    I just saw the first one to date, but I can't stop laughing when the ref goes in the penalty box and beat down the Trashers' player.

    trust me, they look even better in person :D (at least if it's the Storm Squad you're refering to)

    but yeah, Canes marketing seems to be very "hit or miss", nothing that is just.... there. Their "This is hockey" campaign a couple years ago bombed mostly because of how the team performed and let to all kinds of obvious sarcastic quips from the fanbase. However their "You'll Know When You Go" campaign was a huge success in the area, along with a solid team I'd say that was a big thing that attracted a lot of the "casual Caniacs" to the team. It looks like this years adds are going to pay off just as well and personally I think they're even better then the "You'll Know When You Go" campaign ones... of course having a team that's won 9 out of the last 10 is enough advertising to get attendance up itself when the local media accually starts paying attention.

    Rangers Ads "Bobby Granger"

    I think these ads, notably the Jagr translation, Max and Kaspar, and Nieminen ads are particularly good as well.

    That really didn't happen. During the montage when an opposing player is put into the box, they'll usually show someone in that opposing team's uniform getting his butt kicked by a "ref," getting attacked by puppets, or some other similarly humorous thing.
