NHL Network Stanley Cup commercial

Postby Sigwolf on Mon May 15, 2017 10:54 pm

I could not have imagined a commercial with so many hockey legends being annoying, but the NHL Network's "why are these guys spelling their name" commercial is horrible. I get what they are poorly attempting to do, but to jump cut after a random number of letters in said players name just leaves the whole thing a disjointed mess. Very representative of NHL playoff officiating. I guess I get it now... just don't like it. :fist:

lol yeah it's definitely weird. They should have the players just spell their names out entirely I guess. I think Esposito says "ito"lol ok.

Definitely strange but that's the NHL.

And amazingly it's controversial, as Canadians and Americans apparently pronounce their "Z"s differently, and Wayne used the Americanized version.
