He didn't come off as dickish to me. If anything, my opinion of him improved. Seems like a good guy.


Now Todd Bertuzzi on the other hand...sitting alone in a dark room drinking Corona w/ lime....major ******

Honestly, that was boring as hell.

There are no personalities that will draw a crowd or maintain interest. While Babcock is well spoken, FAR too much time was spent on him. Same with Carlyle.

The highlights were the Wings small group dinner and the Lupul fight. Unfortunately, that took up only about 5 minutes of the entire episode.

Same here, I was basically just wishing for it to end the whole time because I didn't exactly want to turn it off & possibly miss something.

Two boring teams with not much personalities on them, I guess Lupul could be one but it seems like he got calmer/more mature as the years have gone on.

Babcock is probably the most uninteresting man in hockey, everything he says usually revolves around hard work or something along those lines.

Haven't seen it yet, but I wonder if players and coaches are more careful now after seeing how Bryzgalov got demonized because of the show. Two years ago, he went from "he's a quirky, hysterical guy" to "he really might be a complete lunatic" just over the course of the series.

You're mad because he married Jack Bauer's daughter, I get it you wanted the Girl Next Door

I think no team wants any one of their players to be a laughing stock like Bryz was for Philly, the episode wasn't bad, but it wasn't that good either

Phaneuf was a tool well before this show. HBO just confirmed it for everyone. Hot wife though.

Derek Engelland got an in-person hearing for basically the same hit that got Clarkson two games. Further proof that NHL is only concerned about the results of these hits.

Hey, remember when Wild fans were saying Jason Zucker was a better(and going to be better in the NHL) player than Matt Read. That was pretty funny.

I think it's good to get coach intros out of the way in the first episode, then cover some "catch you up on some stories" stories...like Alfredsson on a new team, Datsyuk and his injury, Lupul and his injury(ies), Clarkson signing and Phaneuf's famous wife and dirty hit.

I'm really surprised more wasn't talked about with Kessel and Zetterberg, but i hope this proves as a bit of a launching pad for Datsyuk, he's still extremely underrated to casual/non-fans. Great personality too...but he's close friends with Bryz, I wonder if he'll avoid the interviews.

First episode wasn't great, not as entertaining as the Flyers or Caps one. Still enjoyed it though. Hopefully it will come along.

When Read was Zucker's age he was just a freshman at Bemidji State.

The NHL has always been clear that the punishment will be more severe if the victim is injured by the act.

Weird that Jimmy Howard writes and catches with his left hand.

I'd be the same way. Since I shoot left, and write left handed, I'm actually really good at catching with my left hand too.

First episode wasn't too bad but nothing special either. Honestly, every 24/7 series from here on out is going to pale in comparison to the Flyers Rangers one simply because of Bryzgalov.

we shouldn't have traded Harry Z, now he's top 6 forward with the Pens Homer should be fired for doing such a stupid move.

I'm not too familiar with the Penguins regular lines but I'm willing to bet he's only in the top 6 because Malkin, Bennett, and Neal aren't playing.

Yep, something like that.

And it's not like they have awe-inspiring depth to begin with.
