    Meaner than your uncle who ended someone’s career? We’ll see. And as for the Body issue: Only one hockey player! Sad. Sydney Lerioux of Women’s US soccer is going to be in it. IMO, if there’s any US Women’s soccer player that should be in it, it should be Alex Morgan hands down.

    Man, those are awful comparisons. Brian Campbell’s a one-way D and he’s compared to Scott freaking Niedermayer? Jamie Benn compared to Shanahan?

      You’ve gotta be joking.
