Who will be the star of the show?

by Adam Kimelman
The Flyers don't lack for over-sized personalities, so it'll be interesting to see which player or players steal the show when HBO's cameras start trailing the Philadelphia players and coaches for this year's installment of the "24/7" show.

"I guess I've got to show them something new," said one of those big personalities, team captain Chris Pronger. "Bring out my 'A' game."

Defenseman Matt Carle isn't someone who electrifies a room when he enters it, but he has a few good ideas who might draw the bright lights of the cameras.

"You got Scott Hartnell, he really stands out," Carle told "I think a guy that's really going to take everybody off guard, getting to know him early on here, is Ilya Bryzgalov. I'm sure people in Phoenix are used to his personality, but for us, I just met him a few weeks ago, he's that funny character."

James van Riemsdyk could be a star if he plays up to his vast potential, but he agrees with Carle in that Hartnell could steal the spotlight.

"We got Max Talbot in there, he's got some personality, he's an interesting guy," van Riemsdyk told "Scott Hartnell is a fan favorite here, too, so I think he's going to be somebody they'll get a kick to see doing his thing behind the scenes."
