"I recognize that I am a stubborn, tough bastard to deal with," writes hockey legend Punch Imlach. This no-holds-barred story of his second time round with the Leafs lets you decide for yourself.
Imlach is one of the game's great coaches. He made the Toronto Maple Leafs the best team in the NHL in the Sixties, winning four straight Stanley Cups. Here he picks up his story from the day he was fired by the Leafs in 1969, recounting his happy years as coach of the Buffalo Sabres, building the team up and having fun as he does it. Then came the offer he couldn't refuse--a second chance with the Leafs. Imlach tells his story of how he tried to bring the Leafs back to glory, describing his many battles with players like Darryl Sittler, owner Harold Ballard, and lawyers like Alan Eagleson.
Heaven and Hell in the NHL tells the story straight, making this one of the best hockey books of all time.

"Whatever else he may be, Punch is never dull."
