No, this isnt a terrible re-post. The Avs really were here twice in 3 wks. Gary Bettmans NHL, gotta loathe it.
I have enjoyed going for the Avs for a long time. The Joe Sakic effect helped, as well, they often had more class players than ass players. This years roster was more or less the same.
CRAIG ANDERSON- 4 autographs. He actually looked put out to be signing, but still did multiple items without saying anything about it.
PETER BUDAJ- 1 autograph. An often Jekyle & Hyde signer, was more on the unwilling than willing side this trip, but still did sign on more than 1 occasion.
JOHN MICHAEL LILES- 3 autographs. Always a great signer, still a class act.
BRETT CLARK- 5 autographs. Except the 1 time where he was with Budaj who seemed uninterested in signing at the time, Brett was an accomodating signer.
KYLE QUINCEY- 3 autographs. Being one of the several new faces on this team since last time I had gone for them. It took me a while to get him because I was having trouble IDing him. Once I did though, he did everything.
SCOTT HANNAN- 3 autographs. Scott has always shown a level of unhappiness with signing, but he still does it.
ADAM FOOTE- 4 autographs. Back when he would hang out with Patrick Roy I actually thought he was a dick. Turns out it was just the people he was hanging with. He has been nothing but class since breaking away from one of the sports least classy guys.
RYAN WILSON- 2 autographs. Had no problem asking him for a 2nd item.
KYLE CUMISKEY- 2 autographs. Was willing to sign multiples.
RUSLAN SALEI & TOM PREISSING- no reports
PAUL STASTNY- 4 autographs. Was a consistent 1 per person each time you saw him. Dont try to loop him, or he stops signing all together.
MATT DUCHENE- 7 autographs. I know the numbers say otherwise, but hes actually a less accomodating signer than the stats show. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time a couple times. Generally, he is a strict 1 per on photos, and a 2 per overall.
RYAN O'REILLEY- 3 autographs. Happily did multiples. If he keeps up this pace for too much longer, we'll see if he is still happy to do multiples.
WOJTEK WOLSKI- 2 autographs. When confronted for an autograph, he'll do it. But he will do everything he can to avoid that, including waiting for a bigger player to be signing in hopes of sneaking by.
MILAN HEJDUK- 5 autographs. Usually a good 1-2 per signer. Still was.
DAVID JONES- 5 autographs. Willingly did everything presented to him.
CHRIS STEWART- 5 autographs. Signed multiples, but when there was more than a couple people around, he limited to just 1 or 2 per.
MAREK SVATOS- 1 autograph. He is continually challenging Wojtek for worst signer on the team. This trip, he might have won.
DAVID KOCI- 3 autographs. Willing signer of multiples.
BRIAN WILLSIE- 2 autographs. Willing signer of multiples.
PHILIPPE DUPUIS- 1 autograph. Signed anything put infront of him.
CHRIS DURNO- 2 autographs. Signed whatever was asked of him.
TJ HENSICK- 0 autographs. Signed willingly when asked, I just kept missing him for other players.
DARCY TUCKER, TJ GALIARDI, CODY MCLEOD & AMTT HENDRICKS- no reports
JOE SACCO- 1 autograph. Signed anything that he was asked to sign.
ADAM DEADMARSH- 4 autographs. Did everything asked of him.
STEVE KONOWALCHUK- 0 autographs. Signed whenever he was asked.
Total autographs from Colorado- 72
