In Blood Feud, Colorado Avalanche beat writer Adrian Dater not only submits that the Red Wings-Avalanche rivalry was the most feverish match-up in recent years, but also that there was none better played. No fewer than twenty players have or will eventually make it to the Hall of Fame; the best scorers were matched up against the best goalies; brilliant coaches could be found on both benches; and two of the league's smartest general managers ruthlessly tried to one-up each other at every NHL trade deadline. Blood Feud is a rollicking story of a fierce, and often violent, rivalry.

This is their remarkable story of espionage, defection, heartbreak and triumph - and remarkable courage after a fateful limo crash nearly killed one of them.

How much should you encourage your child when he or she wants to become a professional athlete? Is it realistic to believe your son can really make it in the NHL? When Craig and Roberta McCarty were faced with that decision, they told Darren to always have a plan and they would stand behind him—whatever it took. What it took was a lot of family sacrifice but what it led to was a two-time Stanley Cup winning career with the Detroit Red Wings. What the family hadn't planned on was the individual struggles both father and son would have to face. After helplessly watching his son battle with alcoholism, Craig had to concern himself with his own health when he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma terminal cancer. After years of disagreement, father and son put the past behind them and vowed to be there for each other through their difficulties. Rinkside is a truly inspirational story of a family struggling to beat the odds and their discovery that a family unit is not disposable, but truly one of the most valuable things in life.

Looking back on a memorable career, Darren McCarty recounts his time as one of the most visible and beloved members of the Detroit Red Wings as well as his personal struggles with addiction, finances, and women and his daily battles to overcome them. As a member of four Red Wings' Stanley Cup-winning teams, McCarty played the role of enforcer from 1993 to 2004 and returning again in 2008 and 2009. His "Grind Line" with teammates Kris Draper and Kirk Maltby physically overmatched some of the best offensive lines in the NHL, but he was more than just a brawler: his 127 career goals included several of the highlight variety, including an inside-out move against Philadelphia in the clinching game of the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals. As colorful a character as any NHL player, he has arms adorned with tattoos, and he was the lead singer in the hard rock band Grinder during the offseason. Yet this autobiography details what may have endeared him most to his fans: the honest, open way he has dealt with his struggles in life off the ice. Whether dealing with substance abuse, bankruptcy, divorce, or the death of his father, Darren McCarty has always seemed to persevere.
