Dater even gives us a transcription of what went down when Avs' coach Marc Crawford went infamously ballistic and got in Wings' coach Bowman's face during the '96 playoffs. Given what happened with Brendan Morrison being Crawford's whipping boy when he coached here in Vancouver and the lack of playoff success Cro' had in three other stops in the NHL, I lose even more respect, if I had any, for this "coach."
The book focuses exactly on the games, series and incidents we all remember and skips all the boring bits. It's basically mostly killer and little filler. My only other nitpiking point would be Dater takes long enough to get around to telling us what Stevie Yzerman and Joe Sakic were really like. Then again the title is Blood Feud so the focus is not on the scorers as much it is on the ruffians.
