LOS ANGELES — Even though there have been indications over the past few days that the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players Association are finally negotiating rather than just posturing, and that an agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement could be just days away, it is rather obvious that it won’t take much for the current negotiations to collapse.
Meanwhile, time marches on without the NHL on the ice. Many are looking for substitutes for their desperately-needed hockey fix. Catching an American Hockey League, ECHL, or junior league game, if you are lucky enough to have a team nearby, is probably the best substitute. But another way to help fill the void is to pick up a good hockey book, and a great choice is Breakaway: From Behind The Iron Curtain To The NHL – The Untold Stories Of Hockey’s Great Escapes, by Tal Pinchevsky, published in 2012.
