Here's the 'Skinny' on ESPN Magazine's "The Body Issue"

According to Puck Daddy in a post dated September 30th:
... you obviously already know there are NHL players involved in "The Body Issue." ESPN informed us today that Edmonton Oilers players Sheldon Souray, Ethan Moreau, and Andrew Cogliano were photographed together for the magazine, as was Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara by himself.

(Ed. Note: Bill Guerin
of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Chris Higgins of the New York Rangers, Eric Nystrom of the Calgary Flames and Mike Komisarek of the Toronto Maple Leafs are all also in the issue, according to ESPN, in a featured called "The Sweat Spot" that's different than the photo portfolios.)
So technically, Bill Guerin (and the rest of the hockey players listed after him above) are not appearing naked in the mag, but rather a feature called "The Sweat Spot." SORRY, ladies (I KNOW -- I'm disappointed too), but SHELDON SOURAY -- that MORE than makes up for it!!!!!!!

AND THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU HftL reader, Lizzy C, for sending the "Body Issue" pic of hte Edmonton Oilers because, well -- this deserves a "GOOD CHRIST" as Kena would say -- otherwise, I'M SPEECHLESS (woooooah momma!)!!! And I think the "show-stopper" in this pic is definitely Ethan Moreau (and Souray is showing his age a little, but still looks GREAT)!!!!!

I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts, ladies!!!

My thoughts are not "G"-rated.

Awkward pose for Souray, but Ethan is absolutely perfect. Beautiful, beautiful men.
Why don't they do more body issues? I'll bet never in the history of the magazine will so many women buy an issue for themselves.

As I pick up my tongue off the floor and wipe the drool off my face, a quote from the movie "The Wedding Date" "came" to mind. However, it is not exactly appropriate to post since it's very R-rated.
