The guest on PHA Podcast #3 is film producer and hockey fan Mark Greczmiel, who has produced an entertaining documentary on the California Seals hockey franchise, one of the six expansion teams added to the NHL in 1967.
The nine-year NHL saga of the Seals includes everything from white ice skates and orange pucks, to disastrous trades and an out-of-control owner. From future hockey stars like Reggie Leach, Dennis Maruk and Charlie Simmer, to a female streaker and a cheerleader named Krazy George. From the creation of the World Hockey Association, to a tragic, on-ice death.
Players that appear in the documentary include include Gilles Meloche, Charlie Simmer, Dennis Maruk, Reggie Leach, Gary Smith, Walt McKechnie, Bert Marshall, and others.
In addition to player interviews, the film includes an amazing collection of never-before-seen photos, rare broadcast footage, home movies, and news stories that haven't been seen in more than 40 years.
