I have also been thoroughly job hunting. I literally have a deadline to find employment so it has been a fairly stressful time spent between jobs. Some days feel more promising than others, some days I have a fleeting feeling of just giving up - but in reality, I can't - I won't.
#9 Cam Neely, Boston Bruins
1990-91 Panini Hockey Stickers
A surprise return from Boston Bruins legend Cam Neely really made up for the lull at the mailbox that I've experienced lately. Not only is Neely a Boston Bruin legend, he is the ultimate Boston Bruin. Often regarded as one of the best power forwards of his time, Neely was an amazing goal scorer who set the tone of the game through his physical play.
Neely was never really the same player after the infamous Ulf Samuelsson hit in the 1991 Wales Conference finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Bruins. Cam had just completed his second consecutive 50-goal season with Boston - hip and knee injuries would limit him to only 22 regular-season games over the next two seasons, arguably caused by the Samuelsson hit.
He would retire from hockey in 1996 due to a degenerative hip condition. Neely was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2005.
The '90 Panini Cam Neely is another signed sticker towards my set collection. Just missing a signed Greg Hawgood sticker to complete the Bruins team set, he has been a very difficult former player to track down.
