Evander Kane Is Not Pleased (Plus, Thrashers on HBO!)

Not everyone can be Evander Kane, Kaner.

Also: nice win in south Florida tonight, hooray!

Also also: HBO's 24/7 series on the Penguins and Caps might be the best HBO series ever, which is really saying something. The final installment (which aired tonight) almost made me weep.

P.S. Just watched the beginning of the final episode (which I missed, at first) and what do you know there are THRASHERS in it! Never thought I'd see Zach Bogosian on HBO.

Sigh...all good things have to come to an end, I suppose. Thank you NHL & HBO for doing something truly special over the last month. Hopefully they take the massive success of this show and build on it in the future.

Follow a team for a full season? Doubt that any NHL club would allow that...but a post-WC "Follow This NHL Team Through the Playoff Push" mini-series could be even bigger.

That's a good idea, GPY.

But they would have to find a team with a compelling story in their push to the playoffs. One with some good characters. A team that isn't "supposed" to be a playoff team.

Where could they ever find a team like that?
