Overview

Since the Toronto Maple Leafs were founded in 1927, fifteen men have worn the treasured "C" above their hearts. Now hockey writer Michael Ulmer profiles nine of the best. Here is the inside story on Hap Day, the superb defenceman who became one of hockey's most successful coaches; Syl Apps, an Olympian turned awe-inspiring Leafs legend; Ted Kennedy, who could do everything on the ice but skate; George Armstrong, a dogged and ferocious overachiever; Dave Keon, a polished but problematic dynamo; Darryl Sittler, who held a crumbling sports dynasty together with his tenacity; Rick Vaive, a talented but troubled scoring machine; Wendel Clark, a fierce and courageous combination of brains and brawn; and Doug Gilmour, who by sheer force of will has become one of today's most riveting performers. Captains is a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the men behind the legends, a book no hockey fan will want to miss.
