The clip Linden Explains the new concept from Slap Shot 2 Breaking the Ice (2002)
You still haven't told them.
I'm still waiting for the right moment.
Listen up, guys. Linden's got something very important he needs to tell you.
Guys, listen up. There's some things I have to tell you about this new league.
Ever heard of the Harlem Globetrotters?
We going against Globetrotters?
But they play basketball, no, Coach?
We don't play against the Globetrotters.
But you know when they play how it's a lot of fun,
and they do a lot of specialised tricks and there's razzle-dazzle?
That's what we're gonna do?
You guys have heard of the Washington Nationals.
The chumps that play against the Globetrotters? Right?
That's gonna be us?
I am sorry. I am Czech, maybe I not understanding.
We are to these people losing every game?
Something like that, yes.
Bullshit. We're getting fucked in the dick.
Yes. In the dick.
No. We're getting fucked in the ass.
It's about the money. Right?
I mean, we all got bills. Some of us got expensive mortgages.
Some of you got kids with high-school tuitions. Right?
And they're giving us per diem.
Fuck per diem!
Fuck the money! Don't you see what's goin' on here? We've been sold out.
If we go along with this, we can kiss our careers goodbye.
It's not true. We're playing real hockey as well.
