Playoff avatars
 
Guys.

This board needs to reignite its avatar game.

Remember when we used to have great, identifying, unifying avatars? I think it's time to do that again, especially with the good feelings surrounding the team now that Budaj isn't our starter and we have a real fourth line and two 30+ goal scorers (we'll not mention the defence in this thread, deal?).

I suggest we come up with avatars for the playoff push/playoffs.

I don't have time to come up with suggestions or templates right this minute, but I thought I'd at least get the conversation started. I, or one of the board's true photoshop wizards (MiG, Jee, RoyMunson, Morrocan etc) can step up to the plate in terms of designing them.

Nice jynx thread but I think our idea should have something to do with Therrien. Maybe Photoshop Bergevin's face on this guy's. https://i.imgflip.com/26am.jpg

That Habs Fan 03-19-2014 07:58 AM

the Rangers (I think it was them) already used that guy.

this isn't a jinx thread, it's for the push as well as the actual playoffs.

also, we're making the god damn playoffs.

I actually really, really like the "Vote for" idea, especially with how contentious Quebec politics is right now.

Might be too much for this board, but I love it. Would make for interesting design possibilities too since political signs/propaganda are often quite visually engaging.

We're not there yet.

edit: But I'm liking pine's idea.

That Habs Fan 03-19-2014 09:10 AM

yeah, Pine's idea is definitely a winner.

and for those who are worried we're going to get bumped by three of tampa, toronto, columbus, detroit, and washington...consider this a 'playoff drive' avatar as well as a playoff avatar. also, have some faith in your team ;)

Analyzer* 03-19-2014 09:43 AM

Need a playoff avatar idea ?

Vote for Pine.

Need someone to photoshop it ?

Don't vote for Analyzer.

FrontierPsyCHiatrist* 03-19-2014 09:53 AM

My vote goes to Pine's idea until somebody does better!

Le Tricolore 03-19-2014 09:55 AM

South Park: The Stick Of Truth avatars.

There's even a hockey stick item you can use in the game. Have someone talented enough Photoshop Habs' jerseys on the characters

JPGoHabsGo 03-19-2014 10:19 AM

I like it


we could also do something like

Photo of bouillon: plays 25 mins a game
Photo of Gorges: LETS GO RED

something like that, but funnier.

EmelinHipCheck 03-19-2014 10:31 AM

How about a #character theme ?

Brainiac 03-19-2014 10:32 AM

'Vote for...' sounds good! What's our party? Habs party? :laugh:

And to those saying wwwwaaaaaaa JINX wwwaaaaaaaaaa: get real. Habs will be in the playoffs.

Le Tricolore 03-19-2014 10:43 AM

Every year we do the same thing. It's always some self deprecating, sarcastic theme. Why not go with something a little more creative?

(that goes for nearly all suggestions that aren't pine's).

Well it always depends on where we go with this. It could definitely have a optimist vibe to it: Will never give up, Vote For Gally, Will Block Everything, Vote for Gorges, Will be our best player, Vote for Price, Will Shutdown other team's stars, Vote for Plekanec, Will be clutch, vote for Briere, etc.

Could do a mixture. Though, I'm not sure of the size limit for an avy.

Will play 30 minutes for free.

Let's go Red!

Votez pour Bouillon

Gotta have both and I don't even know if I did the second part right.

:shakehead

McSorleyStick 03-19-2014 11:58 AM

Oh man I still remember the 2010 playoff theme


"Expect the unexpected"

It was so foreshadeowing, as we didn't expect that great run.


Best playoff avatar theme ever
