Every team that comes to town stays at The St. Paul Hotel. I've gotten dozens of autos over there - Sakic, Leetch, Hull, and the Great One, yes, Gretzky, among many others. Leclair was a jerk. Yzerman was a jerk. Iginla was cool. Gabby signed for me outside of the Minnesota Club (he drove a white BMW 745li with damage to the rear quarter panel) when he was still playing for us.

They changed it over there now; they used to never have staff out there but fans were pestering them too much, or the players complained. Now they have it roped off, but drive by the front of it about three hours or so before any given game day and you will still see auto hounds out there.

The majority of players usually just like to get on the team bus but you can occasionally get some that just like to walk through the park.
