I think something around the theme of "identity Crisis" or "rehab" would be funny.

"Who are we?" (confused or frusterated player photo) then a slide of the best the player can be on the ice and some other profession they could be in if they were to do something other than hockey.

Vanek - 40 goal sniper or (insert something outlandish...like, and forgive my poor sense of humour, Austrian yoddeler?)

Roy - PPG player or Diving Instructor?

Myers - Norris candidate or WNBA star?

You get the idea

I really do like the flipped avs, but I think it's too much of an inside reference. We need something almost antagonistic.

You could always add the words "Rally Avy" or something onto them.

I think that we should all just steal yours or make player versions that sparkle

That said, if we had "Arrow in the knee" avatars, I'd be down for that.
It would be better if one of our best players got hurt in the knee.

But my stance on themed avys is quite well known. Avoid them like the plague.

Anything but cucumbers, because that failed us...

How about ants. Because Ennis is putting the team on his back, much like an ant puts 50x it's weight in food on it's back to feed the colony. Also... every ant has a job to do, all work no play, stay focused on the task at hand, teamwork and dedication will do great things... Ants!

If you guys can't agree on something I submit we go Plan C and just filter Sabres photos through Blingee.

Instead of ants for Ennis, perhaps water bugs:
Quote:
Bill Hoppe ‏ @BillHoppeNHL
Drew Stafford also called Tyler Ennis a water bug today. Marcus Foligno repeated that again, too. Does this "nickname" stick?

Another possibility is a tongue-in-cheek regression line avatar.

it would be kind of funny if we had a "soft" to "tough" theme. Like, a picture of Pomminville, then a picture of the Downy softener Teddy bear with the phrase "regular season", and then a picture of Chucky the serial killing doll with the phrase "Payoffs".

huh....HUH?!?!

Yes. The Red Wings board did it when they got to 20 (or rather, XX) consecutive seasons making the playoffs.

You guys should do a <picture of Sabre being hit by someone> followed by Ruff saying "it's open season on ______", where that could be a position, player, or something completely random altogether (like "it's open season on short people" for Gerbe, or "its open season on leapers" for Foligno)

haha that's pretty good. Or a Joke theme, how can we forget his rant after the Lucic incident? I haven't quite figured out how to incorporate that without insulting the players...
