I posted on the other blog about a PWE that Doug from the Dollar Store blog sent me. The remainder of the cards in the envelope hit two of my hockey collections.
First, he sent me this years SP Game Used card of Joe Sakic.
I'm curious what the plans are for Burnaby Joe and the Avalanche organization as the free agent frenzy begins tomorrow. I'm not too sure that the Parenteau for Briere trade was a step in the right direction for the Avs, but of course I have a tendency to be wrong when criticizing trades, so don't be surprised to see that trend continue.
Colorado's big name free agent is Paul Stastny, who has been rumored to be going to the blue and white, along with a few other teams. Speaking of blue and white....
Doug also sent a couple of really nice base cards from the 2013-14 Panini Rookie Anthology set. From all the scuttlebutt I've heard recently, James Reimer's days as a Maple Leaf are numbered, with Winnipeg as the likely destination.
I almost wish I had taken the day off tomorrow to watch the going's on, but then I remember to a couple of years ago when I took July 1st off, and wound up watching all day as nothing major really took place.
One of these days I'll have to start putting a Maple Leafs want list together. It shouldn't be as difficult as the Jays list was, and it will give me a good starting point when I head to hockey shows down the road.
Thanks again Doug! I appreciate the cards very much...
thanks for reading, Robert
