I never read that mag regularly, most because almost every one of those articles made me think "does this guy actually watch them play?"
Fischler once chastised Mario Lemieux for returning to the NHL, saying among other nonsense that Mario was taking away a roster spot from a deserving young player.
That tells you all you need to know about whether or not anyone should concern themselves about what he has to say.
