My first issue was with the fact that they had one line wrapping around the side closest to the 110, but then if you went around to the other side you could walk right up to the doors. The staff didn't seem to care that some people waited in line while others didn't.
I can understand why people got fewer autographs. There's simply more STHs than there were before. Trying to fit more people in with the same amount of time will lead to fewer player experiences. I got to the station with Bernier, Gagne, Mitchell, and Richards first. Then walked over to Voynov, Lewis, and Doughty. Got into the standby line for Clifford, Martinez, and Penner. Clifford had to go, so he just went through he whole line signing stuff. Penner and Martinez stayed about 30 minutes or so after close, those guys were real class acts.
On the one hand maybe Tip-a-King will be better, but then again, that isn't STH-only, so it might be worse. Just something we need to cope with having more STHs and more fans in general, folks.
