A team of Eric Staal and Erik Cole alone could beat the Habs. Win some games against the guy and try again.

Replace "talking" with "Dekeing goalies out of their jocks"

Why doesn't the NHL market the Staals like they do the Mannings?

One brother plays in the South. You know, a HUGE hockey market. People say, 'What team does he play for?'

Another brother plays not 2nd fiddle, but 3rd fiddle to 2 of the best players in the game.

The next brother plays in New York, butttt is a shut-down Dman who isn't very flashy.

The last brother hasn't cracked Pro hockey yet, so he's out.

And the Mannings are MVPs of americans favorite game.

Get it?

While this does sound entertaining, I think JRuutu would be perfection.

I always had hoped that

1) All the Staal brothers (or all but one) would win the Stanley Cup)

2) They would all be on the SAME all-star team together (yeah... not gonna happen)

3) all sign with the same team just for kicks.

The Staal's are on teams with huge potential market cap. Wouldn't be a bad idea.

I think it would be a good idea.

Can you think of a good comercial for them to put on? Will a funny commercial get non-hockey fans intrested? Would a serious, intense hard hitting highlight reel get non-hockey fans intrested? Would an interview of a guy talking about how he went to one game and now he wont stop going get non-hockey fans intrested? Will 3 brothers in the NHL get non-hockey fans intrested?

Ha, I tried to get them all in NHL09 once. I couldn't get eric away from Carolina. That would be awesome though. Talk about Locker room chemistry.

Bingo.

The NHL can't just PUT the Staals in commercials other then NHL related commercials, which they actually have with a NHL Network commercial. Corporations have to be interested in using them as the face of their ads. And no one is interested in doing that.

Only one of them is exceptionally talented though, and he plays in the smallest market amongst the three.

Actually, whenever that question's been brought up, the brothers always seem uncomfortable with the idea. At least, Eric and Jordan have been. Haven't seen anything with Marc.

Staal is spelled differently than Crosby. That = no marketing.

Even if Jordan was more talented, he wouldn't get much marketing with Sid there.

I don't understand how people can say that Marc has no talent? I guess defensive defense men have no place in this game?

Didn't read the whole thread, but I'm sick of people blaming the NHL using examples like this.

When the Manning brothers are in every other commercial, it's not NFL marketing at work. The Mannings are in commercials because they are already publically recognizable, and corporations want them to be spokesmen, and they sign endorsement deals. It has nothing to do with NFL marketing. It's what corporations want for their advertising.

Likewise, the NHL's marketing department can't do a damn thing to make the Staal brothers (or Crosby, or anyone else) appear in TV commercials for Coca-Cola or Toyota, if those companies don't actually want those players as spokesmen. And the won't want them as spokesmen unless they are widely recognizable to begin with.
