Montreal's Hockey HeroesBook - 2003
Like baseball's New York Yankees and basketball's Boston Celtics, hockey's Montreal Canadiens are the most storied franchise in their sport. Winners of the Stanley Cup 24 times, the team's legend encompasses such superstars as Howie Morenz in the early days, Rocket Richard in the 1950s, and Guy Lafleur in the 1970s. Well-known sportswriter Mike Leonetti lovingly details that history, with nearly 100 player profiles and more than 300 historic and contemporary photos. This lavishly illustrated look at Montreal's hockey heroes from 1909 to 2004 also includes guest essays by Dave Stubbs, Frank Orr, and Red Fisher.
