Given the lockout shortened NHL season, our hounding adventures are limited to Eastern Conference teams. Unfortunately, for a number of reasons, we won't be able to hound every team that travels to Hockey Bay. Fortunately, though, there are a couple of teams that we'll be able to hound twice. The first team is my hometown Buffalo Sabres.
While the first trip this season, which netted 24 autographs, was a solo effort by yours truly, our most recent adventure for the Blue and Gold, which took place during Colin's spring break, was a tag-team effort. Our numbers reflect that, as we added 66 autographs -- the most so far this season -- to the collection.
Colin, continuing a recent trend, worked one of his computer wallpaper team sheets (shown above), racking up an impressive 28 autographs, adding every player and coach who made the trip.
Still, it was a solid number of cards that made our day. Besides Ryan Miller and Jason Pominville (since traded away), these Buffalo players also signed cards for us:
Top row: Jonas Enroth, Nathan Gerbe and Cody Hodgson;
Middle row: Tyler Myers, Steve Ott and Robyn Regehr; and
Bottom row: John Scott, Drew Stafford and Thomas Vanek.
Four Sabres players also signed four cards each:
Christian Ehrhoff, top, and Tyler Ennis; and
Ville Leino, top, and Jordan Leopold.
