Mike Mole PC!!! check it out!
The reason why I started to collect Mike is because he was my goalie coach. (I'm serious,and i'm not joking!)
I learned so much from him, and therefore became a much better goalie. I have him to thank for that.
The whole experience is one I will never forget. And its not every day you get a chance to be tought by a proffesional such as him.
Also its not every day you get to create a PC that is so very personal. I understand that every PC has its meanings, but this just one of
those special pc's that don't come along very often. Thats just my opinion.
As for Mike, he was the winner of the reality tv show "making the cut" (if an user even remembers?)
and also has played proffesionally for many years. He was called up by the New York Islanders in that span during his proffesional career. He was undrafted and was signed by the islanders organization in 2006. Mike is the meaning to the words "never give up" after paying his dues to finally get his name on an NHL roster. The odds were against him the whole time as LESS than 1% of Un-drafted Canadians will make an national hockey league roster. His career, and story is a unbelievable one at that. It was an honour to have him as a goalie coach. Mike's story is like the "Rudy" story of Hockey, as he was never drafted to the NHL and playing multiple years in the OHL, ECHL,CHL. Even after all that he never made a single roster in the NHL. Even after multiple NHL training camps, still nothing. He played for the St Francis Xavier X-men university hockey team and appeared on the reality show making the cut (and being one of the winners of the show), but still nothing. Finally he got his name on the Islanders roster in 2008.
I hope you all enjoy my PC as much as I do.
This one is for you Mike!

Cool pc man! I remember "making the cut" very well. Awesome show. Did mole not have any memorabilia or autos (not counting the lettermen) ? Again, nice collection man and good luck putting together the complete mole collection!
I will leave my signature the same until the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup. In short, I will never change my signature.

Very cool. It's cool that you have a background with the guy since he coached you, even cooler that you were able to snag those early rookie cards and minor league stuff. Nice, meaningful collection!
