Who's Better, Who's Best in Hockey?: Setting the Record Straight on the Top 50 Hockey Players of the Expansion Era
Steve Silverman (Author)
DescriptionWho are the best centers in NHL history? How about wingers? How can we objectively rate the performances of individual defensive players? And how can we make reasonable judgments about players at different positions? Who is the greatest hockey player of the Expansion Era? Bobby Orr? Wayne Gretzky? Gordie Howe? Such are the questions debated by hockey columnist Steve Silverman in Who's Better, Who's Best in Hockey? In this book, Silverman includes analytics to help evaluate NHL players who have dominated over the last fifty years. The result is a fascinating ranking of the best on the ice, including legendary players like Gordie Howe as well as present-day superstars like Sidney Crosby. Throughout, Silverman discusses the many considerations that must be made when comparing modern players with players of past decades and players at different positions. Including biographical essays on those top fifty players and vital statistics for their playing careers, Who's Better, Who's Best in Hockey? is a must-have for anyone who considers hockey to be more than just a sport.
