Québec Nordiques Alumni vs. Montréal Canadiens Alumni IP

Earlier today took place a game between the Québec Nordiques Alumni and the Montréal Canadiens Alumni at the Colisée, in Québec, QC. A friend and I waited for the players to come out after the game to get autographs, but we missed several players who either didn't come out through the usual exit or directly got on their bus, which was parked inside the arena. Still, here are the cards I managed to get autographed:

On the other hand, I missed these guys: Yvan Cournoyer, Vincent Damphousse, Stéphane Richer, Yvon Lambert, Donald Audette, Stéphane Quintal, Steven Finn, André "Moose" Dupont, Richard Sévigny and others... I'm still happy with who I got overall, though! :o)

Dany Heatley TTM

Dany Heatley c/o Ottawa Senators - 790 days - 0.5/3

He returned all 3 of my cards unsigned, but he included an autographed 4" X 6" postcard. He sent everything back in an Ottawa Senators envelope instead of my self-addressed stamped envelope, either because the postcard wouldn't have fitted in my envelope or because he didn't want to go through the trouble of adding additional postage...

Québec Remparts IP

Tonight was the presentation of the 2008-09 edition of the Québec Remparts at Place Laurier in Québec, QC. There was also a free autograph signing session with the whole team afterwards. Unfortunately, there were a few players missing because they were at their NHL camps. Patrick Roy wasn't there either, as he was in Montréal for the press conference announcing the upcoming retirement of his jersey number by the Montréal Canadiens. I got the sheet that they were handing out signed by every player who was there. I also got these 2 cards autographed:

Kelsey Tessier insisted on personalizing the autograph, which is usually done to prevent dealers from selling their autographs on eBay. I don't know why he thinks he has to do that, as a dealer probably couldn't get $0.99 on eBay for an autograph of his...
