Storyline

This powerful tale of the NHL's early years follows Ted Lindsay, an all-star for the Detroit Red Wings, in his quest to create a Player's Association to protect the rights of players against the ravages of monopolistic, profit taking owners. Lindsay, spurred on by the memory of a former teammate who died broke because he couldn't access his pension, mobilizes players from around the league to his cause. Written by Binyamin Appelbaum

A great movie for people who love hockey.
15 January 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

This movie goes beyond the game, into the seamier side of sports. The backroom deals and exploitation of the early NHL and those players that were brave enough (and smart enough) to change the game. This movie also explains why some of those men in the Hockey Hall of Fame did more to be in the HOF than just play hockey. A great movie if you are a hockey lover.
