I learned A LOT from this movie

This is one of the best documentaries I've ever watched. To be honest, I didn't know very much about hockey before I watched the movie. I live in a small town in Kansas, and hockey typically isn't too popular in the state. I really enjoyed hearing about the history of the enforcer and learning about the enforcer's point of view. After watching this documentary I was sad to hear that the number of enforcers are dwindling.
