    Are there any other companies that produce draft guides like the Hockey News that puts them on sale at book stores or other magazine places?

    Why do you find that funny? It's the less expensive one...

    And BTW, is it shipped already?

    for magazines? I'll take the THN one for 5 bucks..even if it may not have as much info..

    I just think 25 or 26 bucks is a little expensive for a magazine..

    agreed, unless it's filled with a bunch of naked women, it ain't worth it.

    Judging by past issues, McKeens may be 4 times as expensive, but it's about 10 times better.

    well now u guys have me curious :(

    The only thing though I'd worry about is the time to ship here. I'd be paying paypal (echeck) and that takes about a week to clear..

    It says it ships in June sometime...I'd better get it BEFORE the draft.

    I ordered it too (a month ago), I hope it gets here in real early June. It isn't much good if it is a few days before the draft. Too much cramming.

    You are not kidding there. I went over to visit my fiancee, now my wife, about 15 years ago and paid over $50 for three pieces of apple cake and 3 hot chocolates at the Oslo ski jump.
    Big Macs without the meal were $6.
    Norway is beautiful (the women are too), but ridiculously expensive. Socialized everything at its finest. Taxes included.

    yeah. its crasy here. for a big mac meal you have to pay about 15 U.S $. if you go to norways highest mountain you have to pay about 7-8 U.S$ for a glass of limonade. and clothes are ridicoulosly over-prized. its not even funny.

    The pay must be scale as well though? They cant charge you 15 bucks for mcdonalds and then only pay you a low salary......your salary must be inflated big time over there?

    I received the monthly issues of McKeens, and while not really big, it has a lot of informations, and it's not that expensive...so far, I'm happy and I can't wait for the draft guide!

    I picked up an issue of The Hockey News last year in June to check out the prospect write ups. I was pretty happy w/ it and had an idea about players going into the draft.
