I wrote to longtime Blues captain Eric Brewer last spring, right after he had been traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning.  I was hoping for a quick return.  When a guy switches teams, it can be an ideal time to snatch a quick TTM autograph if you can get your letter into a fresh pile of mail, before it accumulates.  I obviously didn't get the fast return that I thought I might, but I did get a return.  And a successful return is always worth the wait.
