Ed,

This was a great series. In many cases the quality of the hockey was better than that of 1972. And that was because Billy Harris did such a fine job preparing Team Canada for the series.

I hope you get the book and enjoy it. I interviewed Rick Smith and Brad Selwood among the Canadians and they both told me playing in the 1974 Summit was the pinnacle of their careers. (And Smith won a Stanely Cup in 1970 with Boston!)
