Not Just For Ice Hockey Fans
6 February 2001 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

I had very low expectations for this film, but it was excellent through out. I think the film was set in the late 50's, but I am not really sure. As per the film, tickets then were $4 per game and players made approximately $10,000 for 7 months work. Better players made a little more. Players then, still made 50-100% more than average workers. I remember paying $2 to see ice hockey games, with Joe Public, in Baltimore (highest minor league). Today, I would have to pay $60 and travel 50 miles to Washington, D.C. to join the wine and cheese crowd. So, considering that, and the fact that players now average upwards to $2 million per year, I was prepared to be unsympathetic to the theme of this film. The theme being unionization of the players. On the other hand, the players of that era were vastly under payed. With my pre-existing beliefs nicely balanced, I could watch this film with an open mind. The film flowed nicely, without the Director injecting boring art house stuff in order to please the high brow, stuffy movie critics. I had no idea where the film was going or how it was going to end. I would give it 9 stars and a G rating. I am not willing to accept everything I saw in the film at face value. I am sure some facts were changed to manipulate audience opinions. No mention was made of the NFL where players were in the same financial boat.

The next time the NHL players go on strike, you might want to pop this movie in the VCR. Under this circumstance, Net Worth would only be worth 7 stars.
