The question is, will people know who we're mocking? or should it be more like a three frame execution with current player in the first frame with name, "Vancouver Canucks 2013: Over the Hill?" in the second frame, and the older player in the third frame with name?

Lack = Henrik Lundqvist
Cannata = Roy? Hasek? Brodeur?
Gaunce = Jordan Staal?
Tanev = ??
Rodin = ??
Tanev- Lidstrom? thinking high hockey IQ, not really a point getter right now i guess
Jensen- Hull? Dat shot maybe Rick Nash
Rodin- Forsberg for no other reason than the lulz (swedish connection )
Connauton- Coffey for no other reason than the fact that he's a defenseman. Anything to get at Edmonton.

would die for a Schroeder one, ok maybe not die, but love dearly

If we did go with the rookies we could do an upside downside thing

Pic 1: Corrado
Pic 2: "upside" Pietrangelo
pic 3: "downside" Carlson

-----------------------

Though we could go with something about the vets not being as good as some other teams players

Luongo he's no Scrivens

I was thinking

frame 1: [player from now] *TEXT - "player name"
*TEXT - "or"
frame 2: [player from past] *TEXT - "player name"
frame 3: *TEXT - "Vancouver Canucks, over the hill?"

Schroeder = MSL? Meh...Should be a centre. Plus I think Schroeder will be better defensively. EDIT: Gretzky should do it, I think.
Gaunce = Lindros

That could work. I like that a lot

If we aren't allowed to use other team's players in our avatars, then we should stick to hall of fame comparisons (Corrado = Orr, Schroeder = Marcel Dionne, etc).

I don't think we're allowed to mock other players in our avatars. We're just mocking our own players in these.

Clarify, mods?

Damn, if we would have drafted Pathrik Westerholm's twin brother we could have used the Westerholms = Sedins comparison.

Something based around exaggerations of how good our prospects are.
Superstar prospects theme?

Corrado = Bobby Orr/Nicklas Lidstrom
Schroeder = Martin St. Louis
Eddie Lack = Henrik Lundqvist
etc...
Gotta put Corrado in a team canada jersey, biting on a gold medal...that'd be classic. And use Scott Niedermayer as the comparisson.

So we have all our prospects, and a great idea of what to do with our existing players. We just need to think of a great slogan to put on it... "The Next Dynasty" i heard is pretty good.

I know we're talking about prospects but I'd love to see a Dale Weise = Gretzky one after the season he had in the Dutch league.

What about trade value from other teams?

Sedins for Frattin, Colton Orr and Finger

So I'm running into an issue photoshopping the rookies into the greats. The quality at 125x125 is way too low to see their faces to know that it's them.

So I can either do a three frame gif with
frame 1: picture of rookie with name and number
frame 2: Vancouver Canucks 2013: The Next Dynasty
frame 3: picture of the legend

Or we have to come up with something else. The bigger images aren't the issue, but when you shrink them to avatar size, it gets unrecognizable.

What I was thinking we could do was go with each players stereotype about why they won't win the cup or whatever, like
Vancouver Canucks 2013: Window's Closed?
