Bragging about beating the Laffs?  Isn't that kind of like calling a re-tard stupid?  It's just not nice.

What a bucket of jingo-ass jive. All it needed was a cartoon character selling insurance to smiling idiots on speed.

Careful now Nashville. You're going to get Old Lesbian Wayne Gretzky in front of the Canadian media tearfully telling everyone that it's "Our Game".

And we don't want that.

That's cute Nashville.  By the way, you're still out of a playoff spot and the math is not on your side if you don't get in by the end of the week.

Come on, Canada is in national mourning over the NHL TV deal.

Keep it classy, rednecks.

It's too bad the guy who thought of this is so ignorant that he failed to notice that all but one of their defensemen and goalies are Canadian or Europeans. They can't win a game without a major contribution from non-Americans.

I'm equally confused by "Seth Jones will be leading Team America into the Olympics".  If anybody is going to be doing that it's Jonathan Quick or Ryan Miller.

That was tasteless, crude, and offensive.

It's barely past quarter season, why would they have to be in by the end of the week?

No one's going to say it?  OK, I'll say it:  It was tongue-in-cheek and I liked it.

If you ever watched John Green's "Crash Course" US History series, it felt like a minute-long "Libertage."

Questionable taste?  Sure, particularly having the Iwo Jima soldiers in the background.  But hockey fights are of questionable taste, too.  If anything, it's mocking America as much as it's touting it.

Whatever.  I thought it was funny.

I made it about 6 seconds before the music made me angry, so I'll just assume it was truly terrible. I also realized I don't care for the Preds at all unless Rinne is playing.

Is that really an official team video?

Am I the only one who thinks Torrey Krug should get a roster spot?

No, no you're not.

Again, the math is not on their side.  The 25 game mark is were the top teams start to pull away from the rest.  By weeks end 50 of the 164 points available in a season will have been decided, that's nearly a third.  At the moment they are 6 points out and on pace to finish with as many as 15 fewer points than 8th place Phoenix.  Look at either Conference, once you get down past the 6 seed the points start to drop significantly and it's very difficult to make those up later in the season.

Now does this mean Nashville is finished?  No, but it does mean they are going to have an uphill battle the rest of the season just to qualify for a lower seed.  Remember it's not just winning, other teams have to lose and with three point games wins don't always gain you as much ground and losses cost opponents less.

I guess.  I'm glad my team hasn't hit this mark yet.  Hell neither has STL and they're the best team in the league at this point.

Do you guys have zero sense of humor? I mean, regardless if you thought it was funny, that was obviously its intent. Pure schlock.

I watched it with the volume down and replaced my funny bone. Much better, I get it now.

I assumed they were trying to market the team to the rural populace or something.

Hey, quit making sense.

Also, didn't the US kill off most of their bald eagles and have to get given some by Canada?

We don't need your socialist eagles...this is MURICA!!!1!

Our eagles drink baby seal blood as an aphrodisiac before launching loads of eagle jizz like sidewinder missiles heading to a hut of brown people.

And with a deafening WHOOSH, the self-parody goes flying over the collective head of the internet. I thought it was pretty funny, but then again, I usually understand when something is meant to be a joke. Also, put me down for the KRUG FOR TEAM USA t-shirt. Kid's been playing out of his mind since the playoffs last season.

Shea Weber and Pekke Rinne are the faces of that franchise so... nah

Nashville is my West-Team, and while they do have lots of Americans, aside from Seth, they really don't have anyone of quality.

Why I'm okay with this.
