About the Movie
The California Golden Seals were one of the greatest hopes....and biggest disappointments of the NHL's 1967 Great Expansion from six hockey teams to twelve. During their nine-year existence the Seals made nearly every mistake possible. Their story includes white ice skates, orange pucks, future superstars that slipped through their fingers, a tragic on-ice death, an out-of-control owner, a female streaker, Tom Hanks, Wayne Gretzky, a cheerleader named Krazy George, and even the Hell's Angels. Yet despite enduring a nearly constant state of the turmoil, the Seals players would sometimes shock opposing teams….and themselves to deliver a lasting legacy to the game of hockey.
Golden Seal(s) of Approval
outstanding documentary with great footage and interviews from former players...great insight into what was a mercurial franchise with interesting players, fans, colorful uniforms, Crazy George, and a bombastic owner!
I highly recommend this video to any Seals fan or fan of hockey in general. There are excellent interviews with former players, press and even an interview with Wayne Gretzky. This tells she whole story from the league granting Oakland a NHL franchise to the demise in Cleveland. Great rare footage of games help tie the whole story together. I thoroughly enjoyed the video and only wish it was longer. I realize many hours went into the making of this video and the results show. Long live the Seals!
I just got done watching it and it was amazing
