2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 2 2013
Format: Hardcover
Sean Pronger really never registered with me that he had a short stint on the Vancouver Canucks let alone was originally drafted by the same team. Thank whomever that he did because in his book we not only get the full story on the famous (infamous?) Fedor Fedorov vs. Kevin Bieksa fight during their time on the Canucks' farm team, the Manitoba Moose, but also the best account and analysis of the whole Todd Bertuzzi attack on Steve Moore.

For that alone all hockey fans should read this book. There's a lot more in here and although the stuff on Kevin Constantine's terrible line matching was priceless as was his dad's winning $10,000 in Vegas on a convoluted road trip to deliver Pronger's car after another of his moves to another team, it's not enough to keep me interested for the whole book. After you've heard of one move to another minor league or NHL city, you've heard them all. I also thought at times Pronger held way too much back. At one point he says assistant coach and former NHL player Brad McCrimmon has the greatest stories but where are they in the book? I wanted more, man!

Anyway, put it this way, where NBA 12th man Paul Shirley wrote the definitive book (Can I Keep My Jersey?) on benchwarming journeymen athletes, I felt other than learning Pronger works out a lot, drinks beer a lot and didn't dig his stint in Germany, it really didn't leap off the page except in some sections.

If you know nothing about hockey players' lives, read it. If you do already, I think you'd get more out of a book like Zamboni Rodeo by Jason Cohen on what life is like for journeyman players although that book is on the very low minors.

I have read many sports autobiographies and this was by far the best one I have read. From start to finish the book had a great flow and was very well written. This is a must read for all sports fans (not just hockey) as it shows you a side of professional sports not often told. You can tell that Sean is an every day guy who was fortunate enough to have his childhood dream come true. However, I do not think Sean's dream of playing in the NHL included the trials and tribulations he had while pursuing his dream. Sean's self deprecating humour will almost have you pulling for him as you read through his journey. All in all a great book with lots of laughs.

I am a little prejudiced but I have to say this book is an outstanding summary of Seans journey through the various stages of his hockey career. You get the feeling you are with him for the ride. Lots of humour and passion. I could not put it down.

As a hockey player, I can relate to Sean, but definitely not to the same extent. It was awesome to get the journeyman's insight!

Very entertaining read and gives great insider information into the business of hockey and how the fringe players get screwed around.
