Interesting promotional strategy leading up to the much hyped January 25th outdoor game. A lot of ads disguised as reporting. First came word tickets will go on sale November 19th. Then yesterday KingsVision posted this video of… Corey Perry? The Ducks? On KINGSVision Really?!?!
Then came these two articles from NHL.com…
Note the word ‘eager’ in both stories.
Then again this afternoon another reminder of tickets going on sale:
However, I’m not so sure the players are as eager as the NHL is in promoting the game.
Here’s the Kings/Ducks Vision video of Corey Perry if you can stomach it…
He sounds as eager as someone about to be deposed.
And we can’t forget last week when asked about the game, Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin candidly replied, “I haven’t even thought about it. I don’t even know when it is,” then quickly added, “but it will be awesome.”
I hear ya Jake! It’s still 2 1/2 months away. Admittedly though, I do think it will be truly awesome and I doubt much promotion will be needed to sell a whole lot of tickets for such a special event. Go Dodgers! Um, I mean Kings!
Update: NHL.com is relentless. Here’s yet another piece posted on 11/16. This time, the headline keyword is “intrigued.”
