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.

An amazing recollection of the awesome 1992-93 NHL hockey season. The last best season.
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.
This author deserves a lot of credit for all the research he did for this book. It is also 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.
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.

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.
