Default Net Worth

Has anybody else seen the CBC movie "Net Worth" from about five years ago?It was based on a book by the same name. It was about when Ted Lindsay from the Red Wings formed the very first NHLPA. It was very well done and the actor who played Gordie Howe was very good in it. Actually all the acting was very good and the writing as well. It is one of my top 3 favourite hockey movies. They are:

1.Slap Shot
2. Net Worth
3.Mystery Alaska

It's way older than 5 years, probably more like 10. I doubt anyone in the States has seen it since it's a Canadian production, but it was a really good movie, I admit... the actors actually looked like Howe and Lindsay too.

Slap Shot is a definite classic!!

Wow! I just checked IMDb and your right lmanchur, it is from 1995. Where does the time go? I taped it when it first aired and have had it ever since but i didn't think it 's been 10 years! I've tried looking to see if it's available on DVD but so far no such luck. Anyway for those who are interested you can check out the reviews at:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0113956/

Haha, that was just a guess but I knew it was definitely older than 5 years

I'm sure CBC could get a copy if you were looking for one personally... but you just said you taped it so nevermind

That movie can be found on Ebay most of the time. I have many hockey movies, and will name a few of them in a later post.
