The problem with the what if adds was that they started using things from this season instead of sticking to historic events of the past. Sure some things this year will be historic but not a week after they happen IMO.

Nice on though.

I think the whole 'instant history' aspect of them is cool. I just wish they were done to the same quality as the originals.

That ad was awesome, though.

God Bless the marketing company the NHL hired. They're putting out classic after classic!
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Great job by the marketing team.

Good idea to change it up a little.

I didn't want to be the one to say it, but yeah. See, NHL? You CAN market using other players. :D

These are hands-down the best commercials ever, and I've had mad love for some of the older hockey commercials. Oh, and the old Coast soap commercials too.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I still prefer the classic ones that show great old plays over the ones that show recent ones.

This new one is good though. Makes me curious as to how they will follow it up but if recent progression says anything the next one will have Chicago or Philly guys in it.

Yes this is a big Posted Image for the league on these ads. I can only imagine being asked questions after that. All 4 cups I had times where I just sat there and thought...wow. Amazing stuff
TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN, MUCH IS EXPECTED.
