Canucks 2012-13 Regular Season Avatars
 
Hey y'all,

So even though its a shortened season, I'm still willing to make us a new shiny set of Canucks avatars to use until playoffs.

But here's the question: what theme do we go with?

Do we revamp "Embrace the Hate"? Or do we go fresh and in a new direction? LEND ME YOUR IDEAS CANUCKS FANS I WILL CREATE THEM.

Taelin 01-23-2013 03:53 PM

Thanks for doing this again!

Maybe somewhere along the lines of "window closing" or "over the hill"?

Petey Cee 01-23-2013 03:53 PM

No thanks

Nuckles 01-23-2013 03:55 PM

I'd rather hold off until the playoffs. Season is too short IMO.

Pshhh, you're no fun. Taking away my entertainment!

AndyPipkin 01-23-2013 03:57 PM

Sweet, you make awesome avatar's TPM.

I'll have to mull this over, my last theme was so successful :laugh:

jimmythescot 01-23-2013 03:58 PM

Aren't the playoffs around the same length as the season this year? And that's if you get to the final.

I gotta agree. I also think having Regular Season ones kind of takes away from the playoff avatars specialness. (:laugh:)

And by that I mean the banding together for the battle that is the post season.


but thats just me.....

FINE!
I have an idea for something, but it might be better suited for next season when a lot of our younger guys get a shot at making the team (due to cap reasons).

Something based around exaggerations of how good our prospects are.
Superstar prospects theme?

Corrado = Bobby Orr/Nicklas Lidstrom
Schroeder = Martin St. Louis
Eddie Lack = Henrik Lundqvist
etc...

That's quite clever.

^ I love that. And it'll piss people off.

Funny avatars > serious avatars

But like I said, it would probably be better to hold off on using that idea until next season when we cant afford to re-sign some UFAs and have to use rookies (Jensen, Lack, etc).

I still think it would work this year.

It'd be like a giant FU to Leafs fans who predict the Stardom of any prospect before they even play a game.

And you know how much we love to piss off the Leafs' fans.

AndyPipkin 01-23-2013 04:14 PM

^ It's almost more funny when the majority of them aren't even playing.

I have to agree with that. Can we agree on a slogan for execution and who each prospect will be?

Kassian = Bertuzzi
Jensen = ??
Schroeder = MSL
Corrado = Bobby Orr
Connauton = ???
Lack = Henrik Lundqvist
Cannata = Roy? Hasek? Brodeur?
Gaunce = Jordan Staal?
Tanev = ??
Rodin = ??

Should we poke fun and make Hodgson something like Stefan or Daigle or something? Or is that too far?

We have to take it to the extreme.

Kassian = Cam Neely
Lack = Hasek
Cannata = Roy
Corrado = Bobby Orr
Tanev = Lidstrom

I seem to remember that we weren't allowed to put other team's players in our avatars.

Agreed x2. Extreme to the max.

Reverend Mayhem 01-23-2013 04:25 PM

I was thinking everyone seems to think we are "over the hill". So maybe we could compare our players now to players from our past.

Luongo - Kirk McLean
Schneider - Corey Hirsch
Bieksa - Harold Snepsts
Garrison - Garth Butcher
Ballard - Dana Murzyn
Burrows - Dennis Ververgaert
Kesler - Dan Woodley
Kassian - Jim Sandlak

and so on and so forth

Taelin 01-23-2013 04:25 PM

Schroeder = Gretzky
Sweatt = Bure
