    Introducing coverage for all 31 NHL teams: The Athletic is...

    Nice. And it's been a good read for me this past year.

    There are folks unable to get the scratch together to pay for a subscription. But there are often discounts out there available if you look. (31% available at the moment; and my referral seems to be worth 25%.)

    Seems to be a lot better (in depth, frequency, persistence) reporting with at least one pundit for each team than THN ever was.

    (I know there are a few Athletic folks who have accounts on HFB.)

    Congrats on the milestone. Here's to great coverage.

    Seems like it's a publication getting a lot of good play as of late. Good stuff.

    I hopped on a 'Welcome to Athletic, Seattle' special when they first came here. It was 30% off and felt a good value (40$ for one year). The national coverage is amazing, The local coverage has been really good, although a few sports were missing at launch.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see some new/additional coverage on the AHL teams. (Perhaps not a 1-1 reporter to team, but I could see someone covering Barracuda-Heat, Reign-Gulls, with perhaps single reporter (part time) coverage of Eagles, Condors, Road Runners. And perhaps 4 or so reporters for other divisions as well.)
