Interesting read. Not perfect but a good effort. nice focus on some of the early oilers days.
doesnt pull punches but doesn't seek to blast messier either, simply told the story of a typical person. his triumphs and his mistakes.
a few factual errors here and there but worth reading. certainly better then the Messier book of a few years back.
overall an enjoyable read, even if tends to make Edmonton and Vancouver fans seems like out for blood, skeptical fans and ranger fans seem indifferent.
that was perhaps my biggest problem, he didn't seem to know the cities very well and his views were interesting considering i spent time in both edmonton and ny growing up and don't remember either set of fans being the stereotypes he made them out to be.
Sounds like a cool book! I got a book called "Players" which is like a huge encyclopedia of every player whos ever played in the NHL. It's a wealth of information! If you have time you should go check it out someday.
