Synopsis

Peter Pocklington rapidly gained his place in Canada’s national consciousness as "Peter Puck" - the maverick entrepreneur from oil-rich Alberta who made millions, employed thousands, bucked the political establishment, was the hostage in a famous kidnapping and, most prominently of all, transformed the Edmonton Oilers into the best and most successful hockey team in history. Then, in a few short years, he went from hero to villain – and when he sent Wayne Gretzky, Canada’s most revered hockey player, to California, his effigy was burned and his reputation trashed. In The Puck Talks Here, Pocklington’s remarkable life is recounted in page-turning fashion – from glorious heights to disheartening depths and, finally, to inspired renewal.

The book was previously published under the title “I’d Trade Him Again” (First printing 2009, second printing 2011). This third manuscript is identical to the second printing, but the authors have chosen to retitle the book so as to more accurately, in their opinion, reflect the content.

It’s clear McConnell and Nye wouldn’t let Pocklington spin his take without checks and balances... They have done a professional job.”
KEVIN ALLEN, USA TODAY
