A lot of it isn't show though. I mean obviously they talk to players and coaches on the side, but it isn't that much of a distraction. The guys are at the rink on practice/game days. It just follows them around and some players take 10-20 minutes a week to talk about a few things on camera. I don't see the issue.

I can see that stuff happening, but it happens all the time. It's been quiet lately, but back when Subban was benched and was fighting at practice, they made a huge deal out of it. They'll make a story out of thin air. Plus, these documentaries are well-edited. Anything that is unnecessary rumour-fodder would be edited out. I just think it would be entertaining from a hardcore fan's standpoint and hilarious watching Subban and Gill joke around. Plus we can get to see Gauthier, Martin and their staff behind closed Bell Centre doors.
