I like the 60 Minutes idea.
I think I'd want a Carter picture with a "60 Minutes...then I go to the beach" slogan.

Well I'm happy everyone loves the 60 minutes idea. I brought it up in the Photoshop thread, because of obvious reasons ;p

I'd support the "It is what it is" -idea. If it's much like the last year's "What can you do?" theme, which was awesome.

"Selfish captain? -It is what it is"
"Rookie goalie?" -It is what it is"
etc

I am on board with the 60 Minutes themed playoff avatars.

Most of the ones that I have seen thus far have been fairly negative, so I have thought of some positive ones (most of them are not witty):

Laviolette: "60 Minutes. To pound pound pound the body"
Richards: "60 Minutes. To lead"
Versteeg: "60 Minutes. To utilize"
Carcillo: "60 Minutes. To set the tempo"
Briere: "60 Minutes. All on the Power Play?"
Hartnell: "60 Minutes. To be a net presence"
Leino: "60 Minutes. To show patience"
Giroux: "60 Minutes. To be a playmaker"
Carrter: "60 Minutes. To Snipe"
JVR: "60 Minutes. To be a Power Forward."
Powe: "60 Minutes. Powe! Powe!"
Betts: "60 Minutes. All on the Penalty Kill?"
Shelley: "60 Minutes. To Enforce."
Nodl: "60 Minutes. To grind"

Pronger: "60 Minutes. To dominate"
Meszaros: "60 Minutes. To take a slapshot."
Timonen: "60 Minutes. To be the best."

I don't mind the positive ones, but I think the self-deprecating ones are way more amusing. That's all I try for with playoff avatars because, worst case scenario, I get to laugh at it.

Not as fond of this 60 minutes idea as what can you do? from last year.

Could be a funny idea to wrap around a "Can't Seal the Deal" comment made after the Atlanta debacle, relates to the 60 minutes idea... would be hilarious for a certain number of players IMO.

you edited one of my comments and suggested it to be the slogan, I like the "Cant Seal the Deal." Or maybe something like "Finish the Job."

Yea, I totally understand with the self-depreciating ones, especially since only a few of the positive ones are good enough to be actually used. Last year I had a Gagne one with the "Score Clutch Goals, What Can you Do?", so I don't really like the negativity because I feel that this team would be massively underachieving to not at least get to the Conference Finals.

In this thread?

or a pervious one? I can't remember I tend to post on here after too many drinks, and with the way the flyers have played lately typically a few extra drinks ontop of that, then the next morning hope I didn't run my mouth about something i'd regret ...

i'll have to root through my post history to find it though

Ah, but if you play a strong 60 - chances are you won't need extra time.

Understandable -- but ya can't repeat it, right? You could always incorporate it somehow.

nah it after the atlanta game, i posted "blowing leads is what they do" and you switched the e in leads with an o and said it should be the playoff slogan. dont think it would be appropriate though.

If Boosh ends up playing it would be cool to do a 152 minutes one.
