If you haven't noticed, I'm a big fan of The Mighty Ducks trilogy. The series of 90s Disney movies aren't the best hockey films ever made but came along at the right time for me to have a real sense of nostalgia over them. How much? Enough where I'll sit down and watch D2 on television at 11 p.m. on a Sunday night after stumbling across it.
While I can't count (or want to admit) the number of times I've seen each Mighty Ducks movie, it doesn't matter because every time I watch one there is something new to discover. Last night was no different.
Maybe it was because of the NHL Lockout being on everyone's mind but the adjacent headline after Team USA beat Italy stuck out like a sore thumb. Whether it is 1994 or 2012, Donald Fehr is always there...even in fictional children's movies.
How eerie is that?
