Definitely worse than the first, but should be adequate.
Can't have that. Gilbert and Spurgeon are both right-handed.

Looking at our guys from last year in terms of PP points:

Suter - 25 (3)
Spurgeon - 12 (T-28)
Gilbert - 6 (T-74)
Scandella - 6 (T-74)
Prosser - 3 (T-105)

Heatley - 19 (T-39)
Koivu - 15 (T-69)
Parise - 14 (T-80)
Seto - 13 (T-91)
Brodz - 11 (T-113)
Cullen - 9 (T-134)
Clutter - 7 (T-156)
Butch - 7 (T-156)

Just guessing, but I'd probably go:

Parise - Koivu - Heatley
Suter - Spurgeon

Butch - Granlund - Seto
Gilbert - Cullen

Photoshop is an amazing thing.

The original picture was from DA, where it was Ronald Reagan carrying the US flag, titled "Reaganfield 3" or something similar. I then found a modified version of it with the Finnish flag and president Sauli Niinistö riding the raptor instead. I had an easy surprisingly complex task of replacing Niinistö's head with that of Mikael Granlund. And after OTH kindly replaced the flag with the SoH one, the legend was born.

It's beautiful.

It is, if only he could be blonde. Took me a minute or two to realize it was Granlund with the black hair.

I noticed that one small detail has changed also compared to original.. I think it must be already in Sauli Niinistö's picture. The original had a F-22 Raptor flying in the upper right corner. And this version.. there's F-18 Hornet I think (Finnish Air Force).

Anyways, the end result is one magnificent example of brainstorm and creativity. You started it originally then TaLon and NHL1674 finished it. Great work from all of you!!

Hats off.

If I ever get rich, narcissistic and famous I'm paying someone to paint that for me with me in the Granlund role.

My favorite Granlund memory, which isn't a real memory: Had a dream Sunday morning that I was driving around Winnipeg when I pulled alongside who I thought was Koivu at a stoplight. I rolled down my window and knocked on his, but when he turned, it was Mikael! I said, "Hey Michael!" He replied in an annoyed tone, "It's MEE-kyle." I asked him about the lockout, and he shyly stated that he was excited to play but the lockout wasn't over yet. I woke up moments later, and my wife said, "The lockout is over." Best morning so far this year.

Unfortunately, I lost the blonde hair when I changed the colors to match the original better. I tried to change it yesterday, but my photoshop skills weren't good enough.

...Can someone change that, please?

1. Lost it right here.

2. Are we sure dream Granlund doesn't have the power to bring collective bargaining together? I can see him doing that; preferably while riding a dinosaur.

I think it was FBJ's father Scot Beckenbaugh who actually did it. But St. Mikael of Dreams surely hinted him about it.

In the last couple days we have a dinosaur-riding, sword-wielding Granlund and now "St. Mikael of Dreams." Thank you NHL for coming back if just for the nicknames.

Don't have it. I use Paint.NET for all of my image editing needs.

Photoshop is just easier to say.
