This book probes for answers to how one of hockey's greatest players could also lead one of the most tragic and mysterious personal lives. Chris Robinson juxtaposes these investigations with his own beginnings as a troubled youth who found relief in the cardboard identities put forth by hockey cards and by his own identity as a street-hockey hotshot. Another means of escape for both men became alcohol, a facet of hockey culture thoroughly examined by Robinson's sceptical eye. Informing everything is Robinson's scrappy-yet-meditative, harsh yet humorous thoughts on a game that so many love to hate, or hate to love.
