That didn't take long

Going into any NHL season, I have one special item(s) that, for whatever reason, I must get signed. A couple years ago, it was Mike Modano on two distinct pucks. Last year, Colorado's Joey Sakic more than exceeded my expectations.

This season's item is a photo of Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos, the overall No. 1 pick in June's draft, signing Colin's Lightning jersey during a meet-and-greet for season-ticket holders earlier this summer. My only question was how long it would take.

Well, after this morning's trip to Brandon, where Stamkos was among a large contingent of skaters taking part in an informal scrimmage, I got my answer -- not very long.
