Nail Yakupov Amazing Snipe

CALGARY, CANADA - JANUARY 5:  Mikhail Grigoren...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeAnother reason why although the Fail for Mikhail campaign (Mikhail Grigorenko) has gained some steam, Fail for Nail is still the predominant theme for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Nail Yakupov is the top prospect for this year's draft to take place in Pittsburgh in June.

He displays yet again that all to rare game-breaking and dynamic offensive ability.

Evgeny Kuznetsov Евгений Кузнецов #92 highlight video

English: Evgeny Kuznetsov accepts his player o...Image via Wikipedia
Highlight video on one of hockey's top prospects - Evgeny (Yevgeni) Kuznetsov. The Washington Capitals have themselves perhaps the most talented player outside the NHL. He starred at this year's World Juniors in Calgary, AB and is giving goalies nightmares in the KHL this season.

I anointed him the "Hockey Surgeon" when highlighting him in a profile during the World Juniors, base on his uncanny ability to dissect opposing defenders.

He exhibits tremendous puck poise, dangling always with a purpose - the usual end result with the puck in the back of the net. He looked great on a line with Nikita Gusev - the Hockey Artist - Russia's Picasso on Ice.

Flash Fans: 2012 Budweiser Official Big Game Commercial

Super Bowl XLVIImage via Wikipedia

From Budweiser:

Just a few weeks ago, Budweiser made the dreams of two unsuspecting beer league hockey teams come true by giving them the thrill of playing just like professionals.

On December 21st 2011, Les Amigos and The Toronto Generals were ready to play their weekly hockey game when Budweiser transformed a regularly scheduled match into an epic high-energy spectacle complete with screaming fans, play-by-play announcers, and even a Budweiser-branded Zamboni! 
The catch? This epic moment was captured on film and will be featured as Budweiser’s Canadian Super Bowl XLVI commercial .

We are pleased to share with you, these awe inspiring 2 minutes that turned the childhood dreams of 30 men into full blown reality. Re-live the nostalgia alongside Canadians across the country this Super Bowl Sunday, when this ad airs nationally on February 5th.
