Third out of three from the group of Peerless Patches cards I purchased last month, is the one I came in for in the first place. This one is of James Neal, and is numbered 22/40.
The card features a sweet-looking patch from the team's previous third jersey. It most likely comes from the "N" on the bottom of the jersey crest. I know I've written about Neal before on many different occassions, and specifically, how awesome he is statistically. Here's a new perspective, though. Neal was the third round pick of my fantasy hockey team, Moves Like Jagr, but despite being a third-round pick, my season seems to be living or dying based on whether or not Neal plays. During the first part of the year, with him out injured, I didn't win one single week. Then he came back, and I started finally lighting up the scoreboard. Now, while he was out for a week and a half with a suspension, it's back to the basement again. Hopefully with him back in the lineup, I can finally get myself a few more wins.
