Chances are that most of our younger American readers were first exposed to the sport of hockey thanks to the Mighty Ducks movie franchise.
Sandwiched in between other classic hockey flicks like Slap Shot and Miracle, the Mighty Ducks was the story of a ragtag group of kids with plenty of love for hockey (and none of the skill required to succeed), taken over by a disgruntled coach who would end up turning around the team and his outlook on life all in one season.
Naturally, the squad would go on to play in international tournaments, simply by adding a cowboy and a fast kid who never learned how to stop.
The Mighty Ducks series is essential viewing for any young sports fan, and even fans outside of Anaheim might have trouble watching real NHL games without catching glimpses of the films.
So, if the film were recast using modern NHL players, who would earn the big-name roles?
Here are my choices for the all-NHL cast of the movies. Add your thoughts (and cast the characters I skipped) in the comments section below.
