This third instalment in the spectacular Legends Series celebrates Western Canada's first NHL franchise, the Vancouver Canucks. Full of glorious photos and engaging stories, Canucks Legends chronicles the first four decades of the franchise--from a young expansion team, to the Canucks' current place among hockey's elite, on the verge of bringing the first Stanley Cup to Vancouver. The Canucks come to life through 75 player profiles--Orland Kurtenbach, Stan Smyl, Richard Brodeur, Cam Neely, Trevor Linden, Markus Naslund, Todd Bertuzzi and many others--and over 300 historic and contemporary photos. With guest essays by journalists Archie McDonald, Tony Gallagher, Iain MacIntyre and Kevin Woodley, this book is a must-have for every Canucks fan and hockey historian.
