2012//2013 Regular Season Avatars

I know these are normally reserved for the playoffs, but this is going to be a special season, and as such I think it'd be fun to do something equally special. My idea came, funnily enough from Marc Crawford.



"Semin belongs on the island of misfit toys, that's where those people go."

Well, that comment got me thinking, our team is kinda a group of misfits. Let me explain:

Semin - Been done already

Jokinen - Fringe 3rd liner in Dallas and Tampa who only had a job cause of his lethality in shootouts. First full season in Carolina? 81 GP, 30 goals and destroyed his previous goal and point career highs, also first time in 4 seasons he finished as a Plus player. Also has had 3 straight 45+ point seasons here, two of which were 50+

Ruutu - Through parts of 3+ seasons in Chicago he put up one 20 goal season and one 40 point season, 48 goals total and 60 assists in 228 games and was a combined -31. Four plus seasons in Carolina? 81 goals, 110 assits in 304 games. And only Ovechkin and Clutterbuck have more hits than him since he joined the team.

Pitkänen - Was eaten alive in Philly and universially reviled in Edmonton, came here to lead the league in ice time for two seasons (1 for sure but google told me 2), scored 7 GWG over the past 4 seasons, and became arguably our most consitant defenseman.

Harrison - After being drafted in the 3rd round in 2001, he went on to play a grand total of 20 NHL games between draft day '01 and when we aquired him in 2009. At one point thought his entire hockey career would be played in Switzerland. Now he's averaged 72gp the past two seasons and is one of our locker room leaders and one of the most liked 'Canes players.

Tlusty - Promising 1st round choice by the Leafs in 2006, who played 74 games combined in 4 seasons. Also got caught taking naked pictures of himself. Now he's coming off a 79gp season where he broke his career highs in EVERY statistic, and is one of our better top six players.

Corvo - Let's be honest, this is the only place he seems to be able to play, also he shuts down Ovi like no other, he's been on 5 teams since 2005, including us three times in the past three years. He once punched a lady at a bar and demanded a trade when we let Cole walk, now he's back to hopefully play alright with his buddy Gleason.

Jordan Staal - Bit of a stretch with this one, but I've had a few people tell me that Eric should have went to Pit than Jordan come here, or for them to unite in Toronto. Yet the good Ontario kid did the unthinkable and moved to a place where we don't even deserve a team cause we only watch NASCAR, and even worse he resigned for a decade. What was he thinking?


Anyway, those are just ones off the top of my head, but there're probably more. Thought it might be fun to roll with this group of misfit toys as they run all over the league straight into the playoffs, and hopefully further. You can build a perfect machine, with imperfect parts.

I'm on my laptop atm, so no photoshop, but I'll make a few gifs when I get home and see how they turn out.

Either way, really looking forward to the season, and let's go Hurricanes

How do you change it? I go by MadMardigan on several sites, but Misfit Semin would be too funny to pass up.

It's under your User CP, but you can only do it once a year unless you're a sponsor.

I think "dinz" is now available as a username. I'd go with that.

Let's see:

- The freaky smiling yeti is LaRose
- Rudolph and Clarice (yes, I remember the girl reindeer's name ) should be the Staal brothers.
- Whichever Cane had the best playoff beard should be the lumberjack.
- The train could be Gleason
- The blond elf is Skinner

What else?

Yes, it was. I think dmonk or someone had that picture as his avatar back then.

Obviously, Harrison has to be the Abominable Snow Monster of the North.

I'd like to do something around the contracts, how everyone on the team is overpaid, and how we're "ruining it" for the rest of the league.

Maybe something like:

Carolina Hurricanes - One step closer to a lockout.
Carolina Hurricanes - Overpaid, overrated, and overachieving.
Carolina Hurricanes - #1 cause of the lockout
Carolina Hurricanes - Well, the lockout worked in our favor last time.

Might be the KB size is too big?

Remote file is too large (is the error)


Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 125 by 125 pixels or 20.0 KB (whichever is smaller).
