I'm going to just flat out say it; Giroux comes off like a ****ing *******. He's already so arrogant (and for the posters about to drop the "well he's the leading scorer in the NHL argument; that's no excuse to be a c ock. Look at Jagr, look at Gaborik, Hank... All of these guys have more pedigree than Giroux and half of the arrogance). I hate his attitude.
I've noticed it and a few other posters say they've noticed it aswell. When it's brought up, nobody knows what we're talking about. I'm just glad it's not just me.
They are also going for the "underdog rangers vs. contender flyers"
We have a 19-8 record, yet you wouldnt know it from that show. Seems they casually forget to turn the cameras on after a win.
HBO isnt happy enough just to let things unfold as they go, they have to script it somehow. Pathetic.

They way they cut it, you would think that the Flyers are a team of destiny while the Rangers are lucky to be in the NHL. They spent 20 minutes cutting around the bad game in STL, then the win in PHO is almost a footnote.
Don't know what you were watching.
It was pretty clear to me that this episode they put an emphasis on the practice facility, travel, and the equipment managing aspect. I thought it was really interesting, but I can see how others would want more raw footage of the action, more hank/other star players etc. I thought the scene where Torts was doing the video practice, where he praised MDZ and Eminger was brilliant.
I don't get the complaints, to be honest. I thought most of us would be beyond thrilled to have unprecedented access to our favorite team.
