SCRIBBLES & SCRIBES - Not Heroes, But Prospects

Holy cow! It's the return of Scribbles & Scribes! Why you might ask? Well, I tripped on a nice looking signature from a prospect looking to make waves in the NHL.

Nino Niederreiter

But first, we have to take a look at a not-so-nice autograph. And this one disappoints on multiple levels. First (and foremost) it's lame. A weak attempt at spelling his name. Second, I had high hopes for a sweet looking sig from this guy. He has a cool name and some cool moves, so it would only make sense that he has a cool auto. Two out of three.....well, it's still bad.

I can make out the 'N' in Nino, and I'm assuming his number is 22. But that's about it. Once again, it's just 'up down up down up down up'. Did I mention that's lame.

Tomas Jurco

I have no idea who this kid is, I've never heard of him, I have no idea if he's been drafted or will be, but he has one nice looking autograph.

A throwback to the legends of penmanship, this sig has the class and style of some of the great names to sign their name.

Hold it up against the Beliveau's and the Perreault's. The Mahovlich's and the Richard's. Seriously, this auto fits right in.

Great job Tomas. Now all you need to remember is don't let the bazillion autograph requests once you reach the pros taint that sweet sig.


  1. While I agree with you on Nino's scribble, can you imagine what it would be like to spell out that name? I got pretty much the same thing from him on three pucks

  2. Thomas is a 30 y/o defenceman with 65 points in 350 games in his native Slovakia.
    I don't think we'll be seeing Mr Jurco anytime soon.

  3. Um... Captain Canuck? Tomas was actually drafted in the second round early this past year's draft by the wings. And, um...go on youtube to check out his sweet moves. I'm sure were gonna see him soon!
