 Counsel In The Crease
By Robert O. Swados
By Bob Silvestri

For over thirty years the Buffalo Sabres have thrilled hockey fans in the Western New York area. Now one of the architects of the team has written an exposé about the team with a perspective not heard from before. Attorney Robert O. Swados new book Counsel In The Crease takes you behind the scenes of the Buffalo Sabres. From the beginning of the team and his relationship with the original owners of the Sabres, The Knox brothers, to the Adelphia scandal and the recent NHL lockout Swados has been there and seen it all. This entertaining story goes behind the newspapers headlines to tell you the truth about the coaches, the players, the owners and the league itself in frank detail. Sometimes the action in the front office and the behind closed door maneuverings are as rough as the on ice action. The book does not come across as an airing of dirty laundry although there is some of that but as a real look at the world of professional sports and our beloved hockey team. A must read for any Sabres fan the book includes a forward written by former Sabres coach Scotty Bowman. You can purchase Counsel In The Crease at most local bookstores, the Sabres store in HSBC Arena or by going on line at www.prometheusbooks.com
