I was gonna PM ya when it got closer to see if you were going or not.

I'm headed to Dallas this Thur to try and catch Jagr again (to gets some jerseys signed). Depending on how that goes will depend on if I will bring a jersey for Simmonds to sign at the carnival (I bought one at the stadium last year - and it was sewn and not heat pressed). I only have room to hang up one more jersey in my office at home.

Otherwise I'll probably get pics and pucks signed. I got Kimmo's autograph last year on a puck and that squared jersey replica that hangs on the wall. I don't think I'll get him to sign anything this year. Not gonna see Bryz again this year either.

I'm after seeing Simmonds, Giroux and Talbot again. I also wanna catch Lavi, and I'm gonna try to catch Hartnell this time (depending on the schedule of times). I didn't buy a ticket for him last year.

I would like to add some signatures to this:

Not if he ends up in Finland and doesn't return. Not a crazy thought, pretty common with our Euro brethren.

If you're referencing the Carnival, they haven't set a date yet.

Kimmo hasn't done a paid signing outside of the carnival in YEARS (around in philly area at least). Nor does he stop outside at skate zone. He along with G, Briere, Hartnell Bryz etc. backdoor to the other side and zoom out.

during the lockout i went to skate zone when the "lockout gang" was practicing and graphed. Briere snuck out while i was in the pro shop, Giroux told me he had somewhere to be and would "get me next time" and i got kimmo. I had a pic and a puck He was like only one. Im like seriously its only me here and im in a work uniform you cant sign the one pic too? so i accepted at least getting something and went about my business. great player but almost as bad as Jagr with autographs. Jagr was impossible to get but at a paid event he was awesome

Man, they had a surprise pre-sale on the Carnival facebook page yesterday at 2pm. I didn't see that until I got home.

Tickets went on sale this morning. All Giroux tickets are already sold. That sucks. I tried calling several times, and it said "all circuits were busy." No way to get thru. And, I got on the website as soon as I could. All gone.

I bought one for Hartnell, and will get some of the other players offered there on site. But this sucks.

That's lame.

I only wanted a Briere ticket and got that, so I'm happy.

Yes - when they've advertised all week that tickets go on sale today at 10am, that was lame to then open it yesterday.

On the game last night, they said "tickets on sale now." Everytime I tried, it wouldn't go thru, and claimed that tickets didn't go on sale tomorrow. I think they had a code on the facebook page, though.

Anyway, oh well... I still hope to see talbot and simmonds again. Love to get Wellwood to sign something to. And, I have a Lavi shirt "It's time for some jam" from last year - I wanna get him to sign that. The line for Lavi was very short last year - so, that should be easy

Yea I saw that, that's bull. I would have been ticked off if I wanted Giroux. I actually got him at Kisses for Kyle, a charity even last year. Me and my sister went for free since her boss was a sponsor and it was like $5 per auto, I got 3 things signed and got to talk to him a bit. Read was there too.

I'm sure you'll be able to get anyone else with no problem. I'm taking my girlfriend for Briere to get her jersey signed, and I just want Timonen again on a game puck. Other than that I'm not dying for anyone...maybe Pronger if he shows.

You'll have no issues getting Lavi. He'd probably be honored to sign it.

Last year, I remember sitting outside for about 2 hours before they let us in. Damn, it was cold. I'm buying one of those tiny, tiny folding stools to keep in my backpack and bring with me.

Eventually, they moved the line around, and we were finally out of the wind.

I was on crutches last year. Damn, I must have been around that stadium 2x total. I was worn out. I've got bone on bone in both knees, an can't stand up in a line (in one place) more than 2-3 minutes. So, I'll have to take my crutches again.

So, I had a goo time looking at all the stuff I got signed when I was done. But it was a damn workout crutching around that stadium

If you have one of the autograph/picture tickets can you have 2 people in the picture? Or two you need two separate tickets?

There were some questions about that on their facebook page. I'd go check there. I think they answered a few
