You know I really liked that one but at the same time, the fact they made that one in particular showed why they had to stop making them. A first round goal for a team that went out in the second round. Hell, nobody remembers 99% of the goals Gretzky or Orr scored in the first round of the playoffs the years they won Cups.

"Because it's the Cup" could be a good campaign if they hadn't lost sight of what makes sports and the Stanley Cup in particular great - passion, emotion, dreams, the tension and the relief, the heat of the action, attack and defense. It's war by other means. You don't bring that across with some dweeby dude narrating it like an Apple commercial and visuals straight out of a light beer commercial.
