I don't give a shit where I play as long as I go number one in the draft and I sign the biggest contract I can. I've been busting my ass in this league for four years, and I'm gonna get what's coming to me.

A typical 80s film with every small bit thrown in for good measures- action, romance, anger and sex. The ladies get to see a young Rob Lowe in his prime and others get an okay story about an American hockey player who plays in the Canadian league. Patrick Swayze also stars and you can even spot a really young Keanu Reeves somewhere in there. All in all this is one of those Sunday afternoon films you can watch when nothing else is on.
