What People Are Saying About The Defense Never Rests
"This book is an excellent read and a 'must' on any Hockey fan's list. Dowbiggin
provides many stories of the Hockey Czars that made up the old six team league,
the players and the coaches. Underlying all of this is the vilification of a league
whose owners kept their players under thumb and underpaid while collecting huge
profits with the support of the National Hockey League Players Association and Alan
Eagleson who headed the Association. There is a lot of great background to the many
star players mentioned from the 40's through the 70's.
In my opinion, Dowbiggin gets a little long winded on the pension plan and its intricacies
near the middle of the book but otherwise its a great read."
