Coach Scotty Bowman

from CBC,

Hockey legend Scotty Bowman has taken on the role of coach once again for a new book about his life and legacy.

In Scotty: A Hockey Life Like No Other, goalie-turned-author Ken Dryden asks his former coach to pick the eight best NHL teams of all time, during their best seasons, and pits them against each other in a hypothetical play-off series.

"I think that part of the reason why there hasn't been a book really about Scotty before is that usually sports books, and books from coaches, are about stories ... and Scotty doesn't experience in stories. He doesn't really think in stories. He's too practical. He's a coach," Dryden said.

"So instead of focusing on what he's less comfortable with, put him back into a place where he is most comfortable. Make him a coach."
