1 Review
Few professional athletes have been as loved and respected as Jean Bliveau, captain of the fabled Montreal Canadiens during the team's glory years in the 1950s and 1960s. His career on ice was followed by an equally successful career in the Canadiens' front office. First published in 1994, this classic biography has been fully updated to reflect the events of the past decade, from his battle with cancer to his frank assessment of the game today, including the consequences of expansion and the fallout from a cancelled season.
