its a real good read and gives you a really nice recap of the franchise early history (first 25 or so years) that often gets overlooked. and imo is a MUST read for all ranger fans. ALL rangers fans, no matter how old, should know about boucher, bill & bun cook, ching johnson, lester patrick (and the story of how he came in to play goal as coach in the finals), etc

it might not raise the same level of interest as the more recent years that we all witnessed but i'd highly recommend it to any ranger fan not familar with that early era
