NHL, Leafs Give Green Light

from the Toronto Star,
What makes this movie even more unique is that the NHL and the Maple Leafs — part of a sport where no player has ever come out of the closet — have given the filmmakers their blessing to use their logos and uniforms. The Leafs have even agreed to let them do some filming with them at the end of a practice next month.... Leafs general manager John Ferguson, for his part, said it wasn't hard for them to give the project the go-ahead after it got the green light from the NHL, which had screened the script. "On our end, we're certainly not trying to make a statement," said Ferguson. "We agreed to host them and we're comfortable with it." Don Cherry, on the other hand, may not be quite as comfortable. "I know that Gary Bettman wanted a kinder and gentler league, but this is too much," a laughing Cherry told the Star's Chris Zelkovich.
