Ultimate Hockey
Do you want to know how hockey was played when there was no forward passing? Do you want to know how strategies developed? You won't find it here. The Weirs and Chapman have compiled a book that is filled with interesting tidbits, and their work in reconstructing who were the best players of the earliest eras of the game of hockey is clearly a labor of love, and their conclusions about the best players seem well founded and carefully considered. It's a good book to have on your shelf. But you won't really learn that much about the development of hockey, and the book is therefore not really in the tradition of Bill James at all. For example, in the player sections at the end of each chapter, the authors sometimes make comparisons between earlier players and contemporary players. In the case of Bill James, these comparisons are based on meticulous research. In the case of Ultimate Hockey, well, it seems to be more impressionistic. Still, the book is worth owning, if only for the story of how the Dawson City Nuggets got to Ottawa in 1905.
A truly wonderful, well-thought out book, with writing that is both witty and fun to read. It is evident that the writers are extreme hockey enthusiasts, due to the plethora of facts presented in a very entertaining manner. This is not just another stat book...the authors provide many interesting tidbits throughout, including anecdotes, player profiles, births, deaths, and nicknames, as well as all the stats you could ever hope for. The chapters cover a decade at a time, which makes it very easy to look up specific information. Plus, each decade has it's own stats and player profiles. I never imagined that I would purchase a hockey history book and be unable to put it down. Kudos to the authors. I highly recommend this book for personal reading or as a gift to any hockey fans you know.
In the grand tradition of Bill James' Baseball Abstracts comes this wonderful book. A knowledgable, thought-provoking trip through the history of hockey. Structured much like the James Abstracts (the authors acknowledge his influence), "Ultimate Hockey" provides anecdotes, player profiles, stats and serious comparisons of great teams and players from the 1880's to the dawn of the 21st century. Fun to read and hard to put down, if one were to own this book and maybe "Total Hockey", it would not be a great exaggeration to call the reference section of one's hockey library complete.
I don't really know what to say ezxcept that I love Ultimate Hockey and want to know more about how the book came about and where it popped out of. I've been an avid sports book reader for many years now and have all the titles out there ... well, almost. I';d have to rank Ultimate Hockey as one of the finest i've ever invested in. Total Hockey was awesome too, but I didn't really have any *fun* reading through it ... it's too big and kind of expensive. Ultimate Hockey gave me and is still giving me alot of enjoyment. Even Total doesn't go back as far as these guys (125 years) in any depth. And to go all the way to Y2K? Well worth the money. good job guys.
