2008-09 NHL Season Preview previews



Last year in most of the book stores I visited there was only one magazine with hockey content on the shelves all season, the NHL's 2008 Yearbook. This year I posted a few notes from the Sporting News/Street and Smith's 2008-09 NHL Preview, the NHL's 2009 Yearbook, The Hockey News 2009 Yearbook, ESPN Magazine's NHL Preview complete with Ovechkin 09 campaign platforms, McKeens Hockey 2008-09 NHL preview, and of course the definitive Wave Magazine San Jose Sharks preview.

Bottom line according to the previews is that Detroit will advance past the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Finals to drop the Montreal Canadiens in their 100th anniversary season. Any magazines I missed?

You know, when I pulled this up, the magazine cover mirrors the King/Shark/Duck cartoon on the left of the page.

Maybe it is late in the day for me, but that is FUNNY!

Wave Magazine -- worldwide leaders mirrored cartoon infringement. :)

It is pretty cool, though, that Pavelski outtrumps Russell Crowe, etc.

Russell Crowe and Ryane Clowe.

Is it just me or does Pavelski's face make it look like he's really, really, really constipated?

I read The Wave just for Seanbaby, the greatest internet comedy writer ever.

These clowns are never right, so why do they even bother. As a Habs fan it upsets me to see that everyone is picking them to go to the Finals. A sure fire jinx that will cause them to flame out in the 1st round.

A Shark guide for a season it is the first time to see something like this in a magazine.
