    I've been wondering if THN will have the top 50 prospect issue this year like they have every year. It is usually published in February (This month), but I didn't see it in the "Coming Issue" part in the back. It's always a great read and draws alot of talk around here, and I've been looking forward to it, but I haven't seen anything about it. So I was wondering, will they have it this year? :dunno: :help:

    I'm pretty sure that it always comes out in Feb. so it sould be coming up. I don't see a reason that it shouldn't come out.

    not sure when it is scheduled for but there is no reason to think that they won't have one...youngsters playing in the nhl get disqualified from the list, so the lockout has absolutely no impact on the list.

    But the past draft would, so they couldn't use "The list wouldn't be impacted" as an excuse.

    Normally they print it at HN #24.
    Third week of February.

    In 2003 it was Feb. 21st.
    In 2004 it was Feb. 17th.

    I agree it should be fantastic, but somehow I wouldn't be surprised it was cut back.

    Just to put it clear:
    The site was Feb. 9th., but the newspaper w/ Hasek facing Joseph on frontpage was from Feb. 17th. Future watch 2004, ranking hockey`s top 50 prospects.

    ... ah ... gotcha.

    I don't have my old hard copy handy, and I can't remember: How extensive are the write-ups in last year's edition? The site just lists them 1-50.

    The write ups are pretty lame IMO. There are small paragraphs about each teams top 5 and then a sentence about the 5-10. I wish that it would be a little bit more like the draft coverage.

    In the past yes. With the lockout, I've seen it in alot less places then it used to be at.

    The Florida Postal system is so damn slow. They take a week extra to get you a magazine. So I haven't gotten mine (My dad's) yet.

    But thanks for the great news!

    Why would they not have it? As unlikely as it may seem, there is still the very slim chance that the lockout may end, and if so, there will be a draft as scheduled in Ottawa. If there is no season then there will be no draft, but all of the information is still pertinent and valid. Not to worry boys and girls they will have it!
