 Original Six - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Boston Bruins were the first American franchise, and the other three American teams joined the league in an earlier expansion that enlarged the league to ten teams, its maximum size before 1967.
But all six of them do date from the league's first decade, and from 1942 to 1967 the six teams formed the entire league, after such franchises as the Maroons, Americans, and the original Ottawa Senators were bankrupted by the Great Depression.
After World War II, the NHL owners consistently rejected any bids for expansion -- including from owners of the still-extant Americans and Maroons franchises -- and in the eyes of many observers changed the criteria for entry every time with a bent to defeating any such bid.

Employing a writing style as muscular as it is graceful, McIlvanney never fails to infect the reader with his enthusiasm and sense of awe for the sport, while at the same time revealing the deeper truths at work in all such extreme expressions of human will and physical prowess.
As one critic put it, "The genius of McIlvanney is his ability to magnify and precisely delineate those elements of sport that contain fundamental truths about the human condition."
First published in 1983 to great acclaim, this sport classic is reprinted with the addition of recent dispatches to span 30 years of ringside reporting.
