Summary

Summary

On Thin Ice is a crie de coeur about what has happened to hockey. Bruce Hood demonstrates how the game he loves has changed since the glory days of the Original Six, how hockey has been merchandised and stripped of its soul, and how Canadian hockey, both professional and amateur, is on the decline.

Hood asks, "Why is the game of hockey no longer developing Bobby Orrs? What has changed?" He makes a damning indictment of hockey at the amateur, junior, and minor-league levels for failing to create strong, sound hockey players. But don't worry -- there is hope. And Bruce Hood offers his wisdom on how to save the game of hockey.
