A celebration of the 20th anniversary of one of the greatest seasons in hockey history
Twenty years after the fact, the mere mention of the 1992-93 NHL season brings back vivid memories for hockey fans across North America. The last time that the Montreal Canadiens hoisted the Stanley Cup, Wayne Gretzky's last appearance in a playoff final, and Mario Lemieux's most inspirational season, these years are rightly considered some of the greatest in NHL history. Now, in A Season in Time: Super Mario, Killer, St. Patrick, the Great One, and the Unforgettable 1992-93 NHL Season, acclaimed hockey writer Todd Denault looks back to those heady days.
The story of a truly magical age for hockey in North America, a time that came to be known as "the last great season", where hope reigned, where the unthinkable seemed possible, and some of the greatest legends the game has ever seen took to the ice, A Season in Time is a true trip down memory lane. Covering the stories of Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, Patrick Roy, and Doug Gilmour, and capturing the frenzy and excitement that hasn't been seen since, the book is essential listening for hockey lovers of all ages.

Why Can't Narrators Pronouce Names Correctly?
Detailed, accurate, pronounciation
All of the players and coaches
Yes and no. The pronunciation of many player names was horrible. I'm a longtime hockey fan and am very familiar with all of the players and coaches covered in this book. Ken Maxon butchered many of the names to the point that it detracted from the presentation. I don't understand why the producers of audio books do not insist that their narrators learn how to properly pronounce names especially in sports books.
Overall, this is an excellent account of a great NHL season but again, names, names, names. Get them right!
