More Description

The World Cup of Hockey and its predecessor, the Canada Cup, represent the only world hockey championship truly open to the world's best players The result has been -- particularly with the 1987 tournament -- the highest level of hockey ever achieved in the eyes of the most afficianados of the sport. (Although professional NHL players are now eligible to compete in the Winter Olympics, the timing -- just past the mid-way point of the NHL season schedule, in the crucial lead-up to the Stanley Cup playoffs -- has caused many players, their agents and their teams to decide against participating).

The World Cup features each participant nation's very best players, competing against one another at an unprecedented level. These athletes play full out -- not for money, but for the pride of their country and the love of the game. When hockey is played for those reasons, the result is as pure as it is unforgettable.

With 2001 being the 25th anniversary of the original tournament, The World Cup of Hockey looks back at each tournament, recapturing the passion and excitement of great days past.

Each tournament, including the Canada Cup tournaments, is looked at separately and features:
-- Team-by team capsules
-- Game-by-game summaries, including box scores
-- Tournament summaries
-- Complete statistical breakdown
-- Plus fascinating and dramatic anecdotes and accounts of the action.

In addition, the authors look at how the Canada Cup originated, at the future of the World Cup, the tournament's greatest players, nation-by-nation all-time statistics and a never-before-seen tournament record section.
