From tales of the games greats (Guy Lafleur, Jean Beliveau, Marcel Dionne) to todays stars (Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Daniel and Henrik Sedin), his magazine and newspaper coverage has revealed so much about these and so many other personalities, in moments of promise, victory and defeat. While many of these stories play out on the ice, some of the most compelling take place on the home front (Mario Lemieuxs battle against cancer, the many tribulations of Bob Gainey), and MacGregors prose shines especially when focused on the human side of a sport defined by superhuman feats of speed, aggression and power.Wayne Gretzkys Ghost will be a personal book, and also a book of challenging ideas: that Wayne Gretzky, through no fault of his own, was the worst thing to happen to hockey- that CBCs Hockey Night in Canada has lost sight of what it is- that goaltending has become a position out of all proportion to what was intended.

And who could offer a better perspective on the game than a writer who, playing as a youngster, had to face an onrushing phenom from Parry Sound named Bobby Orr, or who spent a year ghostwriting a national newspaper column for the Great One himself?

When it comes to hockey, Roy MacGregor has seen (and in some cases, done) it all.From the Hardcover edition.
