Remembering Guy Lafleur
A CelebrationBook - 2004
Who was the greatest hockey player of the 1970s? Between Bobby Orr's dominance in the early years of the decade and Wayne Gretzky's seismic arrival at its end, no star shone as brightly as Guy Lafleur. Remembering Guy Lafleur is a vivid tribute to one of the game's greatest talents, a player who led his Montreal Canadiens to five Stanley Cups during their 1970s heyday, registering 50 or more goals in six straight campaigns. Beautifully designed and packed with vintage photos and classic sports journalism, this sixth book in the Remembering series offers a rinkside portrait of the Thurso, Quebec, native's record-smashing junior career, his impact on two generations of Canadians as a 1970s pop icon in Quebec, and his still outspoken views on the game in retirement. Featuring award-winning writers including Montreal Gazette scribes Dave Stubbs and Mark Lepage, Hockey Hall of Fame journalist Frank Orr and columnist Doug Herod, Remembering Guy Lafleur salutes one of the most enduring legends of sports.
