2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs Avatars - Theme Voting

This is for discussion on the themes. Obviously a majority fan consensus will overule the results of this poll, but let's see what people like. We'll see if you can get some samples up soon, but the idea is that everyone is using the same template to show solidarity for our team.

It's Just Pain.

I like all those ideas, but I was thinking of another theme based on all the history that happened at MSG and we could pick different parts of history and then add the Rangers and say more history begins 2011 Playoffs.

Incorporate the rally for cally along with the 2011 Stanley cup playoff logo somewhere.

Judging by my username, I obviously chose "this team has balls."

Other. The rest sound like edits from a Sylvester Stallone script. Why not just go with the old classic 'Theyre gonna need a good supply of body bags !'

Get ready to be blown away - No theme, everyone does what they want.

Radical, but it may just work !

I'm in favor for its just pain... that pretty much sums up the heart as well as balls on the team. Prust, Boyle, Girardi, Sauer, Eminger, guys who lack in skill but make up for in effort just come to mind and they are gonna be a big part if we go anywhere in the playoffs.

Rally for cally is noble and all but it doesn't show us what this team is all about. Like it was said, just implement Rally for cally into some avatars with "its just pain"

It's just pain.

Rally for Cally implies 1) Callahan is more important to this team than he really is and 2) We shouldn't rally for ourselves, rally for the fans, rally for the city

I think the Rally for Cally is mostly because it rhymes.

Don't really care what theme, I just think the avatars should have some humor in them.

I just don't like that this "Rally for Cally" idea really makes Callahan overshadow the rest of the team. This year we were such a "team" in every sense of it, Callahan did not carry us. It would be a shame if we decide to ignore the efforts of at least 22 other guys to focus on one guy like this.

I went with "It's Just Pain", but I'm fine with anything.

Pain has been a recurring theme for us the entire season. That's my vote.

We are all Ranger fans united, all having a playoff avatar is unified enough, we don't all have to wear the same uniform/jersey at the garden where we go to cheer, same should apply here

'Rally Cally' is nice but its about one player, not the team so that ones out. Balls and pain, is too generic, any team can use those. Someone has to come up with something that signifies this years team or we just go with chaos and its every avatar for himself.

Well the "it's just pain" theme stems from one of Prust's quotes after a game so it's not too generic and it basically fits exactly what this team has gone through the entire year.

Three words sum up the season so far

Prust was being asked if he might play, and he told reporters:

“It’s just pain.”
