Back When They Killed Just Players, Not The Whole League...
19 October 2004 | by (Dundalk, Canada) – See all my reviews

Pretty eclectic video fare... that is if the rightsholders had made it available as such. Better than average for a 1977 made-for-television movie. High-brow cast too, with Michael Moriarty joined by Meryl Streep, Jill Eikenberry, Kevin Conway and Mason Adams.

The film explores violence in pro hockey through the eyes of an American who learned it as a game, not a blood sport. Bobby Hull clone, Paul D'Amato plays his talented Canadian teammate who provokes a moment of passion that changes their friendship, not to mention the game, forever.

I'm sorry. Twenty-four years later, I still can't feel any revulse over seeing the guy who played Tim "Dr. Hook" McCracken ("Slap Shot") get skewered by Michael Moriarty.
