Not true at all.

I remember when that issue came out.

EVERYONE was talking about it at the time. EVERYONE.

You couldn't find a person into sports who didn't pick up that issue and at least check out a game the next season.

That issue sparked a whole lot of talk about the NHL no matter what was said on the inside.

That cover is historic in terms of a discussion point for this league.
