I think last year the Penguins and the Caps already had started some early interviews and promo's which were seen on NHL.com

Yes, I believe being selected for the Winter Classic was contingent on giving HBO cameras full access.

Yeah I am pretty sure that they had to do the HBO series to play in the Winter Classic

Oh Baby! I am SURE Fire is steaming out of Tort's head right now knowing he has to let HBO access to his team in the dressing room and such. HE hates Publicity inside the confines.

Yes, there will be HBO 24/7 for the Winter Classic (from what I know).

This. I am so pumped for Ranger hockey, but am also so pumped to watch 24/7. Love all those sports access shows where we can see what players are like behind the scenes. Just pray we arent on a losing streak at that point of season.

The NHL has not confirmed the Rangers-Flyers Winter Classic. It's on the schedule but there has been no announcement promoting the event on NBC.

I just hope if we are going to be on HBO, that it doesn't become a distraction to the team. I can see a lot of things going unsaid from Torts, because he doesn't believe a lot of things should be out in public.

That being said tho, I can't wait to watch it!

Correct. If you say no to cams and all access the team won't be selected for the Winter Classic.

The logistics of getting interviews with players who are scattered all over the world for the summer are just too difficult. Expect to see more PR / marketing sometime towards the end of camp.

Absolutely cannot wait to see this. Will definitely be awesome to see some behind the scenes stuff. Hopefully the locker room renovations are done by then so we can see them!

I'm not exactly sure Torts had much say in it. I would think he would've said no if asked. he would say it's a distraction. But the revenue must be astronomical between the game and the show. Other than that I can't see it helping the team all that much.

Could be intersession but even still, Jan. 2 is a national holiday.

Said it before, this team doesn't need HBO cameras to go through slumps during the season, we do it every year on our own anyway.

Our Winter Break ends on the 1st. I guess a private school for EMS does things differently. I'm not quite sure if I come back on the 2nd or 3rd. I'm pretty sure I come back the 2nd...

I'm praying for a night game.
