Overview

From the leader in sports writing comes a collection of stories that examine just about every aspect of the game: the players, the league and what it means to the fans.

For true hockey fans, there is no sport as great, as fast, as competitive, or as important as their beloved hockey game. The teams, the organizations, and the players are a part of their family and Saturday night is better known as hockey night. As children, we hockey fans would wake at 6am, jump into the back of a cold station wagon and head off with Dad or Mom at the wheel to our hockey games. Sleep deprived, cold and tired - it didn't matter how low we felt because as soon as those skates were laced, it was game-on! We traded the cards, we followed the players, and we watched as our team fought through the regular season to earn their rightful place in the post season. There is nothing like the feeling of seeing your team go all the way, seeing them hoist that cherished Cup that Lord Stanley so kindly gifted to the Dominion of Canada, seeing the tears in the eyes of these grown men, these ice warriors. We love this game of ours, and we can't get enough, so thank you Sports Illustrated for bringing us more.

In this book, Sports Illustrated's most prolific hockey writers give us the honest goods on hockey. They tell us about the players, the infractions, the best series, the most contentious of battles and the most glorious of victories. This is hockey in its truest form. This is hockey writing for hockey lovers and with an array of Sports Illustrated photos throw in for added benefit. This is just about the best damn book available on hockey, anywhere, period.

Ok I admit from early September to the beginning of July are the best months of the year for me---why--HOCKEY is alive and well. July to early September is lonely and boring! Again---why---no to HOCKEY, ok, hockey addicts will be feed a tidbit here and there, a trade may take place now and then. What is an addict to do? Read hockey books, delve into story lines, facts, oddities, stories about the greats of the hockey world, foibles, and behind the bench and in the locker room antics. Amen for authors who are kind enough to bring us HOCKEY all year round.
