One documentary and one book that don't get the attention they deserve

I remember CBC's "A Year in the Life of the NHL". I can remember taping every one of those segments on VHS. I loved them. The crazy thing about that is you can look back at stuff. This was in 1998 and they profiled an up and comer and it was Jarrett Stoll. I will never forget the comment they made saying: "A lot of people say he's the next Wayne Gretzky". The rest of the documentary was good too. Lots of following Ron Wilson and the Capitals.
As for documentaries not mentioned yet I would say "Forever Rivals". It was done in 1996 and profiled the all-time rivalry of the Habs and Leafs. It featured former player interviews and recapped the whole career of each franchise and the big moments when they faced each other. Really well done.
Books for me would be "Let's Talk Hockey 50 Wonderful Debates." A classic popcorn read type of book. Easy to read, and like a candy store for hockey junkies.
