Although it will be interesting to see what's going on in the Wings locker room, I have reservations about this reality TV. It tends to bring out the diva in the weak ones, messes with ones head, the constant cameras and attention...look what it did to Bryzgalov in Philly? Or Avery in NY. I think it was the final nail in the coffin for him. Looking at how some people get to being in front of cameras, I cringe at the thought of some of the Detroit 'mystique' being laid bare for all to see. I know Babs isn't thrilled with it because it can be a huge distraction, especially for the young guys. Listen to Howie and Smith's comments, these guys can't wait to get in front of the camera.
No, I say concentrate on the game, do away with this MTV reality type manufactured drama.
Not too worried, these guys are used to media and reporters. It will be a bit more intimate and invasive but we have a pretty level-headed group and guys like Z, Pav and Alfie will be quick to reel anyone in if they get a big head.
Can't wait to get an inside look at Babs & Co. in the locker room, and for a guy like Pavel to maybe, maybe finally get that big spotlight on him that he deserves. HD, proffessionally shot footage of him in practice and game action? Yes please. If they can capture his humour as well he'll be the star of the show.
Should be some good storylines with Alfie vs. Ottawa, us against Leafs of course and just our move to the East.
In what should be a fun season regardless, 24/7 is the icing that will make it even more memorable.
