Well, you can take your pick this year.  The NHL is doing their own version of 24/7 for every one of the outdoor games.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Why is the NHL suddenly trying to become a bigger franchise than Glee?

Good thing they didn't do it last season.  It would have been 12/3.5, which would have been a half-assed effort.

Actually, the same guy who does the HBO version is doing this, so It should be ok.  The only real difference I see working against them is probably the PG Rating Instead of R on HBO.

Well the league is being controlled by a bunch of idiots, midgets and some piss poor owners who shouldn't even have a franchise in the first place. Can't wait for contradiction to around 24 - 28 teams..the sooner the better and this will - of course - be the time when the midget will get the boot finally.

As much as I hate Bettman he's under direction of the owners, and the owners seem to be particularly greedy in my book (granted they're operating a niche sport that makes less money, so they have to skimp when they can). Buttman and co's dealings have almost always benefited the pocket books of the owners and have done the opposite of growing the sport, despite his claims, IE Atlanta moving to WPG and PHX soon to be moved back north among a million other things. If the NHL's owners wanted to grow the sport they would hire a hockey guy. If the NHL owners wanted to profit off of our undying devotion to our popularly irrelevant teams, they would have hired Bettman. Guess who still has that job.

The Kardashians on their most low-key, invisible day possible are a bajillion times bigger than the NHL's biggest event.

It actually sounds interesting. Focusing on one or two players per team, and following them during the Olympics (best part). It's not like we are flooded with behind-the-scenes shows, as long as it's good I don't see a problem. Not a fan of the many outdoor games, but this at least brings something positive.

I hope we can give the national audience some nice clips of home overtime/shootout losses.

Only if he's given the same amount of creative freedom with what he shows (minus language) as HBO gives. Somehow, I seriously doubt that will happen.

I can't wait to hear Holland's infamous catchphrases on this show.


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

There will be a segment where holland sits at his computer and scrolls through players on the trade market saying "too expensive...not soft enough...scores too many goals..."


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?
