Playoff Avatars Poll
 
Alright guys, the main thread about the playoff avatars has given fruit to a bunch of awesome ideas, great job to everyone for coming up with them and to the 'shoopers (:P) for giving us examples for most of them.

Many in that thread suggested we start a poll to decide which theme we'll be going with, to give the guys preparing the avatars time to do them before the playoffs begin.

I looked back through the last few pages of the thread to see which theme came back often. So here they are, please, if you vote for "Other" specify in the thread which theme you want to go with.

Dive for 25

Game of Thrones but not "whining is coming" .... winning maybe?

Nicko999 04-13-2013 01:24 PM

Dive for 25.

jpchabby 04-13-2013 01:24 PM

Hesitating between the Dive for 25 and the Game of Thrones...

Chose Game of Thrones :p Could also be "Diving is coming" if people don't want "whining is coming"...

Face81 04-13-2013 01:25 PM

Dive for 25 looks hilarious ahahah

Captain Wolverine 04-13-2013 01:28 PM

Dive for 25 followed by The Habbits.

peate 04-13-2013 01:35 PM

I like GoT theme a lot but chose Dive because it's funny and has drive hidden in there.

MJG 04-13-2013 01:38 PM

Went with Dive. As much as I like some of the others it's probably the best. It doesn't disclude anyone and has the potential to be classic.

Brainiac 04-13-2013 01:43 PM

What's the story with the Habs this year?

'The Habbits' and 'A New Hope' both summarize very well what happened with the Habs.

Posters from other boards will understand the theme right away.

'Dive for 25' and 'Whining is coming'... nice, but a little convoluted. Are we the divers? The whiners? No! So what are we referring to??

Dive for 25, no contest.

Seb 04-13-2013 01:47 PM

If I could vote, I'd vote Dive for 25

Rscorpio 04-13-2013 01:47 PM

No whining theme:(

I give you the permission. Now, you can.

PsychoticHab 04-13-2013 02:12 PM

I'd definitely like to see "Dive for 25".

Yep 04-13-2013 02:24 PM

Not sure I fully understand the Dive for 25 concept (might be a language thing as I'm a francophone).

Is there more in it than a reference to the Bruins incident?

Visually, what potential variants do you see for the avys, beyond Julien, Chara, Thornton, Marchand or the eventual scuba diver?

And what if one of our player do dive in a tight playoff game or worst, pulls a Ribeiro?

I'm not against it, I'm just not sure I get it.:help:

"Drive for 25" = la course pour la 25e.

"Dive" is just a play on "Drive".

McSorleyStick 04-13-2013 02:45 PM

All those themes suck



We need fresh ideas

Kinda like this :

D ive for 25

rr


(did you see that? That "r" just dived! Embarassing!)

WhiskeySeven 04-13-2013 02:54 PM

Maybe we shouldn't acknowledge the erroneous image that we dive or legitimize the bruins by sporting avatars proclaiming we dive and whine??

Have some pride....

I'm gonna give my koala a Habs Hawaiian tshirt.

SirClintonPortis 04-13-2013 02:54 PM

As mentioned in the other thread, a phoenix would be a great symbol. We were a rotten old carcass last season and we have risen from the ashes indeed.

Brainiac 04-13-2013 02:55 PM

Yeah, the 'Dive for 25' could easily backfire.

Just one dubious dive by a Habs and we'd be forever called divers apologists.

And how do you put a Habs player on an avatar that says 'Dive for 25'?

The avatars should be about the Habs, their story this year etc.

Natey 04-13-2013 02:59 PM

This really should have had examples in the first the post.

i agree, I had to go through 15 pages of the other thread to educate myself enough to vote!

ryanwb 04-13-2013 06:07 PM

I hate the idea of associating ourselves with diving or whining. Where is our proud heritage? Let's not bring ourselves down to their level.

After seeing the work in the other thread, a Star Wars theme/A New Hope would be awesome, and that is definitely my vote.

Bloumeister 04-13-2013 06:10 PM

Can't believe someone voted for #humpthecup :laugh:
