Reading With the NHL

October 4, 2009

This post sprung from a comment that mcguffers made last night on IPB: namely that NHL players may need to write books in order to properly discuss topics that they are well known for and/or tired of hearing about. (Example: Miller and Gaustad writing a tome called Our Team Will Be Held Accountable.) Based on that, let’s take a look at some of the other books our favorite NHLers could possibly be writing.

Nathan Paetsch: Origami Swans and 101 Other Craft Projects Made From Items Found in the Press Box. Note that this book has a sequel called My Life As The Seventh Defenseman and/or Fifteenth Forward

Derek Roy: I Feel Pretty: A Guide to Looking Your Best on a Daily Basis

Tim Connolly: It’s Only A Flesh Wound! The Story of One of the Most Oft-Injured Buffalo Sabres

Semyon Varlamov: No Fat American Chicks: A Guide to Finding “The One” for You

Ryan Miller: Don’t Try to Find Me on Facebook & Twitter: The Anti-Social Media Handbook. Note the follow-up novel: Please Let Me Shop At Wegmans in Peace.

Lindy Ruff: New and Creative Ways of Using Profanity on the Bench to Make Your Point

Martin Biron: Hey Lindy! A Guide to Making Meaningless Conversation at Any Time

Hank Tallinder: I’m Not Soft, Really, I’m Not

Martin Brodeur: It’s Not Delivery, It’s Delicioso. The Story of a Roly-Poly Goalie

I’m sure there’s many, many more books out there just waiting to be written.



  1. This had me laughing so hard! I think I need most of these on my bookshelf immediately – haha

  2. Glad you liked them!

  3. Those are brilliant, Amy! 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  4. To be fair, Dustin Penner should get credit too for being a tool. 😀

  5. I want a “Hey, Lindy!” tee.
