This one seemed like a completely lost cause, due to unfortunate timing. 17 days after mailing my request to Edmonton, the Oilers traded the Bloomington, Minnesota native back home to the Wild. I gave it a couple days, on the off chance Mr. Gilbert may have placed it in a Canadian mailbox on his way out of town, but when nothing showed up I figured I would just try him again next season. So it's with great surprise (and curiosity) that this arrived, postmarked from St. Paul, but with Canadian postage. Hey, I'm not complaining!
