We need ideas.


What about Lecavatars to commemorate the first bolt to play 1000 games for the Lightning?

What about throwback avatars with players from the original 92-93 team?

What about a Mickey Mouse watch with his arms as the arms of a clock going around and around, but make it Stamkos?

What about avatars that look like our new giant video board?

What about a #HockeyIsBack theme showing just the backs of the players?

That one is great. But you could use others guys from the past 20 seasons as well. With a tag line of 20 years and still ticking or something.

Maybe have a picture of some on from the first season then change/morph to someone from the cup team then to someone in the current roster with the 20 years of thunder tag line?

I like the throwback avatar idea.

I'd actually think there'd be a certain charm if they also looked like they were designed in 92. Looking all Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Neon n' ****.

That way, it'd still convey the inaugural season motif, but allow for the full spectrum of players.

I'm thinking an awesome backstory would be: When the Lightning first started, all of us were on HFB and had avatars that bore utterly insane predictions for what we thought the team, league, and world's future would be over the next 20 years. 2012-13 arrives and we revisit those avatars to see how our predictions played out. Either correct or not.

Vincent LeCavalier will be drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
2004 is going to be totally rad.
A 2-year old in Markham is going to become the face of our franchise. U Can't Touch This will be his goal song.
Brent Gretzky will be better than his brother.
MC Hammer's popularity has already peaked.
Terry Crisp will still have the most games coached in team history.
Espo will have a statue outside wherever the Bolts are playing then.
TB will have gotten a MLB team and the Thunderdome will have become it's stadium.

I like that, but it should be 'hockey paradise' to seem coincidental.

Succumb doesn't sound like a 1992 word though. Maybe a bit more straightforward. 'A Penguin player turned scouts' son will play in hockey paradise (Tampa). His dad will be the team's head scout.'

I got another one: Steve Yzerman will become the team's GM.
20 years from now, every prospect will be Russian or French-Canadian.

A guy who doesn't know anything about hockey will become the league's commissioner.

Here is my new Avatar.
The left is a photo of me from April 8 1996. (I know I have some from earlier but could not find them.)
Lightning were losing 3-0 in the 2nd period.
I put on the equipment and they stomed back to win 4-3.
My older brother took the photo to show how ridicules I looked.
A week later The Lightning made the playoffs for the first time.
The right is taken today with the help of my 4 year old.

Any progress on the avatar front? There are plenty of good ideas here, just need someone who's good with a program to create them. Maybe a mod can create a poll on three or four of the better ideas and we'll leave it to a vote?
