TTM MOTHERLOAD! - pens fan addict - 09-26-2012 03:50 PM

As Ive posted before, I had become friends with former Florida Panthers Capatain & Enforcer Paul Laus. We email or Direct message one another all the time. I asked him once if it would be okay if I sent him a few things to sign, he said "No Problem," and gave me a special address to send the items to. (Sorry, I cant give it out)

Well on September 7 I sent him 2 Panthers Pucks, 4 8x10's, 15 5x7 pics (12 for him to keep) and 2 cards. He emailed me on September 14 and told me he received them, then on September 17 to tell me he sent them out and to let them know when it arrived.......

the last couple days hes emailed me asking if I had received the package yet....well today....of all days..HIS BDAY..... it arrived. 19 Day Turnaround!

My 11 items I sent....PLUS 30 MORE ITEMS HE ADDED:

- (1) 10th anniv Panthers Offic. game Puck
- (15) Of his hockey cards
- (8) Alumni PIC/Crads
- (6) 5x8 Team cards

EQUALLING 41 total Items received from the 11 I sent! All Auto'd and even some personalized!

Here are the pics!

Sweet stuff Hugh. Mr. Laus seems to be a first class guy.

Awesome story Hugh. Those are some great additions. Congrats.

awesome stuff. always nice to hear a player will take the time to do that

RE: TTM MOTHERLOAD! - azicet - 09-26-2012 07:47 PM

Very nice! (You should ask him if he kept in touch with Pavel Bure...and if he did, give him 20 Bure photos, pucks & cards to get signed!)

Man I wish an old player would e-mail me regularly haha. Nice stuff Hugh.

thanks for the story and great pics.
i think that would be awesome to have a player as a friend like that and email, txt or even call and talk to and just see how things are going

Thanks for all the great comments.

@Randi(formod) - McSorely hasn't responded back since I said I wouldnt be interested in his jersey at the extremely high price he was asking. Oh well.

I may be playing golf with Laus in a couple months when he poss comes down to Fla. That would be pretty cool. We'll see.
