I get what you're saying, and of course not everyone will get it either, if they haven't seen Ancient Aliens or know the meme, which raises that question.

Sorry if my response sounded defensive. I'm not offended, but I am sure you could say the same for other avatars as well. The Geico one is even a good example, what does car insurance have to do with NYR, or frozen pizza?

I guess the other thing is too, we're probably not going to come up with anything that the entire fanbase will be on board with, unfortunately.

I hope there will still be a few more ideas tomorrow and Monday before we add the poll, or maybe even some later in the week.

Sure, I am trying to think of something interesting for the #therightway, I'm just not sure what to do with the second pane.

Pane 1:

Picture of Callahan blocking a shot
Ryan Callahan blocks shots...

Pane 2:

#therightway

but what picture do you use for the second pane?

Maybe a shot of a twitter account that says #therightway? The NYR twitter? We could Photoshop that up.

Edit: I will try to have a mock-up for each idea by the time the poll goes up added to the first post so people can compare the actual concept versus just the idea.

That wouldn't be a bad idea. I'd say maybe do individual player accounts but obviously not every player has one.

Right, I thought of that as well, but like you said, not all of them have one. We could make one up in Photoshop using a similar text as what Twitter uses (if anyone knows what font they use, let me know...) and pretend they do though, I guess.

@RCal24NYR

Sounds like a legit Callahan Twitter account, right?

And the Penguins #SOPO thing has anything to do with hockey? This is really funny, and for that reason it doesn't have to be intensively about hockey. It's still about the Rangers.

still think the playoff avatars should be based on either Thornton's quote "softest team" from early in the season or the "it's just pain" mantra.

I will add softest team to the poll, "it's just pain" however is already smeared after last post-seasons poor showing.

Yeah I love the aliens theme. Lots of really funny opportunities with that one.

BTW, the pens playoffs shirt off avatars are the worst playoff avatars I've ever seen on hfboards.

Poll will be coming tomorrow. I just wanted to give people sometime to throw out ideas before the actual concept is voted on.

More mock-ups coming today as well.

There's an idea. Can Photoshop the player's heads on someone wearing a blank t-shirt they're holding up on themselves and put some of those goofy one-liners on them like, "Stepan is my wingman."

I'm sure we could come up with more clever sayings that are Ranger related.

Actually I think it's a big FU to all the Dbbiefans/main board haters who kept posting that crap that we were lucky.

I was thinking something like:
First pane - "Corsi? No just lucky" with a pic of Rupp doing the Jagr salute at the WC
2nd Pane - pic of Torts double fist pump - with the "rightway" quote or hashtag

Okay I change my mind. If these are up for voting, I'll vote for them. I like how you added actual aliens and UFOs in them.

Aliens one is absolutely gold. I call Anton Stralman. "...so how was it that Stralman was cut by the Blue Jackets?"

Oh man. The Aliens thing is hilarious. Please make a poll tomorrow. I really wanna start making suggestions for one specific avatar design.

And if it is the Aliens, I call: "...So how was it that the Rangers finished in 1st?"

I won't be able to use an avatar for a little while, let's hope we can stay in the playoffs long enough for the sole purpose of me using one of these

Nothing beats the epic zombie avatars. If we go the aliens route I want a "Who taught Anisimov how to shoot a shotgun?"

I agree, DoTheBlue and I were just saying the zombie avatars were probably the best this board has seen.
