Dallas was the first team of the season that I actually had a bit of stuff of....but I just didnt care unfortunately.
They were here for parts or all of 3 days. I put in probably less than 2 hrs going for them.
I had other tips for other things on those days that kept drawing me away from going for them. So the report is fairly incomplete since I didnt really try for most of the team.
MARTY TURCO- 2 autographs. The first time I saw him, he actually ignored & got in a cab...granted we were probably 40 ft away. The second time however, he signed 2 without hestitation. Hes always been a relatively decent signer, still seems like he is.
ALEX AULD- 0 autographs. I had no items. But I saw him sign for those that asked. Seemed willing to do multiples.
STEPHANE ROBIDAS- 0 autographs. I had no items. Was willing to sign practically whatever was asked of him for those that wanted him.
TREVOR DALEY- 0 autographs. The 1 time I saw him & he was asked, he ignored & went into a cab.
MATT NISKANEN- 0 autographs. Surprisingly, ignored multiple people asking him the 1 time I saw him. Heard from others he was the same even when I wasnt there. Certainly a poor signer this trip.
KARLIS SKRASTINS- 0 autographs. I had no items. Still a great signer. Happily did multiples for those that asked.
JEFF WOYWITKA, NIKLAS GROSSMAN & MARK FISTRIC- Do not have a report on.
MIKE RIBEIRO- 4 autographs. Each time I saw him, he was a willing signer of 2 per. Hes been consistently one of the better signing stars on this team.
LOUI ERIKSSON- 2 autographs. The 1 & only time I asked him, he did multiple item still.
FABIAN BRUNNSTROM- 2 autographs. He used to sign everything, now he seems to put limits to 2-3 items each. Still good about signing, still takes his time, just doesnt sign as many though.
JERE LEHTINEN- 2 autographs. Still a decent signer, did multiple items for people who had 2 or 3 items displayed.
JAMES NEAL- 0 autographs. I had no items. Seemed willing to sign, which was a contrast from last year where he seemed put out to sign.
JAMIE BENN- 0 autographs. I had no items. Happily did multiple items for people who asked.
MIKE MODANO- 0 autographs. In the past 2-3 seasons, Modano has gone from a "good" signer to downright horrible. Again, like many other trips here, he showed his newfound allergy to sharpies by again not signing even 1 signle item. In his defense, hes consistent at least... collectors, dealers, fans, adult males, kids, women, all got the same classless treatment by the future hall of famer. He even refused to sign the morning they left for the massive crowd of ONE that was there.
BRAD RICHARDS, BRENDEN MORROW, TOBY PETERSEN, STEVE OTT, BRYAN SUTHERBY, TOM WANDELL, KRYSTOPHER BARCH- Do not have a report on.
ANDY MOOG- 1 autograph. Surprisingly, hes turned into a really good signer of late. Even doing multiple items for people now.
JOE NIEUWENDYK- 4 autographs. Super class act. Willingly did 2 items per person without hesitation & didnt get worked up by people looping in for more afterwards.
Total autographs for Dallas- 17
