Sloman really gets his subjects to speak and spill the beans. He ghost wrote Scar Tissue the Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chili Peppers Bio and my goodness are there controversial and messed up stories in that one.

I remember reading a little of Thin Ice in the mid 90s when I was in 8th grade the year after the Cup and there was a line by JD how he couldn't "make love" to his wife or he'd have crappy games.

What season does this book cover? Like 79-80? I'd love to know more about the infamous Rangers-Kings 81 playoff brawl and how that team came pretty darn close to winning it all.
