Default Random Question

Hereís a random question for the ĎDog Daysí of the off-season:
Whatís your favourite hockey book? Iím not talking skills, drills, and coaching - I mean a good hockey book to sit poolside, or at the cottage, or the campground.
In no particular order, hereís a few of my faves:
- The Game by Ken Dryden
- Quinn by Dan Robson(the former voice of the Vancouver Canucks)
- 99 stories of the Game by Wayne Gretzky
- Uncle Johnís Bathroom Hockey Reader

What makes your list?

Bobby Orr My Story
I loved Bobby Orr, I have to pick up this book. I remember watching him as a little kid when my dad watched the Bruins. Reminds me of all those old players, Middleton, Cheevers, O'Reily, etc.

There are a couple books in the ‘Crossing the line’ series isn’t there? Think Kadri is a better selling author than Radko Gudas lol. Love how the Toronto media would call out Gudas for his dirtyness and how he doesn’t belong in the league ... meanwhile nothing like that is mentioned about Kadri’s transgressions

SO GLAD THE LEAFS ARE OUT!!!!!!

Nothing makes me happier then seeing the Maple Leafs self implode in yet another game 7 first round series against the Bruins. Wonder what Marner's contract will cost Toronto, that Leaf wallet will be thin by September $$$$ .Ö..Nazem Kadri is Toronto's version of the Ice Dogs Kirill Maksimov. Both players do dumb selfish things at critical times in a game to cost the team

Here’s how I see this playing out:
It happened in a relatively short time span. New York Rangers 54- year Cup drought - 1994
Detroit Red Wings: 42 years. 1997.
The two longest Cup droughts’ end left the Leafs with the longest one: 1967. I believe as soon as the Leafs’ drought length overtakes that of the Rangers, the Leafs will win the Stanley Cup. And we’re coming up on that soon. As soon as the drought reaches 55 years, it’s going to happen. So if 2017 marks 50 years, look for the Leafs to be serious Cup contenders as of 2022. It will be hilarious to see how ‘Leafs Nation’ reacts to the mantle of the longest Stanley Cup drought is passed on to Toronto.
You probably remember all the NYI and NJ fans chanting ‘Nineteen Forty!’ I don’t know if ‘Sixty Seven!’ has quite the same ring to it, but it’s going to be fun to chant

I read the Hammer by Dave Schultz. After I read it I talked to Bruce Beaudrea (spelling) and he played at the same time as Schultz. He said he read the book and it was 100% bull___t. Schultz was not forced to play the way he did, he chose to play that way. Probably the only way he stayed in the league. Different time back then.
Other hockey books that are worth the read IMO are,Heart of the Blackhawks (Pierre Pilot), and Howe, My last fight (Darren McCarty) and Tough guy (BOB Probert)
Just remembered another one, Quinn (Pat Quinn story).

TOUGH GUY about Bob Probert was *great*. Especially being a huuuuge fan of the fighters back in the 90s.

I also have Tie Domi's "Shift Work" (signed by him too) which was good (for Domi fans at least) but Proberts was really good. Wow what a life that guy had. Chaos.
