It's 5 days before Christmas, and it seems that the DGS Super Spies have found letters to Santa from hockey players all over the world....we're re-printing some for you here.
From: Paul Holmgren
Can you give me a calculator? Everyone tells me I need to learn something called math.
From: The Florida Panthers
Can you make the league take us seriously? We're like in first place and all...
The Florida Panthers
From: Caps GM George McPhee
I'm trying to get to the conference finals for a change, but I also want to Fail For Nail. Can you help me with that?
Rick Nash and Jarome Iginla oddly wrote the same thing
Can I finally play for an NHL team? Please!
From Steve Mason:
I want a pony, a chance to play in the AHL and my talent back.
From Dwayne Roloson
Get Teemu to share his Fountain with me again.
From Peter Laviolette
I'm calling timeout and taking 30 seconds to make sure this letter is delivered perfectly.
Now, I want a goalie. A real goalie. A goalie who gives me consistent .925 SV%'s. I got Bryzgalov this summer instead. So I need to make sure this happens. Also; can you take out the 35+ provision in the CBA, we need to remove Pronger somehow. Thank you again for your cooperation.
The Buffalo Sabres
Can you bring us Ville Leino? Not this scrub who claims to be Ville but is not very good at hockey.
From Roberto Luongo,
Last year, I asked that the Canucks find a way to succeed in spite of my choking. I didn't actually mean for you to find Cory Schneider.
From Lou Lamoriello
Bah, humbug. Get through my trap, then dodge my jelly. Then find me a way to sign Zach Parise.
From Tim Thomas
Donuts. Lots of them.
