Anyone who’s gotten to the NHL the hard way has a story to tell. No one understands the game better than the guys on the fourth line who fight for their jobs every night. They know all too well what it’s like to watch from the press box or, worse, to be sent to the minors or traded. Sean Pronger has seen it all. He’s played for legendary coaches such as Pat Burns and gone head to head with Doug Gilmour and Steve Yzerman in the faceoff circle. He was on the ice for perhaps the most notoriously violent attack in recent hockey history. While playing in the minors in Winnipeg, he guzzled beer in an ice-fishing hut with grizzled veterans like John MacLean, and he caused international incidents with Doug Weight while playing in Europe. But none of that went to his head.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Canucks stories were great...rest meh For the Vancouver Canucks' stories alone this is worth picking up. Loved learning the background behind the whole Kevin Bieksa bopping minor league teammate Fedor Fedorov. Certainly to learn what went on beyond the media reports in the Todd Bertizzi on-ice assault on Steve Moore was worth the price of admission. The rest though is nothing spectacular to read about as it mostly consists of the drudgery of being in the minors.
