    This is certainly odd but I guess there isn't much bad blood between Disney and the NHL after all.

    Any deal is a good one but this certainly seems like it came out of left field. What the heck is Phineas and Ferb anyways? :laugh:

    Phin and Ferb is a HUGE cartoon among the pre-teen set (9-12 of age)

    Wow, anyone's favorite team can now TRULY become a Mickey Mouse organization! ;) I can just SEE the future JPG's of Mickey characters wearing a team jersey when that organization is going through tough times! ;)

    Phineas and Ferb is actually pretty funny and watchable. I can dig them cross-marketing with hockey.

    Or old enough.

    I'm the parent of a 7 year old and I'm not ashamed to admit that Phineas and Ferb is ****ing hilarious. It beats the snot out of any sitcom on TV right now.

    I was listening to a radio interview of Brian Jennings and he said that they have signed lots of new agreements with new partners for the upcoming season. Particularily for clothing lines and such.

    Personally, I can't wait to see what new products they have online. The league is finally realizing(probably due to Collins) that fans of any sport want things that are new and exciting. Can't say it's ever been like this in the past.

    Yup. As a dad of a 5 & 8 year old - Phineas and Ferb is one of the few kids shows that is actually entertaining for adults - along with Fairly Odd Parents and, of course, SpongeBob.

    As a 42 yr old with children ages 8, 6, 2 and 2, I can say that Phineas and Ferb is an excellent show not only for children, but for adults as well. It has a lot of humor that really only adults will understand. I haven't met any adults yet that don't actually think the show is hilarious.

    Will refrain from Cory Perry/Perry the Platypus jokes ;)

    Come on, KDB, surely you can photoshop that jersey onto a platypus? ;)

    I got into those back when my little brother started watching them. Perfect examples of kids shows that adults can watch and enjoy. I've never heard of Phineas and Ferb, though.

    And for perfect synergy, they can rename the frachise the Duck-Billed Platypuses. After all, it wouldn't be the first time that franchise took a cue from Disney in naming the team.

    So how much money does this make for each NHL team?

    I guess this means ESPN has no choice but to become bit more NHL friendly.
