Books with insider knowledge?

I'm wondering if anyone knows of any good book written by someone who has worked as GM or other position of management in an NHL team. I figure there should be many such books, but in my years of hockey fandom I've never come across any such book.

Future Greats and Heartbreaks by Gare Joice is also a good behind the scenes look at scouting and the draft, especially now that a couple years have past and you know who is going to be great, and who isn't.

Interesting question as there aren't as many books that I can think of written by former GMs compared to players, refs or even coaches.

I got Gord Stellick's book from the library recently and enjoyed it, despite not even remotely being a Leafs fan. It was a quick read, is very funny in parts and gives a good view as to just how dysfunctional the Leafs were, particularly during the 80's and Ballard years.

That nhlgms.com book looks interesting...but out of my price range unless I hear that it's the most amazing book in the history of the NHL.

I wonder why it is that GM's don't write books? Is it possible that they sign contracts not to reveal certain things ?
