The early pictures and details from Panini's first true foray into hockey look extremely impressive and who on earth doesn't like a "hot box"?! I wish every product had the occasional hot box or at the very least something similar to the 90's "hot pack". All in all, it will be interesting to see how Panini will stack up against Upper Deck and their legion of loyal fans.
