absolutely excellent commercial that one...

About as good as the Michael Mann NFL commercials.

I always liked Nike's with Naslund and Kovalchuk playing off the ice... its cheesy, but pretty cool.

Knee jerk Caps fan Penguin bashing at its best.

Crazy how they actually made the play flow properly, not just random clips.

Some of these posted commercials in this thread are gold, as for the OP's commercial, it's only special if you're a Pens fan.

you see now a a commercial like this is much better, it doesn't come of off as an op Pens homer commercial.(I'm sure a lot of Pens fans would agree that this is a much better general NHL ad then the OPs also.)

Not really hockey ads, just Nike ads... (Most people know them, but I still get a kick out of each one... here's a few, there's more)








Another one I like a lot:

I'm actually tired of this commercial, I liked it the first couple of times. By the end of the year I'll probably despise it. I liked the old Marc Bergevin/Steve McKenna commercials back before the lockout where they complained that each new bobblehead the team released wasn't them.

"Who is it this time? Is it me?"
"No...it's Morozov..."
"Morozov!?"
"Yeah, why's he get one?"
*Bergevin makes the bobblehead nod along*
"'Yes Mario I pass you the puck, yes Mario I go to the net, Yes Mario..."

And of course:

Of the ones posted here, most of them are terrible, some mildly entertaining but still pretty dumb, and then these two are absolutely fantastic




Call me lame, but I actually think most of the good ones are the sponsored ones from Nike and Tim Hortons.

The Naslund-Iginla-Kovalchuk ones were a breath of fresh air I thought, and the Tim Hortons ones are always effective in capturing the mood.

What's that new one with the kid sitting in the stands just staring out at it and then drawing the cup in his window? Again, cheesy, but effective, I thought.

And I love the selection of players they used. They really did do a great job of touching on each generational talent.

Anyone remember the goalie clearing leaves off of his lawn and complaining about Sundin and the Maple Leafs? I always liked that one.

I've always thought this was the greatest hockey commercial I've seen:


and to be fair this was sort of a promo for the all star game. But it was one of the few hockey commercials I've ever seen that evoked some true emotion.

Yeah, watching that again sent shivers down my spine.

The 2 NHL clips ("Live Every Shift" & "Raise the Cup") are also my faves. The other clips are good, but they are using hockey as a vehicle to sell a product be it sports equipment or coffee or hamburgers, etc. The NHL ones are selling their own product and (IMO) have a cachet about them.
