  • show Description
  • Ruthless New York sports agent Brett Parker returns to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario intending to move their NHL franchise, the Hamilton Steelheads, to Houston for a pile of cash. Once home, however, Parker becomes the team's new General Manager after the current GM dies in front of him. He sets out to turn the bumbling team around, while forging a relationship with his estranged daughter and clashing with the Steelheads' equally ruthless corporate president. The series was made in Toronto, and aired for two seasons on CTV. In the US, UPN bought the show, but yanked it after two episodes. Hamilton, Ontario is a real city. The Spectator is really their newspaper, and Copps Coliseum, where the Steelheads play, is a real arena. The Steelheads, however, are an entirely fictional team. Their name is a play on the fact that Hamilton is the steel town of Ontario. The steelhead is also a fish, which is the team's logo.moreless

  • Quotes (11)

    • Brett: (to Hartman, talking about Colleen) Hey, listen, I have worked for her and I have worked against her, ok, plenty and she is the biggest bitch on wheels and if it weren't for her, McArdle would have gone mams up like five years ago because she also happens to be one of the most capable executive I've ever met...

    • Colleen: I cut your throat before and I will do it again without thinking and without caring if you do not start to do what I tell you. Is that clear? Brett: Anger suits you, ya know, which is good seeing how you're so angry so much of the time. Colleen: Just you watch me....

    • Duff: I hate to be late for anything unlike the Yanks...always late. You take the two World Wars. They were tardy to the party on both occasions, weren't they? Colleen: Duff, Mr. Hartman and his associates are all Americans. Duff: (to Hartman and his associates) Oh, really, All-American? What school did you play for?

    • Renata: I'd like to talk to you. Rose: Sure. Renata: Keep quiet. Rose: Well, that'll be one sided.

    • Renata: (to Brett) Mr. Parker, I am nothing like your conscience. For one thing, I exist.
