Each month during the 2011-2012 season, Hockey Now will feature a spread from the new book, Behind the Moves.
You can find October’s spread on page 14 & 15 at http://hockeynow.ca/system/magazines/ontario_editions/11/original/ONHN-102911.pdf
What better way to start than with a spread featuring the longest serving general manager in the NHL and a five-time Cup champion GM with the Oilers, Glen Sather. Sather is one of the 34 Cup finalist GMs who participated in the making of Behind the Moves, a 252-page coffee-table book rich with hockey imagery, and the raw experiences of NHL GMs who built winners. The book honors these legendary GMs, provides a complete statistical ranking of their achievements, chronicles the evolution of their profession, and charts the inter-relationships between them – whether they emerged from the older Sam Pollock or Bill Torrey schools of franchise management, or patterned themselves after the more recent examples of NHL executive development modeled by the likes of Glen Sather or Pat Quinn. The book features a foreword by Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke and thereafter provides equal weight to the recollections, philosophies, and insights of the other GMs who have taken their team to the Stanley Cup Finals since the NHL assumed control of the Stanley Cup in 1926. The book is not available in stores and can only be purchased at www.nhlgms.com
