Playoff Avatar Theme?
 
Since we're in the playoffs already, I figured we should pick a theme so we don't have to rush the design or anything.

Some ideas:
Iron Man (Iron Man 3 comes out May 3rd)
Walking Dead
Game of Thrones
Mad Men
Django Unchained
Argo
Zero Dark Thirty
Skyfall

Django

Or

Mad Men

Someone suggested Lincoln a few weeks ago, has potential if done correctly.

Also, a lot of people on the main boards whine about how the Hawks benefit from controversial calls all the time. Just brainstorming.

I don't know that it has to be something current but I always liked how the Canucks fans call the Hawks "Team Terminator". I think something like that with the half face, half terminator face for each guy would be cool. Obviously you could do more with it too.

If we win the Presidents' Trophy, we could do something like a Mount Rushmore of Hawks players or have different presidents as our avatars.

I feel like there's some decent risk there.

I just like the idea of having Bowman being Christoph Waltz' character in Django and saying, "I'm just here to make a transaction." :laugh:

All I know is we need to get back to 09-10 and 10-11 levels. Future cap casualty and Win it for minny were classic.

That was I. If they win the Prez it'd be too perfect.

I like it, but I like having the same theme, not the same avatar.

Lincoln could be an included president.

MurrayBannerman 04-08-2013 02:37 PM

I'd be up for a presidential theme. It'd allow me to keep my normal avy, just with one of those funny George Washington wigs haha

We should put Johnny Oduya's hair on all the presidents.

Or we put Abe Lincoln hats on all the players and say something like "Presidents' Trophy Winners," followed by "Win It for Lincoln," and lastly followed by the player's headshot with a hat added on and his last name below.

Cullksinikers 04-08-2013 02:45 PM

You can also add an epic beard. It is the playoffs.

The point would be to kind of base it off the movie. Not everyone would need to be Lincoln.

For example, and I haven't seen the film, but a quick wiki shows that one of them is Attorney General James Speed. Stalberg much?

Opponents would have to be Vampires.

How about a central theme of peaking too early, with each individual avatar pointing out a minor flaw in either team play or a specific player?

Faceoff theme, either the movie or just a general theme. Maybe put their FO% plus their win loss record on them and a quip.

Like:
Frolik
12-22
37.1%
Why are you even in the NHL?

I think that would become a running joke for everyone else once we give up a key goal off a defensive zone draw. That's like Russian roulette.

No Fun Shogun 04-08-2013 04:20 PM

I say either Lincoln or the faceoff dot.

Cullksinikers 04-08-2013 04:21 PM

Something I did on PowerPoint since I'm bored:

If we win the President's, stick Lincolnesque hats and beards on each of the players. That would be utterly fantastic.

For example, Q:

Coach Q
(Crossed Out)
Millard Fillmore?
Don't think so.
653-387-161

Millard Fillmore being the worst president in history, etc.
