Last season, Colin took matters into his own hands, drawing his team sheets, rather than having me create them on a computer, to rack up more than 300 autographs on 22 sheets.
This season, though, he started using computer-generated versions, including this one Thursday to snag a dozen autographs from the New Jersey Devils. To me, they just don't have the same feel. There's something about a hand-drawn sheet, especially by a child, that is much more memorable -- for all parties involved.
Going forward, he'll return to making his team sheets.
As for the Devils, here's who signed, from left: David Clarkson, Tommy Albelin, Colin White, Travis Zajac, Chris Terreri, Bryce Salvador, Rob Niedermayer, Rod Pelley, Mike Mottau, Jamie Langenbrunner, Mario Tremblay and Dainius Zubrus.
That empty spot in the middle? There is a watermarked Devils logo that we can see, but apparently escaped our scanner's optics. Yet another reason, I'd say, to go back to hand-drawn sheets.
