Les statistiques y côtoient des anecdotes loufoques ou embarrassantes, mais toujours véridiques en filigrane desquelles renaissent de leurs cendres les moments mémorables et les vedettes ayant marqué l'évolution du sport national canadien. Des questionnaires pour tester ses connaissances et des vignettes humoristiques émaillent le tout. [SDM]
