HAHAHAHAHAHA. That is perfect. Yeah, I think we can safely say the NHL Guardian Project was the worst marketing scheme from the NHL in a good while, lol.

Poor birdie got sucked into a jet engine.

This had my attention in the beginning. I still would have liked a comic out of it. A NHL comic would have been badass.

But yeah the way they executed this was piss-poor. All that hype...and for nothing.


Didn't they make short comics for each "Guardian"? I think the Devil one had him saving a school bus full of kids or something.

Wait, found it before I even hit "Post".

should've been less comic book-ish and more cartoon (Gendy Tartakovsky style) oriented. I've got kids, and I'm sure they'd love NHL meets Super Hero Squad...

I feel like a big opportunity was missed not giving the villain the head of Gary Bettman. Now that would be truly terrifying.
