Since we've gone from President's Trophy winner to Eastern Conference winner to 7th seed, why not have a theme along the lines of "Just getting by" or "half-assing it"?
Yes, with the picture of Ovie from the yacht in turkey, with the Princess Leia towel over his ears, and the upside down glasses. And something to the effect of, '1st seed, 7th seed ... who gives a s--t?'
Or, how about like those tee shirts "We Survived The Regular Season 2012!"
The 8-bit avatars took an insane amount of work.
Instead, do what other fan bases do. They can be animated, but make them use a stock slideshow, then one single freeze frame that gets edited.
The 8-bit ones won't work unless Integral quits his job and/or I get less selfish. Both unlikely.
Yeah they do take a lot of work relative to typical slide-show avatars. They're not too difficult to create, but you do need to put some effort in. I'll probably be too busy with projects and exams to make a lot like I did last year (which can still be found here if anyone is interested).
Something based around showing Ward during the regular season and then having it say UNLEASH THE FURY and having Ward turning into the Hulk with something along the lines of "playoff hockey" or "mr. playoffs" or "mr 3 million" on his chest
