Dose of Reality #82November 19, 2007
This morning, James Mirtle mentions a new book that should be very important to Blue Jacket fans. No, it’s not about the upcoming indictment of Doug MacLean for impersonating a GM. The book is titled “Future Greats and Heartbreaks”, by Gare Joyce. It will available in the near future and here is a link at Amazon. The book is about scouting in the NHL and according to what I have read, the scouting department of the Columbus Blue Jackets is prominently featured. Gare Joyce is even blogging about his book here. Joyce writes about Derek Brassard, Jakub Voracek, Kris Russell, Tom Sestito, and the CBJ scouting group. The author has kept in touch with many of the principals in the book and has some follow-up remarks on his site. I have it on order and will try to review and blog about it in the future.
