016
Days:  26
c/o: Edmonton Oilers

I was very surprised to get this one back so fast.  The Oilers' players usually send stuff out after the season is over.  Nail just come off of an injury, so maybe he used that time to answer mail.  His best bet is to probably get out of Edmonton.  That place seems to be where good young players go to die.  He was exciting to watch in Jr. with the Sting, so hopefully he can find that again with another club in the NHL.

Richard Panik TTM Success

Mailed:  12/7/2015
Received:  1/16/2016
Days:  35
c/o: Toronto Marlies

I watched Richard Panik play quite often when he was with the Belleville Bulls.  He has had some decent numbers in the AHL and probably deserves an NHL spot.  He had 25 points in 33 games with the Marlies before the Leafs traded him to the Chicago Blackhawks.  He hasn't played for their farm team yet, but probably will soon.  You may see him back in the NHL soon too.
