About this title


A history of the New York Rangers chronicles the dramatic events that preceded moments of failure, from the 1940 payoff of the Madison Square Garden mortgage to the 1994 Stanley Cup win

From Booklist:

The National Hockey League's New York Rangers ended a 54-year drought when they won the league championship in 1994. But even as the final series was being played, the team was coming apart. Head coach Mike Keenan, upset with the owners, was negotiating with other teams, and when management was a day late in getting the coach his bonus money, the paranoid little Napoleon claimed breach of contract and moved on. Meisel, who covers hockey for the New York Daily News, primarily focuses on the championship year, but hockey fans will see the story in terms of what happened later. As Meisel tells it, Keenan wins through the application of constant pressure on his players to perform and on management to acquire players who will buy into his style. This is a fascinating look at a not-particularly-likable man whose charismatic style proves mesmerizing. Though Keenan is the center of the storm, Meisel also provides anecdotes and profiles of all the other key characters in this two-year soap opera. Hockey-fan heaven. Wes Lukowsky
