The Summit in 1974
On September 17, 1974, Canadian Prime-Minister
Pierre Trudeau dropped the puck for the ceremonial
face off between Pat Stapleton, Team
Canada, and Boris Mikhailov, Team
USSR, marking the beginning of the '74
Summit Series. Very much like two years ago
at the '72
Summit, the Series seemed to end with a predicatable
result. Very much like two years ago, it turned
into a dramatic hockey spectacle going well beyond
initial predictions and expectations.
The Summit in 1974 project is a
historical tribute to the hockey legends that participated
in the 1974 Summit Series. Created truly by a Canadian-American-Russian
group of authors, the
site is our on-line attempt to capture information
about the Series, about Canadian and Soviet players
and about the impact that the Summit had on the
development of hockey in North America and the World
Hockey Association, Russia
and in the world.
The Summit in 1974 is a non-commercial venture.
We don't endorse neither a specific league or organization,
nor a specific country or political system. It's
rather an educational and historical overview of
one of the top international hockey events of the
1970s. And, of course, it's about the "coolest
game on Earth" - it's about hockey.
With all these said, we only want to add:
