Klappentext: WINNING. NOTHING ELSE.
In the early 1970s, a young Patrick Roy laced up his hockey skates for the very first time, like thousands of other kids. Thirty years later, he stands as one of the winningest goaltenders of all time. His indomitable will to win and his focus on being the very best brought him four Stanley Cups, three Conn Smythe trophies, three Vézina trophies, and many more individual honors. An incredible hockey talent who was instrumental in changing the very art of goaltending, Roy's success was driven as much by determination and perseverance as by talent.
Patrick Roy: Winning. Nothing Else. brings to life Patrick Roy's phenomenal career, and unmasks his more mysterious personal side. Michel Roy, the father of this great sports legend, reveals what makes Patrick tick, taking us behind the scenes and into the family life of one of the greatest goaltenders of all time: his will to win; the art of protecting the goal; how he revolutionized goaltending by helping to develop and popularize the butterfly style; his role models and inspiration; his relationships with teachers, teammates, and the media, as well as with coaches, agents and other players.
The author holds nothing back as he reveals with drama, tension, and emotion, the blunders, faults and difficulties of the famous goalie, including the heartbreaking move away from Montreal that nearly broke Patrick Roy's spirit. Patrick Roy reveals the man behind the mask-the hopes and disappointments, triumphs and failures, and the all too human side of a man whom many consider the greatest goaltender in the history of hockey.
