Sports Illustrated gave their site a nice little facelift. They’re also running some NHL preview packages.
There are some interesting choices so far, too.
Like for the Islanders. SI calls Alexei Yashin the team’s “go-to guy.” Go to him for what? For money? Because he has all of the Islanders’ money?
The Rangers preview is also a little odd. SI imagines a top line of Jamie Lundmark, Eric Lindros, and Alex Kovalev. I can’t imagine Kovalev will spend much time with anyone but Petr Nedved. Lindros and Kovalev have two completely different playing styles. And Lundmark is still pretty green to be on the top line.
But go on and see for yourself.
