During the 1950s and 60s the Leafs were always a contender and won the Stanley Cup in three consecutive years (1962–1964), along with an improbable Stanley Cup victory over their archrival, the Montreal Canadiens, in 1967 to close out the era of the original six NHL teams.

The Leafs 1967 Cup win was the high-water mark of an era chronicled by Kevin Shea and three others in a book called Toronto Maple Leafs, Diary of a Dynasty 1957-1967. Last seen 43 years ago, was the wide-eyed optimism of a country and for the Leafs, a period of unrivalled superiority, an era where a Stanley Cup final between the Leafs and Montreal Canadiens seemed normal, not momentous. The 1967 Stanley Cup brought with it the end of the innocence. It was the end in so many ways, said Shea. It was the end of the original six era as well of flower power and those things

While the look and feel of the book are a little "casual" for my tastes given the regal subject, the points of view expressed by the participants and the accounts by the author give you a great feel for this very special time in Maple Leaf history. I wish there would have been more noteworthy photographs, but it was still worth it.
Zorve
This book is a great one, I'd recommend this to any Leaf fan. Author does a great job taking the reader back to the glory days of the Leafs. So many sports books are written by journalists that must only get the gig due to name recognition and little else. Shea's writing transcends mere sports. Solid writer.

A truly outstanding read!

As a child of the 60's, who was forced to go to bed on school nights before the games were over, this is truly a walk down memory lane!

Skillfully written by Outstanding author Kevin Shea (who was ably assisted by 3 other very qualified individuals), this is a pleasurable publication, that does not bore the reader, as some diaries have, but rather, enlightens even the most loyal of Maple Leaf fans with details and insights that clearly show that there was a tremendous amount of research done by the authors!

For those of us who were around at the time, it is a pleasant trip down memory lane. For those Maple Leaf fans who came after 1967 it is a pleasant and informative look at an age of hockey that we will never see again.

Imagine NHL hockey with only 120 player openings in the League! Imagine watching a game with no advertising on the boards or on the ice! Imagine playing the other teams in the league 14 times a season! The teams travelled by train, and, in the case of a home and home weekend series, didn't speak to members of the other team during these trips! Less than a dozen players wore helmets (that's because there was a lot more respect for your fellow player than there is now!).

I could go on further, but that would spoil the pleasurable experience that reading this book provides!

This is a great read even for fans of other teams!

Enjoy!
