For hockey fans of a certain vintage, this book is a wonderful trip down memory lane. It was such a different time for hockey back then and our collective experience in the twenty years since makes so many of the stories Denault relates all the more remarkable. This was truly an amazing, unparallelled year for hockey and the author documents it admirably.

The research poured into the book is impressive. Denault is a sound hockey scholar who mined old hockey articles, newspapers and magazines as w

The writing in this book wasn't spectacular, but Denault did do his homework, interviewing dozens of players, coaches, GM's, journalists, and people involved in the game. I felt this book would've been better presented as TV documentary of interviews and game highlights. Even though this book does not merit any awards in sports journalism, it was nonetheless a fun trip down memory lane for anybody who was a fan of the game at the time.

One is particularly struck by the sheer number of historic m

This author deserves a lot of credit for all the research he did for this book. It is one of the few sports books where I didn't notice any errors in dates or years of things happening.

I wish he would have gotten reflections from more of the players looking back on that season. But I'm sure access to Lemiuex and Lindros would be tough.

Overall I enjoyed this book and would recommend it for and hockey or sports fan.

This book felt like it was born out of the idea to write a book about the 92-93 Leafs with details on the rest of the season filled in from there, with too many dull Doug Gilmour and Pat Burns quotes taking up unnecessary space to make the book enjoyable. It's okay reading for hockey fans looking to fill the void of hockey during the summer, but unless you have a strong affinity for the 92-93 season there's much better options out there.

A great hockey read about the last great offensive season in the NHL: '92/'93. This was around the time when I first started to get into hockey (I'd attend my first Caps game in December of '93), so the events that are described in this book really took me back.

From the explosion of goalscorers, to Mario Lemieux's battle with Hodgkin's disease, through the entire 1993 playoff run, this book captures everything in a nutshell, and does it well. It truly was the end of an era.

It was interesting and fun to go back and relive one of the last great hockey seasons although suffering through the Pens early departure to the Isles was still tough. A lot of names and good stories but it felt like I was reading the world's longest ever newspaper article wrapping up a season, not a game.
Exhaustively researched and well put together, the book revolves around one of the most interesting hockey campaigns in the NHL's history. The writing itself wasn't special, I am more impressed by the comprehensiveness of his research. The many officials, players, coaches, journalists who weigh in on various events make the facts come to life.

92/93 was the year i got into the NHL. Snes version of NHL was being played around the clock and we without any NHL broadcasting in sweden and this being way before the internet ages we followed games via teletext.
This book brings me back to those days and gives me lot more information and duels that was unavailable to us due to lack of information.

A LOT of detail. More than your average hockey fan (like me) can grasp. Still, a decent read, and I picked up a few trivia bits that I didn't know.

An amazing recollection of the awesome 1992-93 NHL hockey season. The last best season.
