Can the Canucks have their own docu-reality series?

I've seen a couple episodes of Oil Change and now 24CH (for the Habs) and wondering/hoping the Canucks can do something similar. I'm a big fan of the 24/7 HBO series which really seems to have started this trend.

The only downside is that it could be a distraction/annoyance for the players..but as a fan, i'm all for it.

would be great for fans of the team. Would also be great because it would be the only Canadian team actually winning and making the playoffs.

from what I remember reading in the past, Gillis does not want the distraction with this team... and I can't say I disagree with him. I'm a bigger fan of this team succeeding then seeing them in some "docu-reality."

And this team hasn't proven that they can succeed through distraction to begin with.

As much as I'd love to see that, I'd rather they not have the distraction.

Ouch. Good points. I'm a little torn by the idea of it, but honestly some cameras following them around is probably nothing that new to them.

Be great for the fans, but I wouldn't want it to happen to be honest. Too much of a potential distraction.

Do not want. Who needs the distraction.

win the cup, then get the TV show, team doesn't need the distraction until they've gone all the way

I'd be all over watching it. Mad there hasn't been a behind the scenes thing on them so far

leave these documentary series for teams that need to give their fans a pep rally. I'll take our level of success over some silly TV show any day. I'm actually surprised toronto and calgary haven't gotten their own show yet...

they haven't? I thought I saw "Flaming out" and "Reimer + Scrivens " on my PVR


lack of creativity on both, but it's the thought that counts

Funny... I swear I could've seen that phrase before when it comes to Valentine's.

How about they just do a show that follows Aaron Rome around 24/7 instead?

I would watch it.

Can't believe so many people are down on the idea. It would be great. If teams like the Pens and Philly can handle the ''distraction'' I don't know why the Canucks couldn't.

Better. The year after. That way we can watch the main board whine about how much attention Vancouver is getting.

Bryz was brutal after he gave the lecture on the universe.
