Favorite Hockey Movie?

What's your favorite hockey movie?  I was just gonna put Slapshot for all 4 options, but I figured I would at least pretend like the other films have a chance.

Miracle, mainly because it is (or at least pretends to be) based upon an historical story. And the story of the 1980 Olympic team is incredible.

I want to say Miracle but really it's Slapshot. ;)

"Old time hockey!" has become a sort of catchphrase for my husband and me - it's his favorite hockey movie too.
