I'm glad you posted that Unstable. I got that issue of SI in my mail almost two weeks ago, and it was actually more of a joke in print than on the interwebs.

As "NHL Playoff preview" was emblazoned on the front I figured they'd give their usual token 2 pages on the playoffs, but it was well worse than that. After their 4 page homage to Lundqvist - with pics of him hanging out with Bieber, McEnroe, etc - they finally got around to getting to their playoff forecast. All 1/2 of a page of it.

It consisted of nothing more than 3 paragraphs of "analysis" stating well known facts that people outside of hockey would know. They only picked the Conference finalists, and eventual cup winner. Surprise, surprise, they went chalk with Vancouver and went as short out on a limb as they could with Pittsburgh.
