Book Overview

This is an insider's look at life on the lines. To hockey fans, Ray Scapinello's name and face are as recognizable as any star player or coach in the NHL. Scampy, as he is affectionately known has had a long and storied career as a linesman in the NHL. His 5 foot 7 frame and 163 pounds belie his ability and endurance on the ice. When Ray retired in 2004 after 33 years in the NHL, he had officiated in 2,500 regular season matches (never missing a game),...

What a GREAT Book

I really don't write reviews that much. I am only doing this because I truly loved the book and finished it in a few days. I just love hockey stories and this book fit the bill for me.

Great airplane book

I (asked for and) received this book for Christmas (Thanks, Mom!) and read it on the plane ride to Minnesota. It was a fun, entertaining read. For a post-lockout new fan, as I am, I found the mentions of the mechanics of the game interesting and for a short while I considered trying to be a referee or linesman in the NHL, until I realized I couldn't skate forwards that well, let alone backwards, sideways, or while holding myself up on the boards. The non-mechanics parts of the book were also fun - It has a lot of stories of "Scampy's" personal experiences working in the league for over 20 years. If you're looking for a light*, fun read about hockey, this is certainly the book for you. *"Light" meaning quick and mostly painless, and we're comparing it to the wide range of literature rather than other hockey books.

Good but could have been better

This was a good book. But if you're looking for juicy stories you won't find many (if any) here.

Loved the book!

I bought an autographed copy of the book directly from Ray at the HSBC arena in Buffalo. I loved Scampy as a ref and I loved his book. Sure, it could've had a bit more content but overall it was a very enjoyable read.

Between the lines

Fantastic Book - a must have for any die hard hockey fan. Great insight into the game and it's history.
