His play lately has definitely started to make up for those awful Audi ads.

If you don't love the way Sam Bennett plays hockey, you don't get hockey.

Nothing can make up for those simpleton spots, short of Sam winning Rookie of the Year honours.

Whoever encouraged him to do those (greedy agent?) should be fired. Very bad advice. Of course, Sam is mostly to blame for agreeing to do them. I'm sure he gets lots of ribbing from the boys.

My only disappointment concerning our highest draft pick ever.

Decent ads with hockey players are rare. There was an almost incomprehensible Datsyuk ad for a local car company (in his defence, he couldn't speak English). Crosby's were boring. Hudler's "happy lady happy life" = terrible. Messier and McDavid = no good (of course).

Even Peter Maher's green drop ads were bad.

Good ones? Iginla's "no fingers" was amusing and the ATB/green man/Gio ad was good (but he didn't have to talk). Messier and the Pylons = OK.

Even huge corporations like Bauer, Rogers or Mastercard have some pretty terrible hockey player commercials. Never mind a local business putting one together.

The only real decent ones are where the players don't talk.

Some of Gio's ATB ads were ok. None were embarrassingly awful a la Sam I Am.

Sam's is maybe the worst one I've ever heard.

"I get rowdy". Just to rhyme with Audi. Good thing Audi doesn't make a truck.

The ATB Halloween ones this year were pretty good.




I haven't heard the Bennett one. I guess that's one advantage of never listening to the radio.

Looking at the 2014 draft class I don't think I would trade Bennett for any of the other picks including Ekblad. He just plays such an entertaining brand of hockey and will be a player we will be proud is a Flame when he hits his prime.

Hitting with Monahan and Bennett with our top 10 picks and then getting so lucky to have Gaudreau turn into what he is makes me so excited to watch this team in 3-4 years when those guys are all hitting their prime

I still prefer the cab driver one. I also liked the punk on Roller blades one who's running over random people aND than gets plastered by Sundin.

This has always been my favourite hockey related commercial. Hilarious!

I like the one where they meet on a blind date wearing rivalry uniforms and just move on.
