This book probably never would have been written without the owners' lockout which led to the cancelled 2004-05 season.  Missing the fastest game in the world and my team, the Maple Leafs,  I instead spent many cold and quiet winter nights last season wondering just who were the greatest Leaf players of all-time.  What started out as a search for a method of ranking the players evolved into a need to justify the results by organizing all the biographical and statistical data into one place and this is what came out of the research.  Interlacing many action segments with the facts, this is an attempt to make sports bios more entertaining and scintillating, as well as to illuminate the great moments in the history of the team.  Dating back to 1927, Toronto's team has a rich history integral to that of the NHL and this epistle is a must for all hockey fans, not just fans of the Leafs.  So come read about the legendary names of both the past and the present such as Johnny Bower, Busher Jackson, Dave Keon, The Big M, Ed Belfour, Bill Barilko and many, many more.

About the author (2005)

I grew up in rural southwesten Ontario a huge fan of the Maple Leafs since 1960.  After studying mathematics and attending the University of Waterloo, I lived and worked in Kitchener for ten years.  In the early 1980s I moved to British Columbia and lived in Kelowna, in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, for almost 20 years and earned a diploma at Okanagan University.  I now live in Calgary where I work in the oil exploration industry.  Like all hockey fans, I was relieved that the new CBA was finally settled and can't wait for the 2005-06 season to start.
