I like IS's idea. Maybe combine those with the 20th anniversary... something along the lines of "20 years... and still here / hockey in the South" and add players and events from our 20 year old history.

Obvious ones:

Andreychuk with the Stanley Cup: fluke
Norfolk player with Calder Cup: fluke


something with Manon Rheaume

something with Phil Esposito, Terry Crisp, Art Williams, Feaster, Torts, OK Hockey, Genius Lawton, gamblin' Tocchet, Vinik, Yzerman, Boucher...

something with Mishkin ("horn man"), the Chief ("tsssk"), Peckham, Dinger, (bald) PK, Cristodero, EE, Thunderbug, and so on...

something with the Expo Hall, the Thunderdome, and former players (or even legends) as Chris Kontos (and his record), Brian Bradley, Denis Savard, Paul Ysebaert, Daren Puppa, Rob Zamuner, Wendel Clark, Roman Hamrlik, Dino Ciccarelli, John Cullen, Petr Svoboda, Brad Richards, Dan Boyle, Nikolai Khabibulin, Freddy Modin, Pavel Kubina, Ruslan Fedotenko, Vinny Prospal, ...

More ideas:
Fedotenko - "A 4th overall pick for that?!" (use image of him scoring Cup-winning goal)
St. Louis/Conacher - "Too small to ever make it!" (use side by side images of Marty with Stanley Cup, Conacher with Calder Cup)
Ranger - "Where's Ranger?" (I don't know...a picture of the North Pole)


Then show "Fluke" or "All part of the Yzerplan" or whatever we decide on.

Then 20th anniversary logo.

So how do we decide?

I guess, ultimately it's up to Days, anyway!

We still of plenty of time to come up with more ideas if we can't decide on anything yet (especially if there's a lockout)

We could always add a poll and vote on the top ideas

Nah, I know there are a few of you out there who have shopped a photo once or twice. If somebody wants to do them, go for it!

I could probably do the whole team lol.
These....are great. I really like the Lecavalier, Purcell, and Carle ones

With the season starting to fade away more and more every day is it time to change our creative direction until we know a season is coming?

Any interest in Crunch avatars?

It's still the team's 20th year

There's got to be something that combines a lockout and an anniversary.

The lockout angle is pretty interesting just by itself as what does the CBA unlock exactly?

Intensity Unlocked, Passion Unlocked, Physicality Unlocked, Scoring Unlocked, Potential Unlocked. **** like that.

I like your idea.

Potential = Lindback, the Crunch kids and all the other prospects
Intensity = Boucher
Scoring = Stamkos, St. Louis, Lecavalier, Purcell, (Malone, Pouliot)
Physicality = Malone, Crombeen, ...?
Passion = Thompson, (St. Louis), ...?

What is Hedman's main attribute? Or Carle's?

Some guys are a bit hard to figure, but the premise has enough room to get very specific or silly.

Bergeron - Turnovers: Unlocked
Hedman - Offense/Big Minutes/Upside/Skill Set/Pokecheck?/(qualifies for potential as well)
Carle - #25/Return
Movember Malone - Mustache: Unshaved
MSL - Hockey IQ/Effort/PP/(endless possibilities)
Wilson - Who He Is
Whoever the meat shield is - Blocks: Unlocked
DNA - Building: Blocks

Since it's less than 82 games we can't celebrate the whole 20th anniversary. We can only celebrate a piece of it thanks to the lockout. A fraction of the anniversary. This board loves fractions. 50/82?

Really Im disappointed in you guys.

Hedman: Hedmonster: Unlocked



I like this idea and I hate the Xbox but we could use a 360 Achievement unlocked type template.



Put the players number in the empty circle.

Could put this at the bottom and a pic of the player for the rest. Or just run with just this with the players number in the empty spot.

Something like that?

Nice. To think I spent 15 minutes making my own

Although youd still have to put the players number in it.

I kinda like the idea. Not sure what everyone else thinks haha.
