This book was amazing! My dad and his brothers grew up near Killer and so I had heard a lot of these stories before from them and my Grandfather, but still, what an amazing book. If you like hockey, you will love this book!

I bought this book for my husband and daughter, who went to every 67s game for many, many years when Killer was coach. They both loved the stories.

Brian Kilrea is just a huge personality. His experiences as a player and coach have been captured beautifully by James Duthie.
You Have Three Options: Buy this book, Buy this #%@&! Book, or..... Dec 2 2010
By T. K. Barnhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Having grown up in the Detroit area and being a lifelong hockey fan I certainly knew who the Ottawa 67's were, but had no idea who their coach was , let alone the fact that he is a legend. But if Darren Pang says "Brian Kilrea is the best coach [he] ever had period," that is good enough for me, and I bought the book on the spot.

I finished it less than 36 hours later.

Highlights include: Stories of Brian Campbell and Nick Boynton winning a Memorial Cup together, 11 years prior to winning the Stanley Cup together. The Eddie Shore stories, and numerous observations and contributions from NHL players.

For coaches, you won't find much tactical talk, but you will pick up a few lines to "borrow," such as what to tell your team prior to overtime of a championship game (p. 27), or three options to give your defensemen when clearing the zone (p. 237).

There are no earth shattering revelations, or life changing moments...just good hockey talk and good stories. All in all, a solid addition to any hockey fan's library.

If you love stories about hockey, this is a terrific book. It's also great book for hockey coaches. It contains valuable insight on Brian Kilrea's coaching philosophy. He breaks the game down into simple parts that helps players understand how to focus under pressure in game situations.
