This is a good book I can remember hockey in the 70s and it gives good insight to the goings on Especially, liked the chapter on Allan Eagleson and how he ripped off the players in collusion with the owners Stole money from the Canada Cups which was suppose to go to the players pension Supported the Cleveland Barons for one year on players pension money Park was one of the best d men in game and his pension is only 13,000 a year.As a big time Habs fan like the chapter on hate the Habs Playoffs those years were some of best moments of my youth Like Park said in the book, Habs had 11 hall of famers, Bruins had 3 I think Boston was able to push Montreal to brink on elimination with togetherness and hard work I was real glad of trade in 75, to the Bruins Rangers at that time was hated in Montreal They beat us out of playoffs in 72 and 74 We knew once the trade was made Rangers would never be the same and opened it up for Habs.Park mentions writing an early book with Stan Fischler also Around the early 70s I would like to find a copy as it most likely is a good read.
