about this title on
The Independents is a minor league hockey team that prides itself on three qualities above all: loyalty, friendship, and teamwork. The team becomes plagued with mistrust, deception, and lies (both on and off the ice) when a few up and coming players decide that they would rather make names for themselves. Fueled by jealousy, they'll stop at nothing to destroy the team's star players all in an attempt to advance their own careers. Written by
One team.... Two sides.
