I saw that as well, there's nothing that suggests a signing per se. I'll probably head down after work with my friend and her six-year-old, he really wants to go.

I just called. Somehow the bonehead that answered the phone had this to say "I was told it was a meet and greet. I am not sure if there will be signings or not. I can't say". Seems to me that they won't be signing. I bet Marshall abd probably Clarkie would sign. I would say 50/50 on Elias and DEFINITE NO CHANCE on Marty and Stevens, just my opinion

Just got home from this. It ended up being Stevens, Brodeur, Kovy, Moose, White, and Zharkov. So glad I wore my Kovy jersey to this on a whim because it paid off. I also got a 1995 Cup Champions puck signed by Marty and Stevens. Definitely worth the wait outside.

FREE event of a lifetime. You will NEVER get Marty, Stevens and Kovy for free at a public signing ever!

No idea why no Elias...rumor was Clarkson's wife went into labor, and that's why he wasn't there.

But hey, Elias/Clarkson for Kovy/Zharkov/Hedberg/White? That's a trade I'll make. Got a hat signed by Moose for my mother, and got my jersey signed by all in attendance.

Myself and Amanda were 21st and 22nd on line at 12:45ish. It was kind of fun, though too cold for Amanda at points. Absolutely worth the time though, as a few others said...you'll never get Marty/Kovy/Stevens together for a free signing again. That was pretty awesome.

Also awesome? Knowing the cops in the area and getting in from the cold early (we waited for the first bunch to get in and get their autographs before hopping in line inside, but getting out of the cold a half hour early was great, not so much for me but for Amanda and the kid.)

One of these days I have to go back there and buy one of those Stanley Cup Waterford crystal pucks they had on display. Never knew they made such a thing.

As far as I know, Elias and Clarkson both live in the same housing complex so its possible that not only are they close friends but he decided to help the Clarksons which involved him in being present at the hospital.

Don't know how late you got in, but he seemed to be enjoying himself early on at least. Everyone seemed to be having a good deal of fun with it.

I don't imagine Kovalchuk was like, forced against his will to participate, considering he wasn't on the initial list of Devils who were going to be there.

Kovy has that whole Russian thing going on, lol. It seems like he never is as happy to see people as some of the other players, but maybe that's just my perception. Stevens looked like he wanted to kill me when I asked for an inscription, and he sternly replied "This is all I do." and gave me the Ciccarelli "You're next!" death glare. Needless to say I didn't bother asking to get another of the items I had in my bag signed...lol

Threecups what was the inscription? If it was the HOF he should be proud and happy to sign that....

Stevens is a STRICT NO INSCRIPTIONS guy and I knew it, but I figured I'd take a shot anyone. I asked for "95, 00, 03 Cup Champs"

He looked like he wanted to pummel me, hahaha
