Pat Elynuik is my first-ever international TTM success (opened just seconds before Perry Berezan)! Yes, thanks to the website of the Canadian Post Office, U.S. residents can purchase Canadian stamps, complete with free shipping. I ordered two strips of $1 Canadian stamps for the S.A.S.E.s, picked up the same amount of American 75 cent stamps for the request envelopes, and got busy. Elynuik was a solid sniper for the Winnipeg Jets teams of the late '80s and early '90s. He wasn't a star, but you didn't have to be a star to be "The Franchise" in Winnipeg in the post-Dale Hawerchuk, pre-Selanne & Tkachuk years.
