Quite a cool vid, but not been gripped by this years playoff promos. Don't think they quite grab the excitement for me. That being said, I was more excited than a kid at Christmas at the moment!

Lets Go Wings

EDIT: Embedded vid instead of linking

I'm surprised they have an octopus being thrown in the video.

Thanks for posting this. :thumbup: They had one on the NHL Network today that featured only Datsyuk. It was great too.

From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

Don't swing it on the ice surface though, against the rules!

the voice is terrible, at least pick an epic voice with balls.

That's my problem with this years ads too.....The guy just sounds like such a nerd.

The guys voice isn't that great but if you go with the overall feel of the ad I still love it. Especially with the personalization they've given teams.

Thought it was a real nice touch to put the clip of Konstantinov with the cup in there.

Maybe it's a conspiracy to increase their funds through team and personal fines!

After his Carhartt ad, Mickey Redmond should do all Wings videos. He would be awesome saying all the lines in this advert.

The guy's voice drives me nuts too. They need the Allstate guy with the deep, resonant voice. I love his voice.

Still... this video rocks. I'm glad they got so many epic moments- Mac's goal, Vladdy, etc. The flying sea creature was a good add too.

Give me Jack Bauer!

Sutherland's voice overs back in the 2002 cup finals were epic.... There is a reason he did an entire movie where his character was nothing but a voice. Phone booth

I agree very cool vid though. I'm starting to get pumped for the playoffs.

I thought of him too!

But they'd need to add several seconds since his voice was kind of drawn out and grand.

Sweet, had not seen this one yet. I liked the flying octopi too! It's a long shot, but I'm thinking maybe the NHL had a contest for the adverts and this kid or his production team won? That's the only logical reason I can come up with as to why they went with his voice.

I think he sounds like the kid from 'Loose Change'.
