    Hello you all!

    I've had the book for a couple of days now.

    The presentations are great, not to mention the pictures!

    What I would like to have seen more, are the statistical things.

    Anyway, it was definitely worth waiting!

    What do you other people think?

    All the best
    Jukka

    To be honest, I was a bit disappointed. I expected more.

    Though it does contain the most topical and comprehensive range of topics as of yet, I found I still had to top up the information about Swiss hockey up to the 1980ies with the help of Vico and Lelio Rigassi's 'Eishockey in der Schweiz und in aller Welt'.

    On the other hand, the set up and the illustrations are great.
    Up The Irons!

(That was in 2006. He went on playing professionally till the end of the 2008/09 season.)
