One's better than none

When Hall of Famer Ron Francis was named an associate coach for the Carolina Hurricanes, two thoughts popped into my mind.

First, he was far too talented and skilled to not share his expertise with the team's younger players.

Secondly, and more selfishly, it meant that we'd have more opportunities to add to our collection. This Hartford Whalers puck, which Francis signed last Saturday before Carolina's 3-2 victory over Tampa Bay, is the latest addition.

A word of advice, though: He's a strict one-per signer. Always has been, always will be. You know what? I can live with that. So should you.
