Less-than-royal treatment

Western Conference teams usually draw a good crowd of hounds whenever they play Tampa Bay. Yesterday, though, I was surprised by the relatively light turnout. I’d say, at most, there were 15 collectors and dealers for the Los Angeles Kings.

Those who did show up, and put in a full day, shouldn’t be disappointed. Now, a few people were disappointed that Anze Kopitar, apparently everyone’s key player, didn’t sign a dozen 8 x 10s. I’m not complaining, though.

Another 13 pucks, including a pair from Kopitar and one from Rob Blake, were added to the collection. Even better, was that Colin was able to join me in the afternoon, having Dustin Brown, Alexander Frolov, Patrick O'Sullivan, Konstantin Pushkarev and Lubomir Visnovsky sign his team sheet (shown above) and Sean Burke and Mathieu Garon for his autographed goalie card collection.
