For absolutely no good reason at all Gordon Bombay is handed the job of coaching Team USA's hockey team for the first and only (possibly because of their massive incompetency and corruption) Junior Goodwill Games, and instead of helping his mix of Ducks from the first movie and new stereotypes from this movie get better at hockey Gordon mostly abandons the team to make time for self-reflection and trying to hook up with any woman who wanders through his life.

Daniel Hayden is back via skype to talk about whether or not Team USA is really the villain in D2: The Mighty Ducks.
