If you really want to learn about the early decades of the Rangers, this is the book to get.

Worth every penny, despite whatever condition the books are in.
Utterly agree, one of my fav books.

It is a disgrace that this franchise has chosen to ignore its foundation. But that is the current regime - they only made revenue-based decisions and how much can be made by recognizing the old guys when few fans know who they are? On a nightly basis at least half the Garden, if not more, has no idea who Potvin was and why he sucks - much less who Frank Boucher, Bill Cook, et. al. were.

My only hope is that they are given some recognition during the centennial season (which will mistakenly be 25-26 rather than 26-27, going by the 85th anniv nonsense).
