""Before the Blade" is an outstanding book and a must read for all Buffalo hockey fans and it's one of my favorites! I still read it after all these years because it is one of the better ones written on the history of professional hockey in the Buffalo area before the Buffalo Sabres."
Buffalo "Super Fan"
"I really enjoyed this book. While I'm too young to remember the Bisons, "Before the Blade" gave me a real good sense of the history and tradition of the organization. I put it right up there with Budd Bailey's "Celebrate the Tradition" as a must-have for any Buffalo hockey fans."
Bill Banzer
"If you grew up as a hockey fan in Buffalo before 1970, you'll certainly find this tribute to the Bisons' minor-league days interesting. If not (or if you're not interested in the subject), you won't. This was clearly a labor of love for the author, Tim Warchocki. The pictures and research are very impressive..."
