Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Former National Hockey League all-star Bobby Hull has stated that goalies are different. How true, considering what it takes to stand between two pipes and attempt to stop a frozen piece of rubber traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour. Hockey enthusiasts often debate the question, Who are the greatest goalies? Authors Allen (USA Today) and Duff (Hockey Weekly) provide the answer in this book, in which they pick the top 50 goalies and explain why they made the list. The contents are divided into six sections: the rankings, innovators, winners, perfectionists, tragic figures, and underappreciated players. With the exception of former U.S.S.R. sensation Vladislav Trekiak, the book is a who's who of N.H.L. goalies, from Patrick Roy, Turk Broda, and Jacques Plante to Glenn Hall, Ken Dryden, and Terry Sawchuck. The legendary Gordie Howe wrote the foreword, and longtime Toronto Maple Leafs net minder Johnny Bower offers the commentary. Complete with archival photos from the Hockey Hall of Fame, this is essential reading for aficionados of all ages.

Format: Hardcover
"WITHOUT FEAR" by Kevin Allen and Bob Duff is one of the best books ever published on the history of NHL goaltenders. This just published 280 page hard cover coffee table edition is a must for hockey fans of all ages, and especially all those junior goalies out there? The 50 greatest goalies in history are ranked and profiled in great detail. Hockey legend Johnny Bower gives his commentary on each selection as well. One can't argue with the selection of the 50 goalies, but you can have fun with friends, arguing if Patrick Roy[#1 ranked]is the greatest of them all? All the great names of the past and present are here to read about, like Terry Sawchuk, Glenn Hall, Jacques Plante, Ken Dryden, Eddie Giacomin, Tony Esposito, and Gump Worsley just to name a few from the old school. Modern players like Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur, Dominik Hasek, Ed Belfour, Mike Vernon and Curtis Joseph are some of the newer entries. Some of the goalies profiled like Rogie Vachon, Lorne Chabot, Davey Kerr and Roger Crozier were never elected to the hall of fame, but are surely deserving of consideration? I consider this book to be a bible of goaltending history, and a must have book to make any hockey library complete.

Format: Hardcover
If you aren't aware of hockey's great goalies of the 20's thru 60's, this is the book for you. Being older than I care to admit, I saw Crozier, Worsley, Plante (have their autographs), Bower, Hall, Sawchuk & a dozen others who are now little more than a footnote or a color commentator's time-filler. This book will remedy that, giving a good background into some of the most outstanding goalies of the "Golden Age" of hockey. Of particular interest is the categorizing of many of these men as "unsung", "tragic" etc. I'll be referring to it often.
