Different looks

We're all familiar with the Florida Panthers logo, aren't we? Not the one with a palm tree and hockey stick crossed over a blazing sun. No, the one with the leaping cat, its teeth and claws bared. Yeah, that one.

Well, now that we've made that point allow me to make mine. Tapping into a diverse pool of pucks, like the ones shown above, are an excellent way to add breadth and depth to a collection.

These four pucks, among the 10 scored from the Florida Panthers last Saturday, illustrate my point:

Team USA: Keith Ballard (also signed a Panthers puck)
Rochester Americans: David Booth
Rimouski Oceanic: Michael Frolik (also signed a Panthers puck)
Milwaukee Admirals: Karlis Skrastins (also signed a Panthers puck)

So do the three from Cory Stillman.

Just wondering how you store your pucks... with closing in on 2000, I was just curious.

Every puck is kept in a individual case.

Some of these pucks (about 50-60) are out on display, either in Colin's room or one of two display cases in our office/playroom.

The rest are stored in boxes, tucked safely away.

In time, we'll create a showcase room where we'll display as many pucks as we can.

I've always thought, though, the entire collection of pucks would look pretty cool in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Great set of 4 pucks there.

I too think the HHOF would be a cool place to display them.
