    Is it just me, or does the Toews mock up card have a John Tavares photo?

    What’s the deal with Upper Deck and the Team Canada stuff the last couple of years? I get that a large amount of this product goes to Canada, but how about some Team USA cards sometime? These cards are sold here, too.

    Yep and I agree. Toews, Tavares… They are both Johns right?
