 April 2000 Book Review
Stein illuminates how former NHL president John Ziegler capitalized on the power struggle between the "Old Guard" of NHL governors in the 1970s, led by Bill Wirtz of the Blackhawks and Bruce Norris of the Red Wings, and the "Young Turks" led by Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider, to seize the NHL presidency.
The author reviews his short tenure as NHL president near the end of the book, attempting to offer what he calls "the true story" behind his election to the Hockey Hall of Fame, and the reasoning why he rescinded his election.
Allowing his nomination and election to take place, after taking, in his own words, two high-placed NHL executives "to the woodshed" for supposedly trying to use their influence to get themselves elected into the Hall, was very bad judgement on Stein's part, which he now readily admits, but seemed blind to see at the time.
