Praise

“No player has had the game-changing impact that Sidney Crosby has. No writer has chronicled his remarkable, precarious journey better than Gare Joyce.” — Dan Robson, author of Quinn and Bower, senior writer, The Athletic

“Crosby’s accomplishments are well-documented, but Gare Joyce’s Most Valuable puts them into a new perspective. Sidney is not just a player in the pantheon of the greatest players of all time but likely the most influential ever.” — Craig Button, TSN broadcaster and former NHL executive

“There has never been a player quite like Sidney Crosby in the history of the National Hockey League. And there has never been a hockey writer quite like Gare Joyce, a veteran wordsmith who has an uncanny ability to peelthe layers of the onion and deliverthe story beyond the headlines. Most Valuable is well-researched, impeccably written and full ofinsights gained from a career spent in the best seat in the house.”—Ken Campbell, The Hockey News

“Gare Joyce has long been considered one of North America’s best sportswriters. With Most Valuable he shows himself to be one of sports’ best thinkers—a brilliant study of one player and his remarkable effect on the game he plays.” — Roy MacGregor, author of The Home Team: Fathers, Sons & Hockey

“There’s a moment in this book that really hits me. Gare Joyce is interviewing Sidney Crosby in 2003, asking about an event Crosby can’t control. The future Hall-of-Famer says, ‘I don’t think about what’s fair. I just make the most of whatever situation it is.’ When Crosby makes this comment, he has no idea of the major challenges he will face. But, years before they occur, this sixteen-year-old already has the attitude that will push him through and bring him back to the top of the NHL .It’s a great story.” — Elliotte Friedman, Sportsnet broadcaster
