Mike Ulmer does a fantastic job capturing the history and highlights of the Stanley Cup's long journey from its 19th century beginnings to the present. The reader is witness to the genesis of this "challenge trophy", and then follows its humorous and emotional travels through the years. Think of this book as a "Red Violin" (the movie) for hockey.
A quick read, though very well written, this book will be surely be re-read numeous times - especially before making any trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
For any lover of the fastest game on ice, this is an absolute must. Thanks, Mike.
