Doesn't come close to espn's "The Season" , but we had so many more characters on that team.

And the narration is so slow.

Outta curiosity - did anyone catch what Quincey said to the waitress concerning the fan wanting to buy the guys a round of shots?

 

He said something to the effect of "tell him we'll do a round of fish tacos instead".


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

It always baffled me why fans would buy the players drinks.  Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Who cares if its boring or not? These are hockeyplayers not actors and some of them are introverted and don't like cameras all around them. This HBO thing is just starting to get annoying.

 

Personally, I'd tell them don't film me I am not comfortable infront of cameras and don't want you guys to follow me around, pleaser understand that.

I'm sure a lot of players have mentioned that ^^ I can't imagine Franzen getting a lot of screen time.

I think Datsyuk will have a prominent role in the upcoming episdoes
Nick kypreos is such a tool. What kind of opinion would he have on good television. He's just not supporting the show and all the sheep that listen to him will believe what he says.

The irony is that Nick Kypreos would have been great on 24/7 back in his day.  His nickname when he was a Ranger was Forrest Gump, because whenever the cameras were filming something important, Kypreos would be there.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I was underwhelmed by the episode.  I felt like HBO was just calling it in with this one, going through the motions.  About half way through the toaster scene, I was like "CAN WE PLEASE MOVE ON??"

You can't create drama. I think that episode nothing really even happened so yeah it was kinda boring. Still pretty cool. They should have shown something about how the plywood was put up in Florida would have been funny

True, but that's what a good producer/editor does.  They should be able to take boring material and make it interesting.  I enjoyed the episode, just thought it fell flat.

I think Episode 2 on Saturday will be much better. The 1st intermission against the Ducks...the OT win against the Flames...the episodes tend to get better throughout the weeks. Though the bar has been set very high throughout the past few seasons. IMO.

@iamtrevort: Even the camera crew from #HBO 24/7 was excited about the #Redwing win vs #Flames. I watched one high-5 another & say, we're off the snide!

Ha!  Given how superstitious hockey players are, they've probably been giving HBO the evil eye whenever they see them.

Speak of which, players are not on the suspension phone call? I thought it was weird he had to find out through his coach and not directly from the call itself.
