Don (and everyone else in the same boat), I hear you. It has been incredible how awful the lack of mail has been with so many envelopes floating around. Yeah I got one today and I am happy about that but there are so many I have out that I should have a bunch of mail to open daily. Does anyone have any conspiracy theories to offer?

Every mailman is a huge hockey fan?????

Here's a theory, hope I'm wrong.
Maybe when the season ends alot of these guys (retired and current) kind of lose interest in the fan mail and just let it lie until next season.
Alright for someone like me who takes the summer off but not so much for others of you...
Just a theory.

It's likely a mixture of things. I might be wrong but I think Andy Bathgate takes summers off from signing. As I said, I think, I can't remember who it was but they take the summer off. I imagine other players do.
I've noticed that some send-outs, like a group of 10-15 sent out together, never return and I wonder if they're behind a table in some mail sorting room. :)

I think those are all good and reasonable theories - I hate the thought that my hundreds of envelopes along with Don's and others are now part of someone else's collection.

Hoping for you.
