Coach: The Pat Burns story
Anyone else read it? Just finished it yesterday. Was pretty disappointed. I found quite a few errors, which surprised me. It makes me wonder what else could be wrong.
Some of the errors I found:
-- It was Doug Gilmour who scored the Cup winning goal in 1989, not Lanny McDonald.
-- The final score of Game 6 of the finals in 89 was 4-2, not 4-1.
-- Wendel Clark and Dave Andreychuk did not have the highest total of any two wingers on any team during the 1993-94 season. They had 99 goals. Hull and Shanahan in St. Louis had 109.
-- States that Quebec traded for Clark because they were roughhoused by the Habs in the playoffs in 1994. The Nordiques never made the playoffs in 1994. And the Habs played the Bruins.
-- Niedermayer did not change into his uniform to raise the cup in 2003 with the Devils. He was already in uniform because he was playing. It was Nieuwendyk.
So with so many mistakes, how can I believe other things that I don't know personally. Was there really a chance that the Habs pulled out of a Corson for Clark deal? Can I believe it to be true with so many errors?
It takes away from the book, and that's unfortunate.
