PO avatars? Might want to wait to see if we actually make the POs first. But then again I am a bit old school on avatars I have had the same one since I started here....

That's kind of the point. Bubble team, lacking buy-in, scapegoats, goaltending and injury problems, pining for past players, but still: PLAYOFFS.

I'm 100% on board with this. I'll have to think it over and probably come begging for someone with some skills to make my avatar over the weekend.

Frankly, I think the Detroit fans should be more worried about missing the playoffs than the Blues (after that win in Chicago tonight).

Yeah this team isn't missing the playoffs. A win tomorrow and we're in 7th.

How about one like this:
1) No buy-in face-palm
2) DIVE! (superimposed on the above).
3) Playoffs (similar to the first example earlier on this thread).

With either a still shot from this or working the .gif in there somehow.

I couldn't find a single image, but maybe there's one around I just haven't come across. I have no clue how to make one.

It's funny when it moves, but I had a bear of a time optimizing so many frames without the resulting gif looking absolutely terrible. I'm not sure it's possible with such strict avatar regulations. So I ended up with this one:



If you want it closer to your original idea, let me know, but I like the wordless beat on that one - and I hope people will recognize the Perron dive.

More tomorrow.

I have an idea just have no idea how to put it into avatar form.

Something along the lines of the The St. Louis Blues Curse X The Bouwmeester Curse = Stanley Cup

Like how multiplying two negative numbers makes them a positive.

Again no idea how to put it into avatar form.

I'll add it to the in-progress list in the OP. We'll figure something out.

David Backes playoff beard caption with: "Playoff beard?"

Hitchock's reaction as either a facepalm or something else.

Until it's all 100% a done deal, I think the avatar should have a "?" after "playoffs", unless I'm not getting the point yet???

Ugh, how are you guys putting images in the body of your posts? I can do the attachment, but not within my actual post.

Come on, someone please help out the n00b...please?

Although, along those lines. If you could make one for me that has

slide 1: blues logo
slide 2: frustrated Hitch, with the words "Who's down with OZP?" towards the top in decent sized text and "offensive zone penalties" in small print at the bottom", if it all fits.
slide 3: the below picture with "Yeah you know me!"



Something along those lines would be much appreciated. Thanks!

just go to advanced post option, and there will be an icon at the top that has a picture of some mountains and the sun, in yellow. Then just put the location in there. make sure you don't have "http" in there twice at the beginning.

edit: or just quote my above post with the image and remove my link between the [IMG] text and copy yours in there instead, and yours will show up.

We should do one around the goaltending circus we've had this season.

I'm not really good with this stuff but I don't know if we would want to do something like...

One slide: "Jaro's Team" (with pic of Halak in background, maybe of him laying on the ice)

Next slide: "Not impressed" text at bottom

Stewart: I got this
Playoffs

I'm working on mine now, but I'll need someone to put it together. I think it'll turn out pretty cool.
