True to his word

Raise your hand if you've ever had an NHL player tell you "Not now, but I'll sign for you later," but then he ignores your requests the rest of the day? Wow! I'm surprised there's that many.

To be honest, I thought that was what Atlanta's Mathieu Schneider was going to do Tuesday, as he begged off from signing (a time-honored trick among NHLers with inflated egos) before the team's morning skate.

To his credit, though, he kept his word, signing after the workout. In fact, he even waited until I dug out these two pucks. Next trip, I'll have a couple more pucks for him.
