Storyline

Barely 19, Grant 'Coco' Fuhr became starting goalie for the most exciting team in NHL history. In his mid-30's, he played 79 games in an 82-game season to set a league record, then followed that iron-man performance by playing 73 the following season on a completely rebuilt knee. During the decade and a half between, he employed his acrobatic style and cat-like reflexes to backstop five Stanley Cup champions and two Canada Cup winners, cementing a reputation as the ultimate "money goalie". He also got himself demoted to the minors for calling the hometown fans jerks, announced his retirement at the age of 26 in an attempt to force a famously hard-nosed general manager to renegotiate a long-term contract, and was suspended for an entire NHL season for conduct deemed "dishonourable and against the welfare of the league" for cocaine use, only to return and redeem himself as one of the game's true greats.
