The Man Who changed the Face of Goaltending,
This review is from: Jacques Plante: The Man Who Changed the Face of Hockey (Hardcover)I really enjoed this book as I have with almost every great goaltender biography or autobiography. Plante was clearly a professional well ahead of his time with respect to the way he approached his profession. When most did not train during the off season, did not review notes about teams played, goal-scorers and the goals they scored, there was Plante doing his thing. He was cheap and in many ways a loner but he was clearly a man who did what he felt was correct and had numerous ideas that improved the goaltending trade and the game of hockey. He saw too early an end like Vezina and Sawchuk. Add this book to your goaltending library!
