Product description

From Booklist

Arguably the grandest trophy in professional sports, the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup was donated by Lord Frederick Arthur Stanley more than a century ago. After introductory chapters on the cup's physical attributes and the donation, Diamond and company chart cup competition through 2002. During 1893-1926, the cup was "a challenge trophy." To win it, a team had to finish ahead of the present holder in league play or challenge and defeat the reigning champions in a special series. Without the NHL assuring head-to-head competition, such a series wasn't guaranteed, but "theoretically any senior Canadian amateur team . . . could issue a challenge." Ultimately, the NHL outlasted other hockey leagues, and in 1927 the cup officially became its ultimate prize. The bulk of the book consists of year-by-year summaries of cup finals through 2002 and biographical sketches of notable participants. What with copious illustrations, statistics, and the invocation of such championship moments as the Rocket's Dazed Dance (see p. 125), a fine book about a sport and its trophy. Mike Tribby
