No major professional sports organization has undergone more turmoil--and embarrassment--in the past decade that the National Hockey Leauge. The NHL has faced management shake-ups, skyrocketing player salaries, franchise movement, expansion, and players' strikes while attempting to compete for the attention of sports fans against the "big three"--baseball, football, and basketball. In this penetrating analysis, Stan Fischler examines the rise, fall, and attempted comeback of big league hockey. Fischler, a highly respected hockey reporter and author, gives an insider's look at the league's struggles on and off the ice while taking a look toward the sport's future. Fischler spares no one in "Cracked Ice," not even icons such as Wayne Gretzky and Chris Chelios, while also taking shots at the sports media establishment and NHL officials. "Cracked Ice" is a revealing look behind the scenes at a league living on the edge.
