Some of the things are funny such as the Glenn Healey interview and Mike "Gartman". But some are scary.
I think the best hockey book I've ever read (not a Ranger book though) is "The Game" by Ken Dryden.
Agree on Keenan. He was a one way street. He spent the whole season trying to undermine his general manager--treated a lot of players like dirt--Gartner, Amonte, James Patrick, anyone on the black aces, was negotiating a contract with the Red Wings in the middle of the playoffs. It was just a year where everything fit together despite him. Both the Sloman and Meisel books take you into the locker rooms and up close with the players. In Sloman's book he is often scrimmaging with players after practice.
