I know this is a huge game for points but I despise the Laffs more than any team for many many years.  Please don’t lose to this mess of an organization!!!  Go Red Wings

Morgan Campbell of the Toronto Star,

Instead, the rinkboard ads written in Chinese are aimed at the roughly 300,000 Chinese households expected to tune into Saturday’s game on CCTV5. Ten sponsors will participate in the cultural exchange, with their signs offering varied messages, from simple greetings to all-out ads.

MasterCard’s ad features the company’s logo alongside the message “Hello, China,” while Purolator’s board hails the company as the “Canadian Express Pioneer.”

Meanwhile, Hero Certified Burgers’ sign declares the company will “Really love Chinese ice hockey fans.”

On one level, the ads are a goodwill gesture designed to mark the end of the first year of the NHL’s relationship with China’s national broadcaster. Saturday’s game is the last of 12 Leafs games on CCTV’s regular season schedule, and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment says Leafs broadcasts in China reach as many households as a regional broadcast of a Leafs game in Canada does.

Are you laughing because:

1. There’s a lot of people in China?, or
2. That people in China watch a hockey game on TV?, or
3. Because you didn’t understand the sentence you quoted and you mistakenly think that it implied few people in the GTA watches the Leafs?, or
4. You think the word, “Chinese,” is funny?, or
5. You’re drunk and you thought this was a LOTR blog?

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
