No current Talk conversations about this book.
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385156626, Hardcover)The Patrick family is the greatest dynasty in Canada's national game, innovators who introduced the blue line, player numbers and the modern playoff system.
The dynasty began in British Columbia where Joe Patrick made a fortune in lumber, gambling it all by starting up a spunky west coast professional hockey league with his sons Lester and Frank--in 1911! After selling the league to the NHL in 1926, Lester went on to become the first coach of the New York Rangers. His sons, Lynn and Muzz, were New York stars before becoming coaches themselves. In 1980, the Patrick dynasty continued as ex-NHL player Craig (son of Lynn) was appointed Rangers coach.
Tracing the development of an influential hockey dynasty in great detail, The Patricks: Hockey's Royal Family offers a lively, colourful account of the game's exciting history.
