About the Film

By 1996, the once-dominant New York Islanders were in serious trouble. Lousy performances and poor management were driving away the franchise’s loyal fans. When all seemed lost, John Spano, a charismatic Dallas businessman, swooped in to save the team with a $165 million buyout. This is the beginning of the jaw-dropping true story of one of the NHL’s biggest scandals. Director Kevin Connolly, of HBO’s ENTOURAGE, showcases the rise and fall of the team through fantastic archival footage and eye-opening interviews, including the only one Spano has ever given about the Islanders’ deal.
