Snarky hockey insider with integrity dished out juicy stories from a somewhat dysfunctional industry & its very human players.

am hoping that it will be a good xmas gift purchase for a hockey fan....many short (one page or less) tales of incidents in NHL and other Canadian hockey over the decades...like the Reuters overhead camera that fell on the ice and just missed the goalie...and the night of the crazy zamboni...
