Chicago Blackhawks Young Guns: Marian Hossa, Cristobel Huet, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews on the Cover of ESPN the Magazine’s

Last year, the playoff run by the resurgent Blackhawks,

lead by a talented young core including cover

athletes Marian Hossa, Cristobel Huet, Patrick Kane and Jonathan

Toews, was one of the most compelling stories in hockey. But after a

summer of woes - failing to re-sign top players Nikolai Khabibulin and

Martin Havlat, the firing of GM Dale Tallon, Patrick Kane’s

legal troubles and Hossa’s unfortunate rotator cuff injury – many

are wondering if the young team is back to square one. In “Winded

City?,” in the new issue of ESPN The Magazine on sale now,

writer Lindsay Berra takes a look at what the Hawks have on their

plate this fall, including their chances of rebounding—again.

Additional NHL

preview features include, Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin?

Writer Eric Adelson seeks to answer what hockey fans have been debating

for years – and The Magazine’sNHL Power Rankings.

All 30 teams are ranked according to shootouts, injury, defense,

goaltending, 5-on-5 and more to create a scientific prognostication of

which teams are dominant and which teams are desperate.

PLAYER X

In his third column for The Magazine, “Player X,” an

anonymous NFL

star, gives rookie players a veteran’s perspective on hazing.

  • “Believe it or not, though, there’s a purpose to this idiotic

    stuff: It’s an initiation into a culture of respect for the men who

    played before you…We want to see how you respond when things get

    unpredictable, when the tension is high. Because that’s life in the

    NFL.”

  • “Every team has its bullies, the guys who enjoy pushing people

    around just to see how far they can take it. When I was a rookie, I

    didn’t resent it. I just treated it as part of the game.”

ADDITIONAL FEATURES IN THE NFL PREVIEW:
