Gonna buy one.. He's an AWESOME individual that understands the game and the passion of that great game of hockey.

He's a very good, unbiased journalist. One of the reason was, if I remember well, an Islanders fan in the early 80'. But not now, trust me.

I just read the entire book in 1 evening. If you like hockey, you'll like that book.
If you're involved in minor hockey, you'll LOVE that book.

Basically they all have the same thought; let kids have fun and coaches should remember it's only a game.

It's fun to read, entertaining.

The Simon Gagné/Alain Vigeault part made me laugh a lot!

Bégin and Bouillon are 2 very special individuals. They went through a lot before "making it to the Big league". So much respect for those guys.

I'll wait before giving a though about the book until I read it tho, he is a good journalist, just not good enough english speaker to do intermission interviews.

Frankly not sure about the "good journalist" part. I haven't seen it. I hear him all the time in french and I keep waiting for him to say something new. Something I did not already know.

Well to be fair lately (the last year or two) he keeps breaking stories after stories, and event though they're mostly about Québécois, he breaks them before TSN. He's our Bob McKenzie right now.

Right.. A lot better than Renaud Lavoie.

And Luc Gélinas can evaluate a situation, give information without being a homer.
