Win, Tie, or Wrangle - The Inside Story of the Old Ottawa Senators


Just picked this up at the STH sale today. Can't wait to read it. Must have just came out, as the foreward by Melnyk is dated October 2008. I have the day off tomorrow, supposed to study....gonna be hard not to burn through this one.

Anyways, if anyone is interested, its a hardcover by Paul Kitchen. Its printed by Oenumbra Press and was $54.99 before the sale.

This book is so much more than a book about hockey heroes and game accounts. It is also in many ways a time-period history of society in Ottawa, and even in Canada.

This book is probably the best kept secret of the 2008 hockey book season. It is a late entry into the market, without much publicity or a national audience. In fact I only found out about the book in late November. But when I got my review copy I could not put it down. It is a fascinating, incredibly researched, and well written history of not just hockey in Ottawa, but hockey's origins and Canadian history in general.

Well, the sale is over. It was 30% off.

Im sure it is like $10 less at Chapters or somewhere like that though.

Oooo, I know what's going on my Christmas list this year.

You can get directly from Penumbra Press for $47.25 (free shipping on orders > $40) which seems like a decent deal.

Even better, Brittons on Bank St. in the Glebe has it for $45. I picked it up today (little faith that anyone would go to the trouble to seek it out for me for Christmas...so it's a present to myself!).
