"We hit each other with a couple," he said. "But it felt good-- more the part of hitting him that him hitting me. That felt better. But just being in it. It's been a while. It's not something you get to do when you don't play in the NHL and stay out of jail. Usually, that's frowned upon in society. But it's fun to go against a tough guy just to challenge yourself."

"It was a 3-0 call," Bobby Holik said simply, referring to the score at the time. "I think it was the first time ever for the teams I've played for."

"Not for me," he said. "I always try to play well and I always prepare and practice the same way every day whether it's the off-season, training camp or the 52nd game of the season (which it is tonight). That's one thing that's beyond my control as far as three goalies, four goalies and coaching decisions on who plays and who doesn't.

"I like to think that I'm somebody that takes my job seriously and I do those things at a high level. When I do that and practice well and I put in the time and as much extra, the other stuff is beyond my control. I can sleep comfortably at night knowing that I do everything I need to do to help my teammates and to be able to play the way I'm capable of playing when given a chance."

Scoring chances against remain low. Scoring chances for have doubled. It's Sutter hockey, and it's working.

"Sure it's difficult, but you've got to make decisions and Whitey's going to go back in the lineup and someone's going to come out,"

Honestly I'm not sure. If it was me I probably wouldn't turn you away if you showed up day of the event with no ticket but cash in hand. But there is always a possiblity of a cap on the number of autographs.

I'd probably just call them to confirm. Sports Minded is a pretty easy place to deal with.

Just got off the phone with them and you have to pay for the ticket (per signature) before, over the phone by credit card and they will send /mail you the tickets for the signing day.

spoke with him today, he has 300 tickets and suggest purchases them over the phone vs coming to the door.. because he thinks he should sell out.
he also sounds like a great guy.. says he doesnt rush you through like cattle.. but 300 ppl in 2 hours, you have to be kind of quick - LOL
see ya there

Yes it would be best to order the tickets over the phone and they will ship them to you right away. Karen and the person you spoke too was Bryan, who is a nice guy and his sports place is really nice.
Three-hundred people is a lot but I think he has only 300 tickets, which means it could be less than 300 people meaning buying multiple tickets for items signed. :noclue: It should be a fun day and signing as Parise signings always are. :)

We went for the first one, Zach is such a nice guy, he'll talk to you & smile. You can tell he's just not going through the motions, he seems appreciative. You go behind the table & can stand right behind him for an extra picture, which I hold more valuable than the autograph for my 11-yr.old daughter. Plus the store has a ton of laminated Zach photos & other Devils stuff. Get there early & enjoy.

Jerseys

FYI for those going tomorrow I noticed in Sports Minded today what I thought was a decent deal on the older style authentics from it appears 06-07. He has a good size rack of jerseys.

I included pics in the other thread.

Just came back from this and had a great time. Zach was so nice and I got a beautiful 16x20 signed by him. Also got a pick with him, me and my wife. Great store and the salespeople are very nice.

This store did a great job with the signing. It was very organized, and it was not rushed whatsoever. One of the better signings I have ever attended. I hope they get some other players in the future...
