Well, I’m down to only 5 pucks remaining. Anyone wanna pick a guy and stalk them until you find a way to get them to sign a puck?

Man, all I gotta say is even if you never track down those last five…you did a hell of a job!  Truly.

I'm not giving up, its not gonna be easy (Kampurri in Finland, especially), but I am going to do whatever I can to try to get it done. 

The thing that irks me most is 2 out of the five are in the US, I should be able to get those easily, but that hasn't happened. I may be getting to the point where I am getting annoying, if they are seeing and ignoring my requests. 

But as anyone who reads my NJDevs posts knows, I could really give a sh!t if I'm annoying lol.

Understood but when you want something as you know this attitude won't work. Congrats mfitz804 on your accomplishments to date with this hobby.

Yeah I know. I’m nowhere near as abrasive as I am here, I save that for you guys.

I just posted that for the 4 guys other than Aaron Dell, I’ll pay a $25 finders fee to whomever gives me the info that leads to my obtaining a signed puck. I’m kind of out of ideas, so I figured I would see if anyone else is more resourceful.

Worth the try, today $25 isn't much. Wouldn't it be worth a $100/each to you to get what you need? BTW where did you post your offer? Good luck.

No, it wouldn’t be worth $100 each for me. I have already spent significant money and someone resourceful could find me 4 pucks and make $100 sitting at home. I don’t expect anyone will actually take me up on it (especially given that my blog is read by like 6-10 people), but the offer is there. 

I posted the offer on my blog, http://www.thepuckproject.com

Decided to up it to $40, thanks for the advice.

Got contacted by the MSG Network today, asking me if I am interested in working with them and having the puck project appear on air in the upcoming season.

That's awesome!  If anything they might be able to help you track down the remaining ones (as part of the story).

You are probably right, but I am also 99% sure I have zero interest in talking about my collection on TV. 

Yeah safe to say that's a gamechanger.

Congrats. That's exciting, please keep me posted because I am interested.  Maybe? .....I knew a guy when....NOW look at him.

Was looking at my collection with a “what’s next” view, and I realized I already have 3 out of the 12 captains in team history. I imagine most of them are readily available. 

So now I have a side quest.

Got a second email from a production company looking to incorporate my collection into one of those fan commercials, exactly what I don’t want. 

I replied to both today and politely declined.

Hey I thought I might be able to try to help you get a needed puck because I have so much idle time in bed but I just got another negative medical report that will cause me to be sleeping more because of pain meds, while in bed. Not what I wanted, but it is what it is. Sorry. I think you will get all of them, I hope you do. Later

I haven’t responded yet but I’m going to decline. I’m too private a person to be “out there” like that. 

If you’re a few pucks short, I can’t imagine a better possible resource than MSG and a segment during a Devils game that might unearth a friend of a friend of a friend who can get you the pucks you need to fill it out.
