I loved the series and I think its great for the NHL. But would you want to see the Wings in one of these series? I think It would be really cool to see our Wings behind the scenes but, then again do you think it would be distracting? Some Caps alluded that the HBO crews made it harder for them to get out of their losing streak, sounds more like and excuse. I'm for more 24/7 but not sure how it would affect the Wings.

already was one pretty much called ESPN: Detroit Red Wings: The Season. Although I would't mind seeing one newer one and get some epic Datsyuk quotes.

i dont think the caps can blame HBO for the losing streak, especially when the pens were on their winning streak. it sounds more like it was coincidental that the losing streak and filming were the same time.

and how could they not do it again? i dont think there was a single hockey fan that didnt like the series. i mean, we all hate the pens it seems like, but we watched it and enjoyed it anyway. why not put the wings in there though? whats the worst that can happen? we got on an 8 game losing streak but still win the division and make the playoffs anyway? id sacrifice 2 weeks of heartache to get the back stage look on our players and their personal lives, the same players we love and cheer for every game.

All I know is, the non hockey pundits over on ESPN really dig this series. I even heard them say it was the best look at sports ever, even giving it higher marks than NFL films.

I don't think the extra exposure to the Wings would make me hate or love them more than I do so I am indifferent to them being involved.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

would love to see more 24/7. Even though I dont like the Penguins and the Capitals, I found this series to be very interesting to watch. Again: I would love to see more 24/7-hockey stuff from HBO :)

Before HBO's 24/7, there was ESPN's Detroit Red Wings: The Season

Got FSD setup with all it's glory.  Plan to have pre and post game coverage along with Wingspan and 24/7.  Youtube page: RedWingsLive1

Same here. I don't have any real feeling towards either team, but I thought 24/7 was great television. I'd love to see the Wings do one. The Season on ESPN was great, and it was a much more surface experience than 24/7, I thought.

Being covered by HBO especially 24/7 you had to expect the series to be covered with great emotion and it showed. I absolutely loved watching the series. I've gained more respect for some players I thought were complete douches. Also, the final episode I found to be really emotional, I'm not sure it was but the outdoor arena part with the kids hit me pretty hard and the final 5 minutes where they were playing exogenesis pt 3 by muse was amazing. The passion they put into the show and showcased it was beautiful.

Only question is, what team will it feature along with Pittsburgh this time around? ;)

I'd love to see the kinds of things that go on in New Jersey's dressing room this season.
