If this doesn't score on the lame o meter nothing will
I never want to see Sergei Fedorov dance again.
Ahh, the memories....
Look at Neely, Oates, and Bourque use their sticks as guitars. That's awful.
I'd take what Fox did with this clip anyday over that insane warrior ad from last season- if I saw that warrior clip one more time I would probably have to get another tv because I was ready to smash the tv if I had to see it again. I guess I'm in the minority but I think the clip is pretty cool myself- it shows some players with personality- especially Federov. I don't think what Fox did with this promo is that bad- reminds me somewhat of the NHL2nite clips that ESPN use to have.
I think I'm scarred for life now, thanks!
Gotta say, John Davidson hasn't aged a whole heck of a lot.
I remember that goal from Sakic , jaw-dropping.
@ Jagr with his mullet with Francis & Robitaille doing that silly move
Oh I now remember how bad Dave Maloney was......
at least FOX was hyping the NHL, and treating with the same big budget production that it was giving the other sports.
watching this i'm almost fooled into thinking that the NHL was/is actually popular in the states, and amongst the big-4 sports.
Wow. I remember '95 like it was yesterday, but then I hear them talk about what players are on what teams and I see those uniforms, and the Nordiques exist, and the Boston Garden with a smaller ice surface and I realize how long ago it was. And Oh my goodness look at Dave Maloney's hair! How big can it get. He sounds exactly the same but looks entirely different.
The sad thing is that it is still better than the NHLs most recent marketing campaign.
OMG...that was great. Fedorov dancing
I actually agree here.
Fox pushed the NHL more than any other place ever did.
I actually have a few OLD NHL on Fox hockey jersies and some pucks, too.
I dont care that its FOX, just watching that clip reminded how amazing hockey was just a decade ago and how Bettman and Co F'd sh*t up so insanely to the point of where hockey is now. Look how all the old barns used to rock, Quebec (a real hockey city going nuts), the old Garden, you can see the old Aud in Buffalo. Just a shame. Hockey can never be like that again. Its just a fact folks.
I completely forgot James Brown did the pregame shows.
Fedorov doing a piruett ..
FOX is doing fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnneee
It's cup time!
When NBC drops the NHL some day, they gotta go back to FOX. FOX probably has something stupid like Stargate SG1 filling up that spot on Saturday. How could you not like those quirky sounds whenever there was a check?
What are the prospects for 2010? That's when the deal will end.
There are rumors that they're going to renew the deal after 2010, but they do infact lose the Winter Olympics after 2010. I think the NHL will follow whatever network has the Winter Olympics, even if that wasnt true in the past.
NBC has the Olympics past 2010. The thing is whether the NHL will take part in the olympics past 2010 (which they won't).
That was like a car wreck, I didn't want to look, and it was painfull to watch, but I just couldn't look away. Seriously, what were they thinking?
Well, for now, they should be announcing a deal soon that keeps the NHL till the 2009-2010 season.
It can, unless Gary Bettman is somehow immortal and VS has an eternal contract with the NHL.
that is so damn funny
I never thought I would see the day that Sergei Fedorov would dance... but then again, he dated Tara Reid so anything can happen, I guess.
Jagr and Robitaille looked so funny...
Did I see Teemu Selanne, too? I would have loved to see him dance.
Pavel Bure looked hot.
Was that Alexander Mogilny who was the captain of the Sabres?
that was jokes!
They suspended his account and deleted all his videos.
Damn, I was subscribed to him, he'd always upload good vids, I hope he re-joins Youtube.
