NHL All-Star Campaigns You Probably Won't See

It's that time of year again when teams and players combine to make jerky All-Star Game campaigns in which they push for your vote to get them into the NHL All-Star Game. They range from hilarious attack ads to this recent video featuring Carey Price. The description of the video reads: "Carey Price draws inspiration from Jean Dujardin's classic French flick Brice de Nice for his 2012 All-Star campaign.", but we still have no idea what is going on.


We anticipate more of these campaigns from around the NHL, and look forward to some gems, but we have some ideas of our own for those players looking for an extra push to get into the Fantasy Draft:
  • Dany Heatley cruising around in a boat on his lake discussing how much of an "All-Star" he is.
  • Rick Nash skating around on the ice doing tricks before stopping in front of the camera and saying "Somebody from Columbus has to go right?"
  • Kris Versteeg rapping to Vanilla Ice's - "Ice, Ice, Baby"
  • Zdeno Chara reaching for things on the top shelf at the grocery store for an elderly woman who is wearing a Montreal Canadiens jersey
  • A video of Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle playing ministicks in Ryan Smyth's basement who comes down with bowls of Kraft Dinner for the boys
  • Ryan Kesler doing sit-ups in slow motion. Definitely going for the female vote
  • Shea Weber taking slapshots at a giant voting card and putting holes through all the Preds players names on the ballot
  • Tim Thomas robbing kids in a game of road hockey with Tuukka Rask sitting on the curb waiting to play
  • Phil Kessel sitting alone in a room reading his stats since the last All-Star Game before staring into the camera and saying "Fuck You Ovie"
  • Roberto Luongo opening and closing the bench door before saying "I can do this for two periods."
  • Ilya Bryzgalov reading a passage from "Into The Wild"
  • Mike Richards and Jeff Carter bombed at a club yelling over the music begging you to reunite them in Ottawa for one game. 
  • Jeff Skinner re-enacting Kenny Wu's goal from D2: The Mighty Ducks

  1. Jokes... Wish I knew what Price was saying, but I liked the swagger walk he had at the beginning.
