Sunday was a big night for Kevin Bieksa. He scored 2 goals – including the eventual game-winner – and added an assist. On Monday, the NHL made him the first Canucks player to be featured in its “History Will Be Made” ad campaign.

    Can someone explain the “What if Bieksa stayed at home” to me? I don’t get it.

    It means he’s not a ‘stay-at-home’ defenseman.

    It’s from the label “stay-at-home defenseman”, used to describe D who don’t focus on scoring. Bieksa hasn’t really been a stay-at-home type in his career, but had a tough year and only scored three goals in the regular season…then scored two in that one playoff game.

    These promos sure have been a success for the NHL — even the amount of parody ads that have sprung up seem to indicate that people love ‘em.

    Didn’t the Sedin Twins have a “History will be made” ad?

    I’m not a huge Bieksa fan but I’m glad he had a good game on Sunday.

    I’m happy those promos are running though, it’s great to see some of our guys in them.

    BTW, I could not be more excited about tonight. The Canucks play good as underdogs and it’s going to be a great game.

    I believe those Sedin ones are not official NHL ads, but fan made. This Bieksa one was from NHL

    They should make one with the caption: “What if Bieksa didn’t shit the bed?”

    I saw this commecial after the Hawks stomped on the Canucks to finish the series. I think the NHL is saying the Hawks would have won the series in 4 or 5 without Bieksa. Hope Bieksa received a copy of it to remember losing to the eventual 2010 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. History will be made!
