Ovie Makes One More Cover...

This is wacked, but Hockey Mom loves to get the mail! With the exception of the never-ending barrage of bills, every now and then you find a really fun surprise in your mailbox. Think the latest issue of Vogue, a note from a long-lost friend, a Half-Off Sale notice from DSW Shoes and in today's case...The Hockey News 2008-2009 Yearbook. And you'll never guess who's on the cover? Who else but the Capital's own Alex Ovechkin. He shares the cover with fellow NHL poster boy Vincent LeCavalier of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This is a fabulous issue with editorial features on both Alex and Mike Green. THN also gives a complete pre-season rundown (roster, depth chart, season schedule and much more) on each team, which is handy dandy information for all of you new hockey fans out there. The Caps earned the prediction of ending up 3rd in the Eastern Conference at season's end, along with an A- team rating (what's with the A-?).

I have to admit, this mailbox surprise might actually be better than a DSW Sale notice! Well, okay, maybe not so much. But it's a phenomenal resource to get you primed for the season and ladies, if you see it on the news stands, THN's 2008-09 Yearbook definitely gets the official Hockey Mom Seal of Approval...

It was a great issue, and I was thrilled to read two articles about Washington Capitals. Here's the beef I've got with THN: Why the hell is Crosby sill listed as the number 1 player in the world, while Ovechkin sits at #2??? I'll bet if you ask all the GMs in the league which they'd rather have on their team, 3/4 of them will say OV. Sid the kid acts like a spoiled kid, while OV still acts like he loves every minute of playing in the NHL. OVs attitude is contagious, while Sid's cry baby attitude is infectious, in the wrong way.
