I just downloaded THN Draft Preview.

While reading the 1999 Draft in review article the author TWICE claims that the Draft was in Atlanta--when in fact it was in BOSTON.

How do you screw up something as basic as the location while writing a review article? Makes me question the quality of writing and the quality of editing--yikes.

Any update on this?

And when will it be mailed?

Thanks for your interest.

Finishing touches are being made this weekend. It will then be sent to the printers and mailed out the first week of June as previously specified.

Sorry eveyone, the FC release has been pushed back to mid-week (Wed-Thu) due to the fact that all the content is not yet finished. It should only be two more days for the writers, then a day for layout and it should be released.

Is there any way to see a sample of the guide or could you copy/paste a small portion of it? I'm intirgued but I don't want to spend so much money when I don't know what I'm getting.

No. These services won't stay in business if people start pirating pieces of them. Get off your wallet.

I have not gotten my ISS copy either. I have bought it every year since 2005 and it is NEVER out on the day promise. Everytime I have had to email them to finally get it. I was hoping this year would be different.

Dang, Kirk! Still hanging around these here parts? I had about given you up for the bright lights and big city of the NHL Network or sumthin.

Drop me a line and let me know what you've been up to.

Also- do you still have a copy of that article you wrote back in '05 that I was in? Would love to see it, as I had a computer crash and lost that file.

Take care, dude and hope your ISS wait isn't too long...

I talked to Dennis yesterday, he said I should have my digital version within 1 to 2 business days (as of yesterday).

I love the ISS Draft Guide, but their customer service is ridiculous.

Two years ago, they forgot to send me my copy. I ended up with an electronic copy over a week after the release date.

Last year, I ordered the electronic version. It took three emails from me to have it arrive late.

This year it's already two days late, and two emails from me have resulted in zero replies from ISS.

Great guide, bush-league customer service.

Technically, it's been more than two days late. The original release date for the International Scouting Service: 2009 NHL Draft Guide was May 15th and not May 25th.
