Comments

A documentary on the Soviets who came over to the US in the 90s and joined the Detroit Red Wings. The stories and interviews were great and insightful. It gives you some insight into just how locked down those players were by the Soviet government and how difficult it could be to get them here. For those of us who hated those Wings teams (for winning, obviously), it was a new look at the people behind the games.

If you’re a hockey fan, watch it.

Rating – 8 Soviets out of 10
