Not very good
Not sure why people liked this show. It's like a 70's sitcom with some swearing in it, and nothing all that funny. What's worse, there's no hockey in it. Just a bunch of guys who say they play hockey, but I've watched 4 episodes now, and while there's stuff that happens on the ice, it's not actually hockey. It's like hockey is just some kind of marketing gimmick they use, but they don't seem to love or respect the game itself. I feel badly for Tiger Williams and Phil Esposito - genuine hockey legends - being exploited for something so banal. Hockey is an amazing game to play - and those who play it really love it. It's a game of power, skill, quickness, and creativity. Instead of really trying to portray people who love the game, they opted instead to rehash stereotypes of hockey fans as shallow and stupid.
