PLAYING HOCKEY THE PROFESSIONAL WAY

Both these Ranger stars have writing experience (Gilbert -- Goal! My Life on Ice; Park -- Play the Man) and that's helpful here but more important is their collective playing know-how, imparted unpretentiously but authoritatively as they glide across the blue line to discuss offensive strategy and techniques (Rod's department -- he's an aggressive forward) and the skills needed to stop the opposition (Brad's one of the very best defensemen this side of a guy named Orr), set up plays, advise on player conditioning and equipment, and offer sound warnings to the young skater, e.g. ""We both are great believers in position hockey -- that is, avoidance of roaming all over the ice"" (unless of course you're a kid named Hull). There are a number of how-to hockey manuals around and this one gives and goes with the best of them.
