    Interesting to see two different sports working together like this. With the popularity of NASCAR in the south, maybe the NHL can gain like three or four fans from this. Interesting idea, glad to see the NHL and NHLPA are at least giving it an effort to market themselves.

    Eh, kind of weak. Not many people are into Le Mans racing.

    As far as brand Marketing, the previous NHLPA merchandise angle was much stronger than this sponsor attempt. Remember its not the NHL is only the NHLPA.

    I hope John Graham(e) can drive better in his upcoming race than he played goalie in 2005-06.

    I somehow think that they did this once before a handful of years ago.

    I remember a NASCAR Craftsman Truck entry sponsored by the Florida Panthers in the late 1990s.

    Just to point this out, the series that the car is in isn't NASCAR, its the American Le Mans Series. Much more entertaining racing imo than the toilet bowl racing NASCAR spews out.

    I'm a huge fan of the ALMS, but let's face it. This series has 0.1% of the popularity let alone familiarity of NASCAR.

    Let's face it, the most that the NHLPA will get out of this is a picture of a 911 GT3 RSR with their logo on it for the yearly glossy calendar that they send out.

    Agree.

    I know a lot of NHL fans, but none of them are really NHLPA fans.

    Who cares? Why am I even responding to this?

    Too bad it isn't in NASCAR. It would be fun watching my driver Kevin Harvick beat on the car till it hits the wall. ;)
