Reviews of The Game

Overall customer rating: 3.000

For Canadiens fans only.

by db25 on Mar 27, 2008

Dryden spends most of this book fawning over Scotty Bowman, and while there are worse people to fawn over, it's a little strange. You hear about his day-to-day life in Montreal, the road trips, the locker rooms...but it just isn't what I expected. There is little talk of actual games he played in, which is fine for most people...but I'm sorry, I just don't care about Dryden's kids and how hard it is to find time for them. Must be real tough with that summer off and not having to get to the rink until 4 pm for games. Anyway, if you're a Canadiens fan, or just love Ken Dryden, you'll love this book. For the average hockey fan, it's an interesting read, but one I won't be picking up again.

most overrated canadiens goalie of all time, yes or no? i mean, it's not like anyone ever spent any time in his zone. he should have to give back a cup ring or two.
