fear no man, even if it's a loudmouth threatening to beat the h--- out of you
Billing itself as "the world's no. 1 selling hockey magazine," Hockey Illustrated appears to have been a mix of opinions from prolific hockey writer Stan Fischler, player profiles, colour action spreads and muscle-building/training school ads. The cover feature of this issue was a look at the 1970/71 NHL All-Star squads, with Gordie Howe as cover boy. Other articles included Fischler bemoaning the continuing inability of the New York Rangers to win a Stanley Cup and the league's executive power shift from Canada to New York, the step-by-step process to produce a goalie mask, Kent Douglas's irritation at winding down his career in the minors and profiles of Dave Balon, Bill Goldsworthy and Jacques Laperriere.
