    I also recommend this one, really good insight into the KHL. Dave King coaching Magnitogorsk in Malkin's last season.

    I loved Fleury's book, I'll give Boogard's and Pronger's a go. They'll hold me off until Avery's book comes out.

    Boogard was heartbreaking to read how his life unraveled. Pronger just funny. It was great to read a down to earth account of the average hockey player. He never stops talking about how he beat Yzerman on his 1st NHL faceoff
