    Default NHLPA partners up with the PlayBook for...

    I'm not sure. Make of it what you will. Personally I think they could have chosen some better personalities (or at least more players from different teams).

    From the PA:

    "Move over Hollywood—5 players are moving behind the camera for an all-access look at their lives off the ice. From the dressing room to their living room and beyond, The NHLPA Players' Playbook delivers exclusive videos shot by the NHL players themselves."

    The players participating are Hartnell, his buddy Joffrey Lupul of the Toronto Maple Leafs; Marty Biron of the New York Rangers; Michael Grabner of the New York Islanders; and amateur film critic Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks.

    So, basically, five personable goofballs we can vicariously live through. Awesome.

    Besides having the potential for hijinks, this is also a big money deal between RIM and the NHLPA — yes, the timing is impeccable.

    I think it sounds fun. Maybe Kane from the Blackhawks will join in and take a PB on a taxi ride.

    I think it's either an app, video-chatting with them, or exclusive web-videos in the Pod-casts app! Whatever it is it may bring more fame to the Playbook!
    Have I really been here for three years?

    ...and Timmy T can jump in with him and shout "driver - to the White House, and step on it".

    Anyway, looks like fun and I'll keep an eye on it. Good for the PB.

    I can only see trouble ahead, especially if he moons it on the way past.

    Hartnell was filming with a PlayBook at the all star game last month.

    I'd like to see Hartnell or Ryan skate around with a playbook strapped to their helmet.

    Default Videos not working ON PLAYBOOK

    Anyone else having grief getting the videos on this site to start on their PlayBook? If so (I am under OS 2.0) it must be a bit embarrassing since it's supposed to be a marketing tool for the PlayBook!

    Otherwise the site is gorgeous!
