Meet and Greet

Last few years - the Stars have done a Meet and Greet at the Galleria Mall. Online, it seems its typically been set at the end of August or in the first part of September.

Anyone know what the dates are for 2012? Maybe the collective bargaining is making them hesitant to set a date yet?

I unfortunately haven't heard anything about it this year so far.

Haven't heard anything yet, but I think it usually when the whole team is at training camp. I've never been able to make one, but it's usually a really popular event.

It's called the "Ice-Breaker" if they're still going to do it.

Yes, I saw it was called that in past years

Yep. Usually is in the middle of September or towards the end. Definitely isn't anywhere close to August.

I looked on Google, and I'd swear that once in the past few years itw as at the end of AUgust.

Anyway - I'm just wondering if anyone knew. I wanna try to snag a Jagr autograph if possible.

Unfortunately, from what I've read about past years - they don't tell you who will be there. So, a 3 hour drive might be for nothing...

Still no date set I can see, unless ya'll see something...

I think this contract situation may play a part in the delay of the date?

I went last year, as far as I could tell the entire NHL roster was there, I remember no one even caring about Souray. I stood in line for some time to get my Kari jersey autographed...

Well, I wanna catch Jagr if the do it this year... He's the only one I am interested in getting a signature...

But thanks for the info. I wasn't sure how big the crowd would be

You can always stop by DPSC Frisco. Players will just about always sign stuff when they are leaving (locker room doesn't connect to players garage) I don't believe Jagr is there yet like other players but he will be when the season rolls around.

Interesting.

I'm down in College Station - so, it's a 3 hour drive for me. Each way.

I wanna know that he'd be somewhere to sign something for sure, if possible.

But, I may have to look into that.

just make sure if you go during the season that:

A: There is practice that day
B: It's in Frisco opposed to elsewhere such as AAC
C: It isn't a closed practice

You can always call, they'll tell you.

If you go to the event at the Galleria make sure you get there at the butt crack of dawn, the lines are insane, especially for popular players. I'd be willing to bet the line for Jagr would be even more insane.

I'm also having trouble finding a 2nd person to go with me. Hell, I'd have to leave here like 4am, for the drive. And, I need a 2nd person so I can exit the line if I use the bathroom, and the other person could hold our spot.

My wife explicitly told me she is not getting up to leave at 4am
