Содержание:
1. Hockey is more than a game. It's more than a way of life. In Canada, it's a portrait of who we are. It's a window into our very soul. In The Meaning of Puck, best-selling author Bruce Dowbiggin takes a peek into that window and-frankly-it's not always such a pretty picture. Viewed through the prism of hockey, Canada is--Dowbiggin argues-a land of compelling and surprising... even ugly and embarassing contradictions. In a series of essays that is a road trip across the nation's cultural landscape, he shows how the national passion of hockey reflects-or deflects-the issues of globalization, regionalism, anti-Americanism, militarism, violence, racism and greed. Why are Canadians, for instance, such strenuous advocates of pacifism and non-militarism around the world while simultaneously embracing - and promoting - the world's most vicious and violent brand of hockey? As the legion of apologists for Todd Bertuzzi's thuggish play dramatize, it's not the Americans who popularize violence...

The Great Expansion: The Ultimate Risk that Changed the NHL Forever

It was March 1965 when Clarence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League, emerged from a long board meeting and announced that the NHL would double in size beginning with the 1967-68 season. Fans loyal to the "Original Six" were furious. Owners were irate. In The Great Expansion: The Ultimate Risk that Changed the NHL Forever, hockey expert Alan Bass profiles the power brokers and provides an in-depth study of the decision and its revolutionary impact on the game. Bass, a former hockey player and freelance sports writer, relies on thorough research, interviews, and first-person accounts in order to reach into the past and uncover the mystery of a behind-closed-doors decision that seemed improbable at the time. As he profiles the powerful owners, media moguls, and die-hard sportsmen involved in the politics and backroom dealings, Bass shares a never-before-seen glimpse into how the decision forever impacted professional hockey in North America. The Great...

Miracles, Shockers, and Long Shots: The Greatest Sports Upsets of All Time

From fond memory or through the film Miracle most Americans know about the stunning upset of the Soviet Union by the underdog U.S.A hockey team at the 1980 Olympics-engagingly retold in this book--but after this most unlikely of achievements, what do the authors consider to be the top twenty sports upsets of all time? Their answers in this entertaining volume will surprise some, perhaps appear obvious to others, but will no doubt prove to be fodder for bar-room arguments and spirited debate over sports talk radio. Ranking the miracle at Lake Placid in 1980 as the hands-down greatest sports upset ever, the authors go on to describe nineteen others whose ranking may prove to be more controversial.

Nine: A Salute to Mr. Hockey Gordie Howe

Through unique photographs and words, this book captures what Gordie Howe has meant to a storied franchise, teammates, a legion of loyal fans and the entire hockey world. Mr. Hockey shattered scoring records and established himself as the face of the game during his 26 seasons in the National Hockey League. Howe won four Stanley Cups, six Hart Trophies as league MVP, and six scoring titles. Following his playing days in Detroit, Howe was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1972, but returned to hockey to play with his sons for two additional pro seasons. Famous for his fierce elbows, uncanny scoring ability and legendary charisma, Howe retired with 801 goals, 1,049 assists and 1,850 points - all NHL records at the time.

Fearless: Pro Hockey's Most Fearless

There are few sports that are faster or more physically punishing than professional hockey. There are also few sports that can claim to have produced such a rugged, fearless brand of athlete. While great stick-handling skills and play-making ability have always had their place on the ice, it is important to remember that hockey is a team sport, and a physical one at that. The winning team is always the physically dominant team - or, to personalize the issue: Mark Messier has won more Stanley Cups than Wayne Gretzky or Pavel Bure. Call them character players, grinders, power-forwards - whatever term you wish - today's hockey has produced an unparalleled group of strong, tough and talented players. Athletes such as Brendan Shanahan, Eric Lindros, Keith Tkachuk and of course Mark Messier play the game in a demanding, physical way. All are talented goal scorers, all can skate as well as any player in the league, all deliver punishing body checks and take an enormous amount of...
