I'm not the biggest fan of this ad campaign, but it's starting to grow on me.

Big fan of this one and the Henrik one.

definitely not as magical as last year's version, but I still think they're great--the Sedin twins one especially. would be nice if they had a version every year.

I think they could have picked someone better for the voice-overs.

Voice is terrible. Is that someone we're supposed to know?

This. In the original commercial, at one point I have no idea what he said.

I only like this one cause its Hank. Other then that I think these Ads are horrible. Hopefully I start to like them once playoffs begin.

"because it started off as a reason to go out on a Wednesday night" from the main commercials makes me cringe every time.

the narration would be ten times more epic if it were done by Morgan Freeman

The Rangers one is pretty good - if nothing else all of those statements are true and point out the teams' best characteristics. The Henrik one is good because, well, Henrik.

I can't believe that they couldn't find a better voice.

Great to see Hank featured, but the campaign sucks.

"Because he's famous in the world's most famous arena" does it for me

Uh.. there are no logos on any of our jerseys, so how can a Ranger "play for the logo on front"?

I have to say these are growing on me. The 2 half times one is beyond awful though. It's like they have to dumb down for the basketball and football fans. Brutal. Also, can they make it more obvious that this is not for anyone but casual fans? "Because it started as a reason to go out on a Wednesday night". Blah!

What else should they have made out of it? "They play for the name on the front, not the name on the back" ???
