He is currently the director of pro scouting for the Red Wings. He lives in Jackson, New Jersey. Jay Greenberg is a 40-year veteran of newspapers, magazines and websites, including the New York Post, Toronto Sun, Sports Illustrated, Philadelphia Daily News, Philadelphia Evening and Sunday Bulletin, and Kansas City Star.

Obviously there are the stories of growing up in the Howe family, but also insights into the 1972 US Olympic hockey team and the silver medal brought back from Sapporo, on as a "family unit" to the WHA, first with the Aeros, then the Whalers. It was fascinating to read about the chemistry that wasn't there with the Whalers in both the WHA and the NHL.
Mark was probably under appreciated and had to wait too long for Hockey Hall of Fame recognition because he was so versatile, that delayed his development as a defenseman, I am certain.
You can tell a great deal about a person through his relationships with his family, friends and teammates, and you can't help but like Mark even more after reading this.
