What are the worst hockey movies of all-time?
It’s nearly Academy Awards time, which means that it’s time to think about a genre of cinema that’s truly given us some of the seminal classics of our time. And when you’re finished thinking about sweeping historical wartime epics, why not spend another 15-18 seconds considering hockey movies, won't you?
Yes, hockey movies, of which there are several besides “Slap Shot”. Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated listed his top five and bottom five (or so) of all-time this week. And just like revealing that Cobie Smulders is actually a ghost in “Safe Haven”*, we’ll just go ahead and spoil the list for you:
5. Mystery, Alaska (1999)
4. The Rocket (2005)
3. The Deadliest Season (1977)
2. Goon (2011)
1. Slap Shot (1977)

Youngblood is a classic, same with The Mighty Ducks trilogy. I would have atleast included Slapshot 2 over both of those movies.

I came in here to post The Love Guru. It was an awful movie considering who was in it. A lot of big names for a dud of a film.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

The Love Guru is a movie that's so bad, it's actually kind of enjoyable to watche. Justin Timberlake's character is actually pretty funny. But yes, it's an absolutely awful movie.
The best part is Mariska Hargitay's cameo#1 Collection: Barrasso

Wow...I guess no one has exactly the same taste but I hated Goon with a passion...Loved the first two Mighty Ducks, Mystery Alaska was great but to me, the best one has to be the Rocket...I guess it helps that it's about Maurice Richard and that I'm from Quebec lol...In Quebec we also have this TV show called Lance et Compte (Shoot and Score) which is about hockey. It started back in the 80s for like 4 seasons, then it was cancelled during the 90s and they brought it back around 2007 and it's still on. They also made a movie out of it in 2010 which I think is really good as well :)

Might Ducks #2 and Miracle are my favorites.
That Iceland team was stacked though.
