Ideas for this year's 2012 playoffs avatars
 
Well. It's that time of year where we start thinking of what kind of avatars we should support for the upcoming Playoffs. Now, were not quite there yet. But, within the next 10-12 games it should be impossible for the number nine team to catch up. So, think about it and suggest something if you have ideas.

And, we need a creative soul to make these! Whatever idea we come to conclusion with.

For some inspiration, here are the former seasons choices:

2007/2008 - It never gets old

Idea thread 2008

2008/2009 - Winning Elements

2009/2010 - No Red Wings, No Playoffs

Old idea thread for 2009-2010

2010/2011 - Dos Decades


So, suggestions?


My suggestion at this time is about age(because everyone else is still saying were to old) and the streak and a bit retro since it's Motown. Make it like with a music-themed slang.
With two images for the catchphrase, the first one with some crazy photo of the player and the second with some serious and one third for 2012 Playoffs or "Because were streaky" or something.

Main Theme:
21 - Young enough for ya?
21 - Old enough for ya?

Maybe with some extras a little bit of the main theme like: "21 - long enough for ya? No, I'll take 23."

12 in '12 to boring for ya? :laugh:
I'm terribly uncreative (word?), at least at the moment, but considering what has been created in the past few years it is going to be good regardless.

I like the idea of including Motown. Maybe something along the lines of combining a player with a Motown act, or at least a musician from Detroit?

Pavel/Michael Jackson - Moves like Pavel.
Lidstrom/Seger - Some things never get old.

Just some off the top of my head, I'm sure it can be improved.

Something having to do with the streak or the dominance at home would be great too. I like where OP is going.

Please don't compare Lidstrom to Seger.

I can't stand Seger. :naughty:

Haha I thought maybe comparing Pavel to MJ would be worse. Like I said just spitballing.

Sidenote: Seger's a classic!!! :yo:

Red Wings playoff streak: Old enough to drink.

Xvash2 02-27-2012 08:55 PM

Done in 2 rounds or your money back.

Epsilon 02-27-2012 09:03 PM

Whatever they end up being, I want a Ken Holland avatar.

This has my vote.

It also works for the home win record!

Maybe something with Michigan State IDs?

I like this.

JmanWingsFan 02-27-2012 09:23 PM

I know it's a rip off, but I like a "history was made" kind of theme....

One Bourbon, One Scotch, Four Cups

Sitcom parodies. Dibs on "Everybody Hates Quincey."

WingedWheel1987 02-27-2012 09:35 PM

Something about how awful we think the Wings are?

FinRuutu 02-27-2012 09:40 PM

Because of the 21 years of playoffs and being a contender Red Wings is hated, envied and respected.

Three Sins of Red Wings?

silkyjohnson50 02-27-2012 09:42 PM

Yeah something along the lines of:

Holland has run this team into the ground

or

Holland is overrated

or

Holland or Howson?

:yo::handclap:

My vote has been cast. Me likey.

Frozen Fiend 02-27-2012 10:13 PM

Oooo some good ideas... I like the Drinks one (each player is his own drink lol), the 12 in 12, and the Holland/Howson!

This might be hard year to decide.

BlakKy 02-27-2012 10:33 PM

21 years of playoffs

*Player having a drink from the cup/a beer/photos from the Red Wings wine event stuff*

"Old enough to drink."

^^ Three slides like that could be effective.

Bench 02-27-2012 10:40 PM

Another idea that came to me:

The Walking Red

Quick mock

Horror parody? Play on Wings ability to defy age? Lidstrom as an undead unstoppable force? :laugh:

Marky9er 02-27-2012 10:51 PM

Last year someone suggested "hockeytown survival rules"; playing off the Zombieland survival rules....I thought it was a great idea.

"It's the Third Period in Detroit"
 
Maybe a take-off of the Chrysler Super Bowl ad, only "It's the Third Period in Detroit". Each player would be a different car. For example:

Datsyuk - Corvette - "moves as good as he looks"
Homer - Volvo - "solid and dependable in front of the net"
Franzen - 1969 LTD - "hard to get started":sarcasm:
Bert - Hummer - "runs right over you"

I really like the Imported from Detroit logo as well, maybe it could be adapted?

MissNHL 02-27-2012 11:38 PM

Whatever is chosen, I want a Helm one, lol.
