Raising Stanley : what it takes to claim hockey's ultimate prize by Ross Bernstein( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raising Stanley features in-depth interviews, rich history, and inspirational stories of determination and perseverance from players and coaches of all eras, including Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, Scotty Bowman, Patrick Roy, Steve Yzerman, and Dustin Byfuglien, among others. Professional hockey players are extremely superstitious when it comes to the Cup. No player will ever touch it unless he has won it. So when he actually gets to raise it above his head for the first time, it is undoubtedly one of the proudest and most profound moments of his life. Raising Stanley features more than just tales about the ecstasy of winning, however. It's about the honor, courage, and sacrifice shared with teammates; the playoff beards; the dramatic Game 7s; the closed-door captain's practices; the coaching wisdom and the "playoff make-up" (the cuts, stitches, and bruises that inevitably appear on playoff faces). Superstars of yesterday and today also share funny and poignant behind-the-scenes stories, from bench-clearing brawls to rookie hazing initiations to hilarious tales about where some of the game's biggest names have taken the Cup during the off-season. Raising Stanley is a must read for any fan who wants to know what it takes to be a winner both on and off the ice." - Book Jacket
