I AM JUST WRITING TO LET YOU KNOW THAT FOR A HOCKEY TEAM THAT IS TRYING TO REGAIN PUBLIC SUPPORT, YOUR TEAM IS THE WORST. I HAVE A 10 YEAR OLD NEPHEW WHO PLAYS YOUTH HOCKEY AND I JUST HAD HIS GOALIE MASK PAINTED. THE MASK PAINTING COST 700.00 DOLLARS, AND ON IT ARE HIS THREE FAVORITE GOALIES: ROBERT ESCHE FROM THE FLYERS, MARTIN BRODEUR AND RAYCROFT FROM THE LEAFS. THE FLYERS WWERE GREAT ABOUT ALLOWING MY NEPHEW TO MEET AND GREET WITH ESCHE TO GET HIM TO SIGN THE MASK, AS WERE THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS ABOUT GETTING THE MASK SIGNED BY RAYCROFT. THEN THERE ARE THE DEVILS. JEFF ALSTADTER FROM YOUR PUBLIC RELATIONS DEPARTMENT. I ASKED HIM IF HE COULD HAVE BRODEUR SCRIBBLE HIS NAME ON THE MASK EITHER BEFORE OR AFTER THEIR UPCOMMING FLYERS GAME, AND WAS FLAT OUT TOLD NO. MAYBE I WAS ASKING TOO MUCH TO HAVE A MULTI-MILLONAIRE TAKE 2 SECONDS TO SCRIBBLE HIS NAME ON A MASK FOR A 10 YEAR OLD. IT WOULD HAVE MEANT THE WORLD TO THE KID. MAYBE IF BRODEUR WAS EVEN ASKED HE MIGHT HAVE SAID YES, AFTER ALL PART OF THE MASK IS A TRIBUTE TO HIM. INSTEAD OF MAKING A KIDS DREAM COME TRUE, YOU HAVE CRUSHED IT!!!!!! I WOULD LIKE TO JUST TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN FOR RUINING A KIDS DREAM. A CPOY OF THIS LETTER WILL BE FORWARDED TO EVERY NHL TEAM AND THE LEAGUE OFFICES AND EVERY OTHER FAN BULLETIN AND WEB SITE IMAGINABLE!!!!!!!!

Also great job in supporting the breast cancer fund raiser sponsored by TPS. YOUR TEAM IS THE BEST IN COMMUNITY RELATIONS.
