I think all the guy was asking was if they actually WRITE a decent amount about his team. You know, the way ESPN focuses on Detroit and Colorado and TSN focues on Canadian teams. Its not worth paying for if 80% of the material is on the Laffs or another Canadian team alot of us dont care about.

Why are so many people on these boards complete a$$e$ when someone asks a question?

Because the same people are the ones that want to get lists and information for free at the costs of others who pay.

Right. Do think anyone would take McKeen's seriously if they did their work like ESPN? No.

Are you illiterate? Two separate questions with two different answers. I wanted to know what type of articles they put out, and then I asked if they percieved a bias against the Preds. I do not want to pay 5 bucks for garbage. Understood?

The real question is would it really be a huge financial setback if your $5 investment didn't pan out?

Its 5 dollars a month or 50 dollars a year. I'm not going to spend what tantamounts to a years subscription to Hockey News or something else.......If its not worth it. Its called knowing what you invest in. Its not hard logic to understand....

$5 a month is $60 per year

They give you two months free if you do the year one for 50$. I for one enjoy being a subscriber to McKeens. They're very down to earth and they often love to help you out with your questions. I have asked many questions threw out the past year to their guys and they have been great to answer them.

Also there is no other website out there who well give you the service they have, I mean a top 100 list for draft eligible players with profiles on each one is unmatched on the web. Some times I read there stuff and go that's not true, or what do they see there? Example, Patrick Ehelechner, they say when he moves laterally he opens up wholes...yet when I watch him I see no such problem. In the same light though I don't agree with Redline or ISS always.

I would recomend a subscription to Mckeens my self. But that's just my personal preference.

Personally, I thought it was a pretty big waste of money. They only have big features 3 or so times a year. They also make it really difficult to unsubscribe (you can't do it online, you have to call), and they continue to spam your e-mail to try to get you to rejoin.

IMO, it should something like $10 for the entire year with no auto-renew, no irritations.

Right. I'm not all that interested in .5 PPG 2nd line OHL wingers that will drop to the 5th round of the draft, but if you were, McKeen's would probably be a great resource. I was expecting really in-depth discussion and updated stats of top prospects, recent tournaments, etc. It was cool to read right before the draft, but afterwards I really didn't have any use for it so I dropped it. I'd probably pay the 5 bucks again during draft time, but I was really annoyed by having to call and unsubscribe.

I went with trying it out this month and I did enjoy what I read. I'm still going to try it on a month-by-month basis to see how good it remains. I did enjoy reading their top 100 prospect list and their top 100 '05 draftees list. I'm not sure if it's worth the same investment to you, but I liked it enough to be willing to give them another couple months of my $5

And thanks for the feedback Legionnaire!

McKeen's isn't worth the $$. Not much new info about propects. IMO, any ranking is fun to look at but to be taken with a grain of salt. The only ranking I give any validity to is the draft itself.

How much info do you want? There are about three updates per year for top prospects.

I think its excellent value for the amount you have to pay. I appreciate their rankings as well because they do see a lot of games and its their opinion which makes it similar to what a scouting staff may be thinking. Had an opportunity to chat with one of their scouts at a recent NTDP game, very intelligent fellow who seemed to know a lot about the game.

I agree with that politic.

On the other hand, I find those new threads pointing to a McKeen update extremely dumb and irritating.

People can't really ask questions. People can't really comment unless they subscribe to McKeen. So I guess those threads are for people who subscribe to McKeen and should be commented on their own board.

Under those circumstances, why the **** are these threads started? And why don't you guys nuke them out of (completely useless) existence?

They probably wouldn't, but I can not see the article. I wanted to know if they were fair, and adaquetly represented the team I pull for. What is so wrong with that? Quit hounding me for what amounts to nothing but smart investement.

What an ignorant and uninformed comment. Do you work for ISS or Redline?
