Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hockey Reading at Christmas, tis no better Season If most people do not know yet, I typically read a hockey book for the holiday season. This year the book was read . It was a little different atmosphere for the read. Most of my readers do not know much about hockey, but Patrick was one of the best goalies ever in the NHL. He was a legend as well as a controversial player because of his style, passion, and winning attitude. He played hockey for the first part of his career in Montreal which is a hot bed of hockey passion and intensity. He later was traded to Colorado where he played on two Stanley Cup winning teams. The book is written by his father which makes it a little bias on the views of the events. Typically the father takes the positive outlook on his son, and really who can blame him. The book is a lovely read because it brings me back to my childhood in Canada. As I read, I remember the events. The book provides some insider looks on the feelings, the passion to win, and what really made Patrick great all those years. By the end of the book, Patrick was an enduring figure in my life. It inspired me to "Win, nothing else."
