I'll vote as soon as I finish taping my knuckles

Eric of Off Wing Opinion asks:

Has Miracle knocked Slapshot out of the top spot for the greatest hockey movie of all time?

The comments are interesting and amusing, and personally, while I liked Miracle a lot, it doesn't top Slapshot.

The movies are so different, it's hard for me to say one is better than the other. I just watched the bonus material on the Miracle DVD last night, though, and seeing the footage of Herb Brooks talking to Kurt Russell and the crew and seeing the effort they put in to recruiting players to act the roles really made me appreciate the respect they had for the story. And that Olympics was a huge moment in my childhood. So while I think Slapshot is funnier, if I had to choose between only getting to keep one of the movies, I'd pick Miracle.

Of course, I know Slapshot by heart anyway...

"Miracle," while it is the greatest Herb Brooks movie of all time, still is not the greatest hockey movie of all time. After all, I didn't see Ross "Mad Dog" Madison in "Miracle" anywhere, did you?
