Trevor is a defenseman who loves to use his size in his game- sometimes a little too much. He's taking needless penalties, costing his team the wins they need to advance. He hates letting them down, but he doesn't know how to change his game. As the Leafs head for the Cup in the 1961-62 season, he follows the plays of his hockey hero- Tim Horton- for inspiration. Horton is a big defenseman too, but he uses his size wisely. One day, through a lucky coincidence, Trevor comes face to face with Tim Horton, and finds the nerve to ask him for some tips. Now, armed with some sound advice, he returns to his hockey team determined to rein in his temper and play a better game. And what a game it is! Trevor helps his team on to victory just as the Leafs hoist their newly won Stanley Cup- with a winning goal assisted by none other than Tim Horton!

Julien est élu capitaine de son équipe de hockey. Il se demande alors comment jouer son rôle, quelle attitude adopter. On lui conseille d'observer d'autres capitaines, ainsi que de faire des recherches sur divers leaders canadiens, dans le sport et d'autres domaines. Julien admire tout particulièrement deux grands joueurs et capitaines: Wendel Clark des Maple Leafs de Toronto, et Wayne Gretsky, des Kings de Los Angeles. Ceux-ci ont l'occasion de s'affronter dans une série éliminatoire de la coupe Stanley. -- Texte très long insistant sur les valeurs positives du sport et du leadership, dans un esprit patriotique canadien. Les illustrations réalistes de style vieillot reflètent bien l'esprit du texte. À noter, une description assez détaillée de la série éliminatoire entre les Leafs et les Kings. De brèves notes biographiques sur Wendel et Gretzky complètent le tout. [SDM]
