Standing alone

I suppose the last thing I want to hear out of South Florida is that hockey hounds are having a hard time getting the Florida Panthers to sign. From what I hear, hockey hounds/dealers have been very few and far between over the past week or so.

In fact, there's just one hound that's putting in the time in sweltering South Florida.

Though the lure of air conditioning kept him in his car from time to time, he did post these successes:

~ Jay Bouwmeester signing six cards;
~ Nathan Horton signing three cards;
~ Anthony Stewart signing four cards;
~ pucks collected from practice and signed by Cory Stillman, Richard Zednik (it's good to hear he's back skating, isn't it?), Stewart and Stephen Weiss; and
~ pictures from prospects Stefan Meyer and Tanner Glass.

And then there's this little gem: Weiss got teammate Greg Campbell to sign a Plymouth Whalers project helmet. Both played for the Ontario Hockey League team.

Hopefully, with the Panthers' training camp opening today and practices Saturday, more hounds/dealers will begin their seasons.
