The Terry Crews idea from last year was REALLY good but that might be better served for playoff avatars. Really hope that gets re-visited in case there's a way to fit it under the 20KB limit.

Yeah I really liked it but it was so hard to execute under the size limit.

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?
I really like the first one. As for the second one, if someone wanted to do it, instead of putting out great players, put out guys with long careers that never won a cup (or better yet notorious chokers)

I would be over the moon if my avatar could be Schroeder -> The Great One

Lack = Henrik Lundqvist
Cannata = Roy? Hasek? Brodeur?
Gaunce = Jordan Staal?
Tanev = ??
Rodin = ??
Schroeder = Kadri

Also,

"We play to win... the draft"
"Future > Present"
"An elite team in 5 years... and today".
"#1 in draft > #1 in regular season"...

Also, "Canada's Team" would be nice... "Team Integrity"

I also really like other team's pop culture-centric avys.

Frame 3: Image of the player in a game. Top of image says "The next", bottom of image says "[INSERT SUPERSTAR NAME HERE]"

OR

Frame 3: Image of superstar with rookie's face/head photoshopped onto body. Top of image says "The next", bottom of image says "[INSERT SUPERSTAR NAME HERE]"
You could make the photoshopped head extra big to make it look goofy.

For the playoffs, can we go with something like "Quest for the Asterisk" just throwing that out there...

1. "This is our year"?
2. We can stick with last years quotes like you mentioned? "Embrace the hate"
3."Integrity" - The Canucks do have a lot of class and I am sure integrity unlike Boston.

Frame #1 A quote with a beautiful Canucks background
Frame #2 Any player

Thats all I got for now. Can you make me a avatar too please.

Just because I'm sick of hearing the word albatross, I'd love to see a theme around it...maybe "Kiss my Albatro$$"

I'd like to see that bird pooping on Dregerface.

It looks like you made a few of them already.
They look great!

But I think you may want to slow down the frame by frame a little bit.


edit: derp, didn't see new thread
