      i like how you switched up the story of a princess and made it hockey theme how did you get this idea?

    • smanojlo7595 11:56 am on November 5, 2013 Permalink

      ♥ the book

      i don’t like to play hockey but i like watching it

      Cindy=Cinderella. Gold skate=glass slipper.

    • hwhiteho2462 12:16 pm on November 5, 2013 Permalink

      I think this book is telling everyone that has a dream to never give up! Even when there are obstacles you have to over come. I like that Cindy never let the blister sisters get in her way of trying out for the hockey game!

    • sbell3014 12:21 pm on November 5, 2013 Permalink

      Same here I’m not the biggest hockey guy but still I think its a good sport when played well. The bulldogs are a pretty good example how hockey SHOULD be played.

    • amcgowan7238 12:22 pm on November 5, 2013 Permalink

      I like that cindy dosent let anyone get in her way

    • sbell3014 12:27 pm on November 5, 2013 Permalink

      The only thing I don’t really understand is why the story is called “Splinters” but the word is only mentioned twice.

    • sbell3014 12:36 pm on November 5, 2013 Permalink

      She was the underdog that wasn’t the underdog.

    • kevin sylvester 3:50 pm on November 5, 2013 Permalink

      I was reading Cinderella, and I thought how silly it was that she wanted to go to a party. So I thought, “what would be a cooler life dream”? I always wanted to play hockey but, like Cindy, we didn’t have a lot of money… so all that became part of the story.

    • kevin sylvester 3:51 pm on November 5, 2013 Permalink

      Splinters is a hockey insult. It means you aren’t good enough to play, so you sit on the wooden bench. You get splinters from the wood in your pants.

      I was visiting my brother in Chicago. I couldn’t sleep and was watching a hockey game. I started playing around the story. It took me ten years to make it into a book!

      i don’t think it was about cinderella.it was just similar characters sort of like historical fiction but not true.

    • amrdjen4676 12:50 pm on October 23, 2014 Permalink

      I love how Paul was egar to find out who was going to win and thankfully it was the Montreal Canadians keep om reading more books and everyone keep up the great attitude

    Mike Leonetti’s “The Greatest Goal” read by The Hamilton Bulldogs 

    We are proud once again to have players of the Hamilton Bulldogs Hockey Club read this year’s Hamilton Bulldog’s Literacy Game story, The Greatest Goal, by Mike Leonetti.

    Enjoy!

     
    • azorzett 8:35 pm on November 4, 2012 Permalink

      What did the author use to try to make you sympathize with the character, Paul? Were they effective?

    • nzarac5877 7:51 pm on November 6, 2012 Permalink

      lol haha i read this book today

    • athersid0216 12:26 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      we read this book today and i thought it was good and i think that the author’s message is to never give up.I think that because when paul said that there is no use for canada the mom said there is still time paul didn’t belive her and paul gave up on team canada during the sumit series but team canada ended up winning.

    • egiordan5870 12:54 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      when we read the book today i thought the authors mesage was dont judge a team before u play , i think this because the hockey players were being to over confadent and thought they were going to smoke the soviet union but after all they were down 3 games , even though they came back to win it they could of lost because they needed to win 3 games and the soviet union had one

    • nalrasho7267 12:58 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      i think that the authers massge is to try your hardest beause when paul gave up he never tried to be pationt and the team tried thier hard thats how they were wining.

    • oward7891 2:42 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      when pauls dad wasent there

    • oward7891 2:43 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      hi

    • tlupton3468 2:47 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      The author made me sympathize , with Paul a canada hockey fan watching Canada vs the silviot union, and not having his dad, who loves hockey with him. Not being able to watch with Paul. I felt sad for Paul because I would like my family with me. And I felt happy at the end when Paul got to watch one of the games with his WHOLE family. That was a touching story that I like!

    • ssolimka3725 2:49 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      i feel for him because my dad didn’t make it to bthe girl giude parade because he had work just like paul.

    • tlupton3468 2:53 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      I feel SO bad for Paul. I understand that his dad is important. I think that when Paul is with his dad it makes a special moment more special!

    • zmilliga5003 2:54 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      awsome story great message

    • mkhan7383 4:13 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      i think that hockey is the best but when you`er going in trial it takes a lot of practice
      and hockey is fun so you should wacth it.

    • fkhan1459 7:06 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      wow it is a great story!

    • nzarac5877 9:18 pm on November 8, 2012 Permalink

      your right the book was about the game the score and too NEVER give up

    • tgray9056 7:05 pm on November 10, 2012 Permalink

      The story is told from Paul’s point of view. It helps you relate to Paul and what he is feeling. You feel sad for him when his dad has to go away on a work trip and when Canada was losing the tournament. He had felt so confident that Canada would win but it was starting to look like the Soviet Union would win. I felt sorry for him when the coach was telling him to pass the puck and he wanted to talk to his dad but his dad was away working.

    • Brian henderson 10:59 am on November 12, 2012 Permalink

      the bulldogs are the best. they are so awsome and bruiser is so cool because he hi fived me!!!!

      Nicolas, What was your favourite part of the story?

      Hi Anthony, What was your favourite part of the story?

    • lwilson5955 11:08 pm on November 13, 2012 Permalink

      when pauls dad leaves the author connects with the readers and make them feel sad and it also sympathized when at the end it makes us happy when he is with his dad

    • lwilson5955 11:11 pm on November 13, 2012 Permalink

      has anyone been reading 39 clues? i think its amazing

    • athersid0216 2:54 pm on November 16, 2012 Permalink

      the game was the best my favourite part was when the bulldogs scored.

    • yimran0639 5:04 pm on November 1, 2013 Permalink

      This was very heartwarming. Pauls Dad and Paul seemed to have agreat, confident relationship. To be honest, I think his dad shouldn’t have gone away!

    • astathak2004 12:48 pm on October 23, 2014 Permalink

      It was a good story I like when he got the Toronto maple leafs sweater I’m excited to go see the Bulldogs

    • aalam4815 12:50 pm on October 23, 2014 Permalink

      I really loved it when Paul would wait for his dad to get home and they would have more fun watching it together it’s really nice that Paul would want to watch the game with his father more then anything

    • astathak2004 12:52 pm on October 23, 2014 Permalink

      I’m so exited for the Bulldogs game

    • aalam4815 12:55 pm on October 23, 2014 Permalink

      I loved the bulldogs ever since I was a little kid
      I went to their game last year and I will be attending this year I can’t wait for the surprises they bring this year

    • amrdjen4676 12:57 pm on October 23, 2014 Permalink

      The bulldogs trip is one of my FAVOURITE trips of the year

    • Lauren 10:35 am on October 29, 2014 Permalink

      This is a great book the bull dogs are a fantastic team the book splinters reminded me of the saying never judge a book by its cover so don’t judge something before you have proof I can’t wait to see the Bulldogs this week and I hope they here me screaming I the stands even if you don’t win you will of shown you tried but I have confidence that you will win and I can’t wait to see the team play go Bulldogs go.

      I like how he practices with his grandpa then learns how to be a better goalie. Then he imagined himself as Jacques Plante talking to Toe Blake. Hoping he would be a great goalie ready to learn anything that would help him be a better goalie! 🙂
