"Hockey fans should want to read this book just as much as Leaf fans. It takes you inside the great history of the Leafs- right inside. From Johnny Bower' s contract negotiations to everything that was happening behind the scenes, I enjoyed this book so much. It' s fascinating stuff." "- John Davidson, MSG Network and Hockey Night in Canada" "Cox and Stellick may not always have mainstream opinions, but their respective abilities to present a case are abundantly clear in this work. Their candor will strike a nerve with many, and this book will be a must read for hockey fans everywhere." "- Bobby Orr" "Gord and Damien give an excellent insight into the last Leaf team to win a Stanley Cup championship. I lived part of it, but I realize that the legacy of the Leafs is for everybody. The most enduring legacy continues to be the unwavering support of all loyal Leaf fans." "- Darryl Sittler" "I enjoyed reading "'67." It certainly brought back many memories. Reliving that great series and the year 1967 was most exciting and emotional. I believe most fans who read it will also enjoy reliving that series." "- Johnny Bower" "Gord and Damien have done an excellent job capturing the story of the Leafs' 1967 Stanley Cup win. It brought back fabulous memories of the best time to be an NHL player in Toronto. A must read for any hockey fan." "- Bob Baun"
