    Untold: Crimes And Penalties (Netflix Streaming):

    They were the bad boys of hockey – a team bought by a man with mob ties, run by his 17 year old son, and with a rep for being as violent as they were good. The story of the Danbury Trashers.

    UHL team (minor league hockey). Mobster’s son gets a team, and gotta give credit, he made it work not knowing what the hell he was doing in the first place. Honestly, even though I disapprove of his approach to the game (fighting > actual hockey), he made some very smart decisions in building the team. Well worth a watch.

    Definitely recommend this one, kinda reminds me of the ESPN 30 for 30 about the guy who tried to buy the Islanders, but better and somehow even more absurd. You couldn’t make up a fictional story like this without it seeming fake honestly. You could also tell how much that team meant to all the players and fans.
