"I was 14 when I lost my front teeth. The main thing was, we won the game. You hate to lose your teeth and the game too."  Bill Barber

Hockey Talk - Quotations About the Great Sport of Hockey, From The Players and Coaches Who Made It Great is a unique and inspired collection that includes over 350 quotations about every aspect of the great game of hockey-toughness, teamwork, scoring, goaltenders, the Stanley Cup and much, much more.  And it includes quotations from and about legendary players like Lindsay, Gretzky, and Lemieux; legendary yappers like Cherry and  Melrose; and legendary players and yappers like Brett Hull, Phil Esposito and Patrick Roy.

- Who has been called "the best one-armed player in the game"? (hint: he's still playing)

- Who did legendary Soviet coach Anatoli Tarasov consider to be the "greatest hockey player in the world"? (hint: he wasn't Russian)

- Who was once called "a gap-toothed diabetic rink rat with the guts of 10 dozen burglars"? (hint: nowadaws he's a team executive)

- And who was told at training camp that he should just go home because he would "never be a hockey player"? (Big hint: He goes by Mr. Hockey these days … )

Hockey Talk - Quotations About the Great Sport of Hockey, From The Players and Coaches Who Made It Great also quotes some of the most exciting moments from the great voices of the game, the play-by-play broadcasters whose calls can still give us goosebumps, including names recognized across North America such as Danny Gallivan, Doc Emrick and Chris Cuthbert, as well as local legends like Rick Jeanneret, Al Shaver, and Mike Lange.

You'll find all of this and so much more in Hockey Talk - Quotations About the Great Sport of Hockey, From The Players and Coaches Who Made It Great.

"No game makes you think 'Oh this is good, this is good—Oh, this is bad, this is bad' as much as hockey." Justin Bourne
