Oilers NOW with Bob Stauffer
"When I spoke to Ron Hextall I asked, 'If you had to look back on your career, and describe yourself as a player, what would you say?' He said, 'I would call myself kind of crazy and I probably wouldn't want to be with me.'"

Sportsnet 590 The FAN with George Rusic
Host: "How the hell did the Maple Leafs not end up with Ken Dryden?"
Randi: "Well, it's one of many mistakes the Leafs have made over the years. They let Bernie Parent go, too. Why did they do that? There is really no explanation. It's just the Leafs."

WNSB Baltimore Sports
Host: "Who is the goalie not in the book who most folks would have liked to see included?"
Randi: "Tony Esposito. I'm getting hate emails every second day from people who are outraged that he's not in the book. He was one of the best goalies ever. But when I did the research, I didn't find anything about him that was particularly compelling to me."

Staten Island Advance
"What this selection of goalies show is a wide range of personalities, from the super nice to the seemingly psychotic, but what they have in common is a love of the game, something that they obviously share with author Randi Druzin, who has written a great book about their lives. She has picked twelve of the best, and each profile is as winning as the player it portrays. You will wish there were more."
