2012-13 Avatars

Yeah, well, it's a slow summer. I realized there were new background pictures on the Lightning homepage:

Hedman: http://2.cdn.nhle.com/lightning/v2/e...site_FINAL.jpg
Purcell: http://cdn.nhl.com/lightning/v2/ext/...background.jpg
(there could be more?!)

Maybe we could use them as templates for new avatars for next season.

Let's just share ideas for possible themes (besides the obvious ones: "(Still) All In", "Be The Thunder", "Bolts Nation", etc.) and pictures here...

In a good spirited idea inspired from the main board:

"Stevie paid HOW MUCH for (X)?!"

Could be anything. Players, Shamwow, a new car.. etc. You get the idea. Basically poke at SFY's 'carelessness' with Vinik's debit card.

Who had the idea for "It's all part of the Yzerplan..." a few months back? I liked that one.

What about a theme highlighting all the commonly seen 'flaws' of the Lightning by other fans.

Like a pic of MSL scoring with the caption 'too old'
Lecavalier 'overpaid'
Stamkos 'bust'
Hedman 'should have picked Duchene'

etc etc

And then you tie this in with the Yzerplan thing, the next pic is a either a trolling face or a pic Yzerman or a combo of the two and then 'all part of the Yzerplan'

No one knows the Yzerplan except the man himself.

That could lend itself to a DaYzer Code type of thing where seemingly unrelated things are all part of the plan.

Maybe something based on 2012 supposedly being the end of the world...

"Carle got that much?!? Sure sign it's the end of the world. Yzerplan, 2012."


Or maybe something based around the presidential elections / RNC.

Like modify whatever stupid looking campaign posters the candidates are using to show lightning players instead. Something like that red white and blue Obama poster from 4 years ago, but instead of Obama it's Stamkos, and instead or "HOPE" it says "GOALS". Obviously not that specific one since I'm sure the candidates will have different ones, but you get the idea.

The Mayan end of the world is a fad. Too obvious, IMO. It'll be over by Christmas, and then we'll have outdated avatars.

and as for your political idea...let 4 years ago be 4 years ago. If you're going to revive a political campaign I'd rather stick with something that people don't immediately have an opinion about, but know enough to get where the reference is coming from.

ex. "Tippecanoe and Tyler too".

How about Shanny/Director of Player Safety/suspension avatars?

How about an avatar that looks like it was designed for the 1992 inaugural season Lightning?

Yeah, I'm with Python. Something less topical than 2012 or the Elections...

I wouldn't mind playing around with the "Yzerplan".

"Having a midget on your top line?"

"All part of my Yzerplan" with Stevie Y photoshopped on Palpatine in the Death Star or some ****.

That was mine. The idea was have random stuff and then the phrase "all part of the Yzerplan. Ideas were:
Lidstrom retires? all part of the Yzerplan
Thomas takes a year off? all part of the Yzerplan

Can even now add Suter and Parise, Nash, Weber and of course Lindback, Carle and Salo.

That works with what my idea was as well.

I like that.

Or something about our 20th anniversary: 20 Years Of Thunder

Yeah I was just using that as an example and mentioned it should be based off of this year's campaign posters.

I like the idea for incorporating the 92 season into the avatars. Would be a great way to celebrate 20yrs.

I like the Yzerplan idea in reference to random NHL events (like Thomas taking a break), but I'm not sure how I feel about the whole "highlighting our teams flaws". Its funny, but it seems like a bit of a rehash of the Rangers "This is a bad team" avatars from this past season.

I like the idea of doing something for the 20th anniversary. We could do them like the 20 Years Of Thunder website with each avatar as a different great (or any) moment in bolt history.

Can't go wrong with the Yzerplan either

This is what we need to use.

Lecavalier: Overpaid and Overrated
St Louis: Old and Declining
Stamkos: One Dimensional
Malone: Salary Dump
Hedman: Bust
Salo: Injured Fossil
Carle: Addition By Subtraction
Brewer: Minus Magnet
Purcell: Product of Stamkos
Connolly: Who?


I could probably do the whole team lol.

Haha, yeah those are good.
Maybe Carle could be "subtraction by addition"?
