Summary
From bestselling author and Hall of Fame player Ken Dryden comes the unparalleled life story of the greatest coach in hockey history, Scotty Bowman. Scotty Bowman is universally heralded as the greatest coach in hockey history, and is widely regarded as one of the best coaches in all of sports. He holds the record for most wins and most Stanley Cups as a head coach and is the only NHL coach to lead three different teams to a championship. He has seen all of hockey's great players--from "The Rocket" to Gordie Howe to the young stars that play today--and has witnessed firsthand what makes a team click. However, for all of his accomplishments and his legendary stature in the game of hockey, we know very little about who Scotty Bowman is. Now, Hall of Fame player and the former goaltender of Scotty's Montreal Canadiens team, Ken Dryden, takes us inside the mind of hockey's ultimate coach. We see Scotty as a child in his hometown of Verdun, Quebec, as a teenager racing to a spot in the old Montreal Forum to witness Richard's scoring prowess, and as an up and coming hockey mind, tapped on the shoulder to follow in the footsteps of the legendary Montreal coach Toe Blake. Interwoven through the narrative of Scotty's life story are the profiles of the eight best teams in NHL history in Bowman's eyes, as the coach describes what makes these particular teams stand out from the rest. And, because it's in a coach's competitive nature, these eight teams are pitted against one another in a winner-take-all tournament, where Scotty will determine once and for all which team is the greatest team in NHL history, and why
