I am sure some of you guys saw the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs commercials last night on HNIC. One with Stevie is coming!!!

There will be six moments featured in the commercials: Bobby Orr's Cup-winning goal in 1970, Mark Messier and his guarantee, Mario Lemieux splitting the Minnesota North Stars defense during the 1991 Cup, Ray Bourque finally capturing the Cup, Patrick Roy leading the Montreal Canadiens to the Cup in 1986 during his rookie season, and Steve Yzerman's double-overtime goal against the St. Louis Blues in 1996.

That's awesome. Him scoring that goal and accepting the cup in 97 are just career defining moments.

I know they are trying to focus on moments created by superstar type players but I'd love to see them do one of McCarty's goal against Philly in 1997.

Or how about one from game 6 in 1999, starting with a shot of Bret Hull's foot in the crease? :yowza:

Wonder if they will show Hull's goal against Hasek. That's a good one, 2 HOF'ers.:P

ACK, didn't see your last line rick. good call tho.

Roy and Bourque's sound like they will be a bit odd as they are not based on one play like the others. They are both legends and deserve to be apart of these ads so it'll be interesting to see what they will do with them.

How about one with Malkin throwing punches at the end of Game 2 last year? Fights backwards are funny. Or maybe get one of Bettman in his office rescinding the game misconduct?

You do realize that was a legal goal as the rule was in 99?

You know why?

The puck was already in the crease. Hull swatted a rebound of his own shot at Hasek. The rebound was headed out of the crease. As Hull spun to his forehand, his skate left the crease. During this time, a Buffalo player skated across trying to gather the puck, but failed. His skated kept the puck in the crease, knocking it off Hasek as this happened. As Hull completed his turn, his left skate entered the crease. The puck, still in the crease, was in perfect shooting position for Hull, who banged it home.

The rule was that if a player entered the crease BEFORE THE PUCK that the goal was illegal. That did not happen in this case. Also, if a player is in possession of the puck, his skate may enter the crease before the puck does. No other player ever gained possession after Hull's shot, meaning Hull could legally enter the crease and shoot the puck from outside, and the goal would still have been legal.

Legal goal under two different sections of the rule. Sorry.

those commercials are actually fantastic. NHL Marketing is really, really great at them.
the only thing they fu* up is when they touch the "everybody love Sindy" theme. but as long
as this series stays with Lemieux, Orr, Roy, Stevie Y, or Mess or even Dave Andreychuk...
it should be great. just don't embrace brillant ideas of Gary and spare us the "ancient history"
of NHL with Sindy Crosby winning the cup

Jeez Eva, lighten up.

First off, I was trying to be funny.

Secondly, I never said it was an illegal goal.

But it was definately one of the more memorable Stanley Cup Finals moments of the last 20 years and the play involved two hall of famers.

none can compare to the Bobby Orr goal. I'm glad they are making one of Yzerman but I don't see how they can make that seem very dramatic, unless they use some crazy editing or camera angles that I've never seen.

I STILL do not understand the goal Orr scored being such a great one. He shot the puck before being upended.

Didn't Z score a goal being upended with his back to the goal? That one is better than Orr's "flying" goal!!

Does anyone remember Yzerman's goal against the Pens in '89? He had a breakaway and was tripped and while in the air, scored an awesome goal. The game was on ESPN as I was stationed in Albany, GA and pretty much the only game that showed the Wings on national TV that year.

There is a lot of drama associated with Yzermans's OT winner. Rewinding the shot will be cool especially since the shot went bar down perfectly.I mean, the celebration that ensued was crazy and I am sure they will include his mauling in the commercial. I'm excited to see it as I am sure everyone else is.

The Yzerman goal, if it makes it into these promotional adds, will be awesome.

But doesn't anyone else find it weird that this seems like the only one that they're planning that features a play made by a player in a playoffs where his team didn't go on to win the cup?

Pretty sure that the Orr, Lemieux, Messier, Roy, and Bourque moments will all concetrate on cup winning runs.

Is there a concrete highlight such as the goal in 96 in the 97, 98 or 02? I am not entirely sure that there is a more iconic goal than this one. That said, its a shame this goal did not happen a year later (in this context only).

Great commercials...

Anybody want to take a stab at what the "inspirational text" of the 4 remaining commercials might be?

"What if Gretzky wasn't so Great?"

"What if Stevie Y hadn't been The Captain?"

"What if Roy hadn't done the Statue of Liberty?" (I know... doesn't pertain to the 1986 season.)
