Between my daytime work schedule and a couple of fill-in recreational hockey league games later in the day, the Missus and Colin had a small window of opportunity Saturday morning to collect autographs from the Buffalo Sabres. Namely, when the players headed over to the morning skate at the St. Pete Times Forum.
After their combined efforts, in which they snagged 46 autographs, it's safe to say they delivered.
Colin, in working his Colin's Pucks project, added another three pucks, giving him seven for the week. Signing were, from left, Ryan Miller, on the U.S.A. souvenir puck, and Tyler Myers, who signed the Sabres and Kelowna Rockets pucks.
Among those signing cards were:
Top row: Patrick Lalime, Toni Lydman and Clarke MacArthur; and
Bottom row: Jason Pominville, Craig Rivet and Henrik Tallinder.
Other highlights of the morning-skate-only session:
~ Colin snagging 21 of 23 Sabres players on his team sheet;
~ Taking advantage of a deep collection of specialty set cards;
~ Having Tyler Myers sign the 2008 NHL Draft program; and
~ Adding Mike Grier to the Threads collection.
