Inhaltsangabe: Hockey players aren't boring people-- they just play them on TV, where they give notoriously dull post-game interviews loaded with sports cliches and lacking in any real substance. Dig a little deeper, however, and you find that while hockey may not be the quotation bonanza that is baseball, it is nonetheless a major sport populated by lots of clever, quotable people. "Max Pacioretty is the most unselfish, two-way sniper in the league. He's the anti-Phil Kessel." (Jack Todd) "The things that go into winning don't change, but the way in which you get there is never the same." (Sidney Crosby) "There you go again, 'Whoever scores the first goal is going to win the game.' Let's wash that one out. It doesn't make a difference." (Pat Burns) Modern Hockey Quotations is a big, readable collection of quotes, quips and passages about hockey by players, coaches, general managers, writers, owners and others, most of whom are directly involved in the National Hockey League today or had been going back no further than the mid 1970s. Featuring some five hundred selections from and about the likes of Steven Stamkos, John Tavares, Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, P.K. Subban and Carey Price (along with over one hundred other players, many still active), Modern Hockey Quotations includes sections devoted to topics relevant to modern hockey fans such as the NHL entry draft, playoff hockey, lockouts, concussions and more. Compiled and edited by Ross Bonander, a seasoned quotations curator with over a dozen books to his name, this collection will appeal not only to hockey fans as a fun, easy read, but also to hockey writers, bloggers, and other members of the media looking for reliably sourced quotes from and about the biggest names in hockey over the last four decades.
