We won't get it out here for at least two weeks, if at all.

Nice to see my favourite issue of THN has my favourite team on the cover this year! I should frame it, lol. Here's hoping it's in the mailbox tomorrow.

re: Blake Wheeler

Remember, he just completed his junior year in high school. Yes, the high school leagues in Minnesota are very competitive but even so, not good enough to warrant a high pick. He MIGHT slip into the 1st round but a lot of teams are basically saying "he's a junior in high school... we wish he opted out" and he probably should've because as a senior (and a year older) he could've developed even more and maybe even raised his draft stock significantly.

Timeframe might be correct, but the price is the same as a regular issue of Hockey News, and there no way it's 20 USD. Maybe around 12 is the absolute peak. Even so, it's unbelievably expensive.

Typically they're among the last to get them. B&N used to use a periodicals distributor based in Tennessee---they got the papers first, then bundled them up and sent them on to the retail locations. It sometimes added weeks to distribution.

Granted, my personal experiences with the Evil Riggio Machine ended 4 years ago...

7-11s are very reliable for having THN, however they often shelve it very late.

What? Fransson at 37th and Hedman at 80th? I guess that Hedman has a couple of Swedes infront of him on the list. Salmonsson where? Soderberg? Anyone else?

My question (from everything here that I've read so far and forgive me if this sounds like a really stupid question)...does ANYONE at THN even bother to cover the "developmental leagues" such as the US High Schools and the Canadian Junior "A" leagues? I've been a THN subscriber for years and I almost NEVER see coverage of ANY player, regardless of how phenomenal they are, from these leagues outside of draft time and even during draft time, very little is mentioned about these kids.

Is there someone in particular that you find has been neglected? THN typically blankets a panel of scouts, front office personnel, etc... to come up with their rankings.

As a matter of fact, I do. Blake Wheeler is one that comes to mind as well as Alex Goligoski, Torrey Mitchell, Chris Zarb and Travis Zajac.
