If we're doing an avatar theme, I'll make the same vote as I did for the last few years - "Empire Strikes Back".
I actually remember now that you say.

Id go for an Empire Strikes back avatar

But im still digging the evil vibe.. It's just fitting with all the hate we get...

The dictator route would be good.

Canucks players as Stalin, Mussolini, Jong-Il, Hitler, Castro, Pol Pot, etc.

Someone in the last avatar thread suggested "Quest for the Asterisk*" for this year's playoffs.
That's my personal favorite so far.

(the asterisk being a shortened season)

This theme has had a kaibosh put on it, as they violate the Offensive Content section of the Site Rules.

Fictional/movie villains are kosher; real life mass murderers are not.

The great thing about Empire Strikes back is it has the scene with all the bounty hunters on one of the star destroyers talking to Darth Vader. You could use them.

Since you summarilly ignored my advice to beat your boyfriend with a newspaper for being a Hawks fan, I must now insist that you drop what you are doing and go see the movies. Rent them from a store. Borrow them from a library. Watch them on Netflix. Steal them from your Grandmother. I don't care. JUST DO IT.

If you took the rink stick logo that has the green C as part of it and make the same thickness of green line across under the stick, you will have your e logo for evil empire.

I wish we still had Raffi Torres for the sole purpose of being Boba Fett (he has a jet pack, Raffi kind of jumped into the hit on Hossa).

So far I has this... Don't know how to post a picture from my hard drive so I just changed my avatar. Will have a go at your Idea may be as I had not thought of it. Im a little disappointed that Vancouver would not fit on.

Thanks again Zombo!!

As for a set of Avys I like the idea of anti heroes, If there was an actor that has an abnormal amount of villain roles, each player could be a different one, bit to complicated to do I think, I had this Idea that each player could be a Johnny Depp character, cause they are so random. But that doesn't have anything Canuck related to it.

The dynasty avs are the best yet.

The poster with the Schredder avatar was arguing with Oilers fans about our prospects cuz they were knocking ours. Schredder came up. It was gut busting hilarious watching him defend Schredder with that avatar.

The only way to stop the same old annoying stuff being brought up all the time by other fans is if we embrace it entirely no matter how despicable it may be. I'd suggest avatars with every incident that makes people hate the Canucks in gif form then after the gif a quick flash to the Canucks logo and the wording All Class. And by no matter how despicable I mean one of those avatars should be Bertuzzi Moore, atleast one should be of the riot, burrows and the finger incident, Hansen and the referee, Hansen and Hossa since everybody is currently pissed about it, Lapierre and his finger, Ryan Kesler's dive against LA last year. Basically we own everything the other fans like to use against us and then suddenly using it against us is last palatable.

Good idea in principle and I'm down, but those are probably a no-go.

Agree

You have a good list going. Lets think of more.

Remember when Burrows scattered the snow back into the goalie crease after the goalie finished cleaning it up. The goalie cleaned it up again then Burrows did it AGAIN ! Word got out that Trevor Linden (of all guys) told Burr to do it.

Does Matt Cooke as a Canuck count ?
