    Peter was born and raised in Beartown, and he has been a lot of different men here: a kid in skating classes, a promising junior, the youngest player on the A-team, the team captain who almost made them the best in the country, the big star who went professional in the NHL, and finally the hero who returned home to become GM.

    Tails grabs hold of someone’s mother—he doesn’t know whose—and screams:

    “WHERE ARE WE FROM?”

    A moment ago they were all atheists. None of them is now.

    Some people say hockey is like religion, but that’s wrong. Hockey is like faith. Religion is something between you and other people; it’s full of interpretations and theories and opinions. But faith . . . that’s just between you and God.

    The Andersson family never plays Monopoly, not because the parents don’t want to, but because the children refuse. The last time they tried, Kira ended up holding the board over the open fire, threatening to burn it unless Peter confessed that he had been cheating. Their parents are so competitive that Maya and Leo simply refuse to play.

    What you create, others can destroy. Create anyway. Because in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and anyone else anyway.
