Pretty impressive to make the net move... could it be fake? some are suggesting that on other forums...

Its a Reebok add. That pretty much says it right there.

Sort of felt it was too good to be true, if you're good at physics you can actually confirm if it's possible or not.

Just by watching where the net ends up, you can tell that it's fake. His last shot lines the net up right where it should be. I don't buy it.

Its possible but obviously exaggerated. Particularly the one the lifts the net right off the ice and conveniently places it back on its pegs.

That being said i hate Reebok their gear is garbage.

Not possible. The puck would have to be moving MUCH faster than any human is capable of shooting it to actually move the net...just to answer the physics question.

Bettman did the editing.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's real, however I was wondering if it's a lighter net made just for the commercial.

hahaha Fake... if you watch the last couple shots.... the net moves before the pucks moves the twine.... sorry... but if crosby could really do that.... there would be more then a handful of other players that could... Weber Doughty and do I dare say Ericsson lol... The guy did register some pretty impressive shots in the AHL skills comp... Video is fake but cool idea i must say sucks it has to be Crosby...

On a more related note.... Can we please stop posting about this Kid..... Yes he is a great player... but Im sick of it being forced down my throat... I rather watch Stamkos rip one timers Shelf any day of the week...

I think this forum would be a lot better off with a rule along the lines of no Crosby threads unless its actually relevant. Seriously.

A puck weighs 6 ounces. A goal net weighs close to 70 pounds. That alone is enough to tell anyone with a brain that it's a fake. Smart idea for a ad, though. It's clearly viral, and the ad's point is that the stick provides a ton of extra power on your shot.

Why would it be fake? one of the posts were out? But another "let's bash Crosby Thread". now all we need is another "Bettmen sucks" threads...

A gumball, weighing 3 ounces can pierce your skull if it reaches terminal velocity. Weight vs weight is a terrible argument if you don't factor in speed. Anchor in one post like the video and I could find a friend to replicate it. A shot is like 100+ foot pounds, which is clearly enough to move a net.
