From the Inside Flap
WHO ARE THE GREATEST PLAYERS IN THE HISTORY OF THE NEW YORK RANGERS?
From the uppermost reaches of Madison Square Garden to the subway platforms below, in living rooms and in taxicabs, it's a debate that's been raging for over eight decades and now continues on the pages of 100 Ranger Greats.
Authors Russ Cohen, John Halligan and Adam Raider scoured the Rangers' all-time roster to bring you the 100 men who each left an indelible mark on the game as a member of New York's "Original Six" hockey club.
From Bill Cook and Lorne (Gump) Worsley to Jaromir Jagr and Henrik Lundqvist, the players who have best exemplified the club motto "pride, passion and tradition" are profiled and ranked in this very special publication created just for Rangers fans, perhaps the most fiercely loyal (and opinionated) fans in all of sports.
Lavishly illustrated and full of colorful anecdotes and compelling facts, 100 Ranger Greats will provoke, entertain, and enlighten Rangers fans of all ages. This could be the most complete history of the Broadway Blueshirts ever written.
