Rate this:
In their glorious history, the Montreal Canadiens have won twenty-four Stanley Cups. Of all the players who put on the fabled bleu, blanc, et rouge, only twenty-two have worn the captains's C, the embodiment of the Canadiens spirit. Now hockey writer Michael Ulmer profiles nine of the best: Toe Blake, the tenacious workhorse of the dazzling Punch Line; Butch Bouchard, the tough-as -nails defenseman who led by example; Maurice Richard, perhaps the most electrifying player of all time; Doug Harvey, among the greatest defensemen in hockey history; Jean Beliveau, the brilliant center who made winning look effortless; Henri Richard, small in stature, giant in desire and triumph; Yvan Cournoyer, the free-spirited and charismatic winger; Bob Gainery, the quintessential role player; and Pierre Turgeon, the current captain, dogged by the great expectations of a team in transition. Canadiens Captains is an insider's behind-the-scenes look at the on-ice leaders of hockey's most storied franchise, a must read for Canadiens fans and hockey fans of every persuasion.
