A history of Rangers goalies through the ages! New York Rangers fans have always loved their goaltenders and, throughout their history, the Blueshirts have been blessed with some of the very best in the game. Through the first nine-plus decades of their existence, eighty-eight men from Canada, the United States, and Europe have toiled between the pipes at Madison Square Garden. They all shared the same responsibility, yet each brought their own style, personality, character, and idiosyncrasies to the position and provided unique memories for those of us who watched them. In Guardians of the Goal, each one of these brave men is discussed in chronological order, while providing an overview of their era and the general managers and coaches they played for. Such players highlighted in this book include: · Mike Richter · Ed Giacomin · John Vanbiesbrouck · Henrik Lundqvist · Davey Kerr · And many more. Regardless of whether they were a franchise goalie, a flash in the pan, or an emergency fill-in, each of these “Lone Rangers,” or as Steve Baker once called them, “The few, the proud, and the very busy,” have one thing in common: they all tried their best to keep that little one-inch by three-inch piece of frozen, vulcanized rubber out of the gaping twenty-four square foot chasm behind them. Some were more successful than others, but as you will see, although they may occasionally “steal” a game, in most cases a goaltender is only as good as the team in front of him. Guardians of the Goal is just that: an ode to those Blueshirts who laid it out night in and night out, leaving it all out on the ice for our Rangers.

Goal Structuring Notation (GSN) is becoming increasing popular; practitioners use it in the railway, air traffic management and nuclear industries, amongst others. Originally developed to present safety assurance arguments, GSN need not be restricted to safety assurances only; in principle, you can use it to present (and test) any argument. Anyone wishing to support, or refute, a claim can use GSN. Written by an experienced practitioner, The Goal Structuring Notation is both for those who wish to prepare and present compelling arguments using the notation, and for those who wish to review such arguments critically and effectively. To emphasise the versatility of this approach The Goal Structuring Notation presents examples and questions based on diverse subject areas including Business Management, Drama, Engineering, Politics and Astrobiology. Simple examples introduce each symbol of the notation before introducing more complex structures which illustrate how the symbols work together in practical scenarios. To aid learning, questions and problems augment the text, so that the reader may reflect upon and try out the new concepts and principles presented. As a comprehensive instruction in the basics of GSN and it’s application, The Goal Structuring Notation also serves as a references or manual for the practitioner to dip into as problems are encountered or as a key resource for engineers working in those industries which require a clear description of the notation, covering the initial principles and showing why each piece of the notation is necessary. Originally developed to present safety assurance arguments, GSN need not be so restricted. GSN - The Goal Structuring Notation presents examples from diverse subject areas, including business management, drama, engineering, politics and astrobiology.

The Goal of My Life

But there is more to Paul Henderson than just that one goal and in The Goal of My Life, Henderson opens up about scoring both on and off the ice. A family man and man with deep faith, Henderson lives each day with tremendous appreciation for the gifts life has rewarded him and has not allowed his recent diagnosis with cancer to alter his positive demeanor. Henderson takes fans back to the moment 1972 when Canada won the Summit Series, though additionally shares memories from his entire life and his early days playing hockey through to his retirement from the game and his personal challenges with Leukemia. Henderson is a hero and his book is one that all fans of hockey and life will enjoy.

He seemed to have it all—a beautiful family, a big house, and the celebrity that comes with being a star player in the National Football League. In the late 60s and early 70s, Danny Abramowicz was the toast of New Orleans, but as his Catholic faith faded into the background he felt alone and helpless against the temptations and expectations of fame. And so one day he called out that simple prayer: Lord, please help me! This book is about the answer to that prayer. Danny Abramowicz gives an inside view of his life in the NFL alongside the reinvigoration of his Catholic Faith and the development of a prayerful relationship with Jesus Christ. Join him on his journey from “cultural Catholic” to EWTN television host and evangelizer of Catholic men across the country. Even if you didn’t play and coach professional football with the likes of Archie Manning and Mike Ditka, you will find Danny’s down-to- earth telling of his story approachable and relatable. Most of all, Danny brings the hope of brotherhood in Christ to all men who have felt, or are now feeling, the despair of professional, personal, and spiritual failure. Our world needs courageous men of Christ to step into the breach, armed with the virtues of faith and love and hope. Learn about becoming a leader not just from Danny’s coaching experiences, but also from his work forming and sustaining men’s groups in nearly every city in which he has lived. Finally, in this book Danny presents his spiritual fitness workout—a time-tested way to build up the muscles of faith to go to spiritual battle in a hostile world.

Through faith and perseverance Kaká recovered, and today he plays in front of thousands of fans every year. As the 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year and winner of the Ballon d’Or, this midfielder for Real Madrid has become one of the most recognized faces on the soccer field.

Taft Quincey Heatley began chasing money at a young age, but he really should have been chasing the Lord. Instead of fully accepting the purpose God had for his life, he concentrated on rising up the ranks of Wall Street as an investment banker. While he earned lots of money, he found that it only brought him unrest. In God is the Goal, he shares how he moved from a life with no meaning to one filled with purpose as a pastor and minister. In the process, he shares life lessons and guidance from the Scriptures that will lead you to the Lord. At the end of each chapter, you’ll find a truth test—a set of questions that seeks to help you honestly assess your life as you strive for intimacy with the Lord. When you’re honest with yourself, God will begin to move into your life. Heatley learned that he could not live without God, and he is now humbled to be His servant. You too can find the purpose you crave with God Is the Goal.

What is marriage for? How does God answer that question? Dan B. Allender and Tremper Longman III have together written this inductive Bible study guide to help couples build healthy and happy marriages. Through six study sessions for individuals, couples or groups, they lead you through an overview of their model for marriage, following the "leave, weave, cleave" imagery of the Bible: leave your parents, weave a life together and cleave to each other. Intimate Marriage Bible studies bring spouses into deeper communion with God and with each other. In marriage a man and a woman are called to leave their families of origin, to weave their individual lives into a unity and to cleave to each other. How can fallen human beings even begin to contemplate this ideal--God's ideal? These studies will help you take small but real steps toward honoring the image of God in each other and living out God's goal for marriage. As you explore and respond to Scripture together, you will discover strength and beauty in your marriage and become even more intimate companions.

Josh and his talented travel league soccer teammates are having trouble coming together as a successful team—until he convinces them to try team-building exercises. Thirteen-year-old Josh tries out for the United, an elite travel league soccer team, and is thrilled when he makes the cut. But once the season is underway, he discovers that the practices are grueling and the other team members are prone to hogging the ball. All the other players are talented, but they each seem to be playing for themselves and not for the team. They can’t seem to pull together enough to win a single game. Tired of always being in the losers bracket, Josh begins to wonder if he made a mistake by leaving his old team and his buddies. Should he quit the United? But just when Josh is about to give up on his new team, he makes a discovery: While doing a homework assignment about the World Cup soccer championships, he learns that the 1999 United States Women’s World Cup team faced similar difficulties. Individually they were excellent athletes, but they just couldn’t work together. How did the 1999 team win it all that year? By using team-building exercises. Fired up by this idea, Josh convinces his coach to try the same approach. At first his teammates are skeptical, but with time they turn the United into a real team!
