It’s our first Versus Issue, where in a cornucopia of categories, we pit the best players, coaches, tournaments, expansion cities, logos and leagues in head-to-head throwdowns to see who comes out on top. The competition includes: Crosby vs. Toews, the Canadiens vs. the Maple Leafs, Eichel vs. McDavid, the NWHL vs. the CWHL, Stamkos vs. Ovehckin, Quenneville vs. Babcock, the AHL vs. the KHL, Las Vegas vs. Quebec, the Olympics vs. the World Cup, and more. Other features in the magazine include: Evander Kane – Winnipeg’s problem is now Buffalo’s solution, but Kane remains bitter about how the Jets (mis)handled him San Jose Sharks at 25 – Original Sharks reflect on the team’s wild and wacky first three years, as San Jose celebrates a quarter century in the NHL The Fix Is In – Stephan Moreau helped develop a new tool to change skate blades, and in the process he began to repair his PTSD Editor’s Notebook – It’s time to take a stand against fighting Inside Hockey – West vs. East is no longer a lopsided fight Team Reports – ‘Sid’ and ‘Nate’ killin’ it in Cole Harbour Prospect Report – Parents’ sacrifice spurred Sprong’s success The Straight Edge – Nowhere to go but up for brutal Badgers Strange But True – Rehashing the worst loss in NHL history Overtime – Nothing rights a wrong like a note from “Mom”
