Fisher, a sports reporter for the Montreal Gazette, has covered sports in Canada since 1954, so he was on the scene when the Montreal Canadiens put together their unparalleled string of five successive Stanley Cups from 1956 to 1960 and as the popularity of hockey expanded. In this chatty. anecdotal memoir, he recalls the great players he has seen from Maurice Richard to Wayne Gretzky. He considers Bobby Orr the best he ever watched on the ice, and his dream team would be composed of Orr and Doug Harvey on defense, Getzky, Bobby Hull and Gordie Howe on the line and Jacques Plante in goal. Fisher also includes reminiscences of team owners, general managers and coaches, which are not particularly interesting and smack of mere name-dropping. Still, his book will have great appeal for fans over the age of 50. Photos. (Mar.)
