For me, my top lines are:

5. Jagr asking Brzy to go sit somewhere else at the team meal

4. Bryz telling us his dog is sexy.

3. Giroux telling Schenn this isn't the world juniors we don't jump into the glass.

2. Hartnell calling Malkin the ugliest player in the league!

1. Rupp telling Shelley he is irrelavent :)

For me, my top lines are:

All good ones. I thought Giroux was pretty amusing on the ice on a few occasions, asking Lundqvist if he could "put one behind you..just one Hank..." and also expressing disbelief that Rupp would mock Jagr by saluting after his goal ("really?...no way!...he's a legend..").

Brendan Prust comes across as an honest and funny guy, telling the always bizarre Sean Avery to take his sun glasses off at breakfast because he has "beautiful eyes". After a fight, he describes MA Bourdon as a "strong F**ker", in an on camera show of respect. On the other hand, I thought Rupp came off as a tool for his comment to Shelly because he's only marginally more relevant, his performance in that game aside. He's still a 4th liner. I also thought Del Zotto was a tool for telling Harry Z he "only play 4 minutes a game...". It was as bad as saying "I was a #1 pick..and you weren't".

Bryz in practice after a save on JVR said something like, "Not to-day Von Reems Dyke".

Rinaldo about Jagr and his legendary status: "He was on Sega Genesis. I didn't like to be Jags. I didn't like that type of player. I was Eric Lindros."

Giroux's entire conversation with Ott before the faceoff.

Giroux's entire conversation with Ott before the faceoff.

Also Lavy's exchange with Ott. I thought it was at least possible that Ott was being reasonable but iI didn't del that way after hearing the recording of the incident: "Show some respect and wait for my team to get off the ice...". Ott sounded like a tool and Lavy flipped him off.

yeah, those "go **** yourself"s were funny too

I have many favorite moments in the series but one that hasn't been posted yet and is maybe my favorite, .......... the ending.

"Never get caught telling a hockey player it's just a game. Never get caught trying to explain to him all the things in the world that matter so much more. His mind might well acknowledge the truth to your point, but his soul will be powerless to accept it. Considering the immensity of what he gives to the sport, and the immeasurably of all it offers in return.Nothing ever feels as perfect as a moment of flawlessness on the ice. No bond as strong as one that compels brothers to bleed for one another. Not many leaders are this versed in the craft of motivation. Not many pursuits evoke such visions of brilliance. This is why it hurts so much when skill falls short of what the will desires. This is why it's so unforgettable when absolute passion yields ultimate reward. And that's all still just the start of what the game can do to you. The stakes rise as their seasons continue from here. While you watch from a distance, remember what was validated up close. Hockey may in fact be just a game, but it's also who they are." but then it's even better with the music and visuals.

The whole scenario with Giroux and Ott was priceless, Ott bragging how great he is at faceoffs, Giroux winning the draw followed by a Flyer goal. I bet Ott doesn't watch 24/7 just for that reason alone.

I just thought it was awesome Giroux won it clean. To top it off with a goal puts it over the top. If I were Ott, between that and having to relive an opposing coach telling me to go **** myself, I wouldn't be tuning in any time soon.

That's my favorite right there. Genuinely funny. I'd love Prust in Orange & Black if his shoulders weren't mush.
