review Hockey Confidential Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Incomparable Bobby Orr to help cope with the pressures of being tabbed as the Next Big Thing in hockey; as well as Sheldon Keefe’s dramatic personal struggle to leave behind a dark and troubled past to become a better man son brother husband father and hockey coachKarl Subban poured out his heart and soul in a long all encompassing interview at a Tim Hortons in Rexdale Ontario; Tyler Dellow and myriad other advanced statistics gurus including the legendary Vic Ferrari made themselves available on numerous occasions to repeatedly explain their craft to a guy who barely escaped Grade 12 math; and Jari Byrski welcomed Bob into his home where his beloved wife died and where he thought seriously about taking his own life and might have if not for hearing Bob’s voice on television talking about a Steven Stamkos goalJari Byrski Well that’s one of a number of reasons why the full title of the book Hockey Confidential Inside Stories from People Inside the Game is actually an apt description. Reading this book is like being a kid listening to your dad tell a dirty joke You know you re missing the juicy parts No wonder hockey players and Canadians in general have a reputation for being boring Among the revelations a near death experience leads you to appreciate life getting to the NHL takes hard work The Tragically Hip wrote songs about hockeyThe book s biggest draw and its biggest problem is that Bob McKenzie is a hockey insider He knows exactly where the bodies are buried but he doesn t want to tell you either because he s too principled or because he doesn t want to alienate his sources In one chapter he actually suggests that if readers want to know the tacky details they can look them up on the internet because he won t dish This approach is at its worst in the chapter on Sheldon Keefe It s not a redemption story unless the depths are explored Reading this you might think the worst thing Keefe ever did was to refuse to shake hands with the commissioner of the OHLThe most frustrating part of the book is that it could have been much better if the many weak stories were edited out Hockey Confidential is at its best in chapters about big personalities with inspirational lives like the story of Karl Subban A folksy simplistic approach is the best way to explain hockey stats McKenzie s writing style is conversational and easy to read I would contrast this book to another hockey book I read recently The Kid by Shawna Richer where she followed Sidney Crosby s first year in the NHL While Richer seldom inserts herself into the story you sense she is an outsider as a Canadian in the States a woman among men a reporter with a single long term assignment Therefore she is able to deliver a story that gives readers a true sense that they are peeking inside the NHL and hearing behind the scene stories In addition she is brave enough criticize hockey people and institutions regardless of the conseuences
