100 Books & Counting For The Hockey Maven

By Tom Murray,

First of all, before I write another word, a confession:

Stan Fischler, aka “The Hockey Maven,” is an old and dear friend. I figured I’d better share that fact before diving into a review of his latest effort, “We Are The Rangers,” which represents a bit of a milestone in his publishing career: It is his 100th book.
