Deserving Hall of Famers?

There is a mounting campaign to create awareness about the 1972 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team and its contribution, as a team, to the development of the sport in the United States.

The contention spelled out in the book makes a case that without the silver medal-winning effort in Sapporo in 1972, the 1980 Miracle on Ice probably never occurs.

Herb Brooks admitted as much to Coach Murray Williamson in a note following the '80 Games.

Dear Murray,

Your influence as a teammate and coach helped produce this victory.

Herb Brooks
