Dobber is always the less bias and the more accurate of them all. Love it.

I've never purchased Dobber's before but you guys have sold me on it. I'm going to purchase it tonight.

I'll also purchase THN, The Forecaster and McKeen's when they all come out....as I always do. I will not be purchasing Hockey: The Magazine. Got it last year and it wasn't even worth the space it took up on my coffee table.

Got the Dobber magazine today. I didn't like that its just available online, but it looks good so far. Everything is well thought out and its very thorough - no statements made without explanation. If you buy pool magazines, you'd be remiss not getting this one.

Would have been at a store. The Ultimate Pool Guide isn't a part of the subscription.

I've got a fantasy keeper draft this Saturday and I really really want a hard copy. Makes the decision tough bc I know Dobber is easily the best, but only online.

No hard copies for a while other than Hockey The Magazine in some places and THN in some places, if your draft is this Saturday, I would pretty much be forced to print out Dobber.

It's a must, in my opinion, along with McKeens and Forecaster.

Don't purchase THN either, it's a rag.

Dobber costs $11.29 including tax, Dobber, Forecaster, McKeens are the three I always recommend.

Why do people consider THN so bad, out of curiosity?

To be honest, I don't really buy these mags for projections and rankings. I trust my own projections more than what they have to say.

I just like having one resource that gives me full stats for players over the last few years and maybe some rough lineups.

That's all I really need and I don't like having to use my laptop.

Same with me. I definitely move guys around based on what I hear in magazines - such as Dobber projecting a huge bounceback from Campbell in Florida, and many rave reviews of Jamie Benn, etc. But I've never gone 'by the book', especially someone elses book, on draft day.

Well jeez, if there haven't been any in Toronto, there isn't a hope in hell that there will be a copy or two in Saskatchewan. Damn.

My goal was to go looking after work today because I need something for this weekend.

Although THN is slated for August 8, it usually means that westerners won't get it until August 12 or later

How does it make any sense that we in Québec get the THN one in two langages a full week before the GTA and more than that for the RoC? It doesn't. That's crazy.

I just saw it on the stand, glanced through it, left it there. If it was 5$ I might have picked it up but for 10$ I need more than glossy pictures and recaps from last year.

Went for a drive to various convenience stores and book stores yesterday, never found anything relevant hockey-wise.

Not even like a year book with 2010-2011 stats, up to date.

Guess I'm hauling my laptop to my draft on Saturday.

ESPN hockey's tentative fantasy hockey start is August 16, which means ESPN projections may also come out on the 16th. In case you were wondering.
