When the International Hockey League's Cleveland Indians took the ice in 1929, it began a storied professional hockey history that includes one of the most successful American Hockey League teams ever, the Cleveland Barons, who won nine Calder Cup championships in fewer than 40 seasons. In the 1970s, Cleveland was also briefly home to the World Hockey Association's Crusaders and the National Hockey League's Barons.

Very interesting read, I preordered and got mine yesterday before it was "released" and i'm already almost done. Could have used more pictures of some of the old stars but maybe those are hard to get? Very well done writing though.
