This is the must-have book for any hockey fan. Never has a single region of the country had three legitimate superstars playing at the top of their game at the same time. Sidney Crosby, Nathan MacKinnon and Brad Marchand could legitimately form an All-World first line. The Three Stars is the story of three superstars and one magical season.

Editorial Reviews

"What these three players have achieved is staggering and Philip is the ideal person to put it all into perspective." —Will Palov

"Like every other Nova Scotian who loves hockey, I'm proud to be a fan who gets to witness what these three men do on a nightly basis. The term 'superstar' is often thrown around too carelessly, but Crosby, Marchand and MacKinnon absolutely fit the bill. Reading The Three Stars reminded me just how rare and exciting it is that these three players are at the top of their game at the same time." —Dan Robertson, play-by-play broadcaster for the Montreal Canadiens
