Quotes

Jeff Daniels: Back when Detroit was truly the Motor City in, you know, the 40's... We were jammin' cars out of here. That's gone. You're living in a part of the country that everybody thinks is worthless. And the Red Wings have always been a salve for the city of Detroit.

Incredible
15 July 2019 | by tomhckySee all my reviews

I grew up in Denver and remember these years, the best years in hockey in my opinion. Die hard avs fan that has always hated the red wings but respected them. I respect them even more after seeing this film. Had me on the verge of tears towards the end.
