"Stanley Cup Kings - Special Commemorative Issue" = Not Good

So my wife saw this magazine at the store today http://blog.buckaroo.com/Pages/Posti...b-782bcb70958d which looks like it would be a good read and to add to my collection. I've only read about 20 pages so far, but I'm already pretty annoyed with it.

In talking about a game from November, it says "Mike Richards scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period before Simon Gagne put in the 52nd game-winning goal of his career. Both Richards and Gagne were part of the Flyers team that had won the Stanley Cup two seasons earlier, and their presence alone was bringing just the sort of tough-minded, championship resolve that Los Angeles was looking for."

Then a few pages later, they have a page of "Champ Facts" with a few facts from the season. The first one states "The Kings opened the season by losing in Stockholm, Sweden to the Rangers 3-2 in OT, and following it up with a loss in Berlin to the Sabres." What makes this even worse, is this is only a few pages after the it states how then started off the season in Europe and split the two games. Not sure how many more of these I will come across in the remainder of the magazine.

Just wanted to post this up in case anyone sees one of these and wants to buy it. Was really looking forward to reading through this magazine but am already pretty annoyed with it to even continue. Save your money til a different one is released.

Who is that by? I'd suggest buying the following "official" guides/books from the NHL and LA Times (which is what I did).

LA Times Published Book:

NHL Published Book:

Official Stanley Cup Program (which I just received today):

How are those Ziggy ? I've got those 3 in my Amazon.com CART to buy, but haven't pulled the trigger just yet ... all this crap is adding up and getting expensive, so I'm trying to figure out what's actually WORTH getting, versus what will be a waste.

Exactly.

I have put off buying ANYTHING until I get an idea of the quality of the product.

I enjoy the official program, some great images and articles and it's rather thick too. The other two books haven't been released yet.
