About The Book

Kincaide brings to life what was at once the most glorious and the most tumultuous time in Detroit hockey history, the Original Six era. Red Wings stars interviewed for Legends of the Detroit Red Wings won 35 Stanley Cups between them. These are stories told by the biggest names in hockey both in Detroit and across Canada from the mid-1940s into the late 1960s. Legends like Gordie Howe, Alex Delvecchio, Bill Gadsby, and Red Kelly, as well as other stars from the National Hockey League from 50 years ago and longer, share their stories as they saw them—as they lived them. A few things readers will discover include who Red Wings legend and Hockey Hall of Famer Ted Lindsay thinks is the greatest Red Wing of all time and how trades by iron-fisted Detroit general manager Jack Adams ruined a team many players felt should have won a half-dozen more Stanley Cups. Legends of the Detroit Red Wings is hockey history in the truest sense of the term.
