Possibility to get creative with the "stat" portion of it...could be cheeky like "Great Conversationalist" and have a shot of Brown/Doan in the handshake line etc..."Only in Blowouts" with Carter celebrating a SCF goal..."Fleeced" or "Bad CORSI" and have a pic of Richards..."Overrated" with Doughty..."Too Many Blondes" with Stoll etc...

I don't want to use the word fluke in the event they crash and burn in the 1st round. I'd prefer to either highlight one of the amazing stats they accomplished on the run or one of the negatives that is said about the run, team and/or specific players straight into a shot of the Cup being hoisted with "meh" just jumping out.
I like it. I think it works much better when using the amazing stats. It doesn't work as well with the negatives in my opinion. We would need something to tie it into this years playoffs I think, or else we're just talking about last year. That goes for the fluke idea too, keeping it relevant to this year.

That's a great way of looking at it.

I don't mean to derail the topic, so I'll leave it at that. If you want so specific pointers to help you improve your digital art skills, send me a PM.

It's an interesting concept, but MEH sounds like we don't care.

A "fluke" theme is a way to acknowledge how wrong all the haters are/were as this team (hopefully) goes deep in the playoffs.

I'd love a theme where we take one of these 20 Stanley Cup moments from Kings Vision and turn it into an avatar somehow.

Maybe an "If Only..." theme for all our detractors who tried to undermine every win?

If Only Pietranglo was playing...
If Only Kesler wasn't playing hurt...
If Only the Kings faced more opposition...
If Only the Refs Weren't Wearing Kings Uniforms...
If Only...


I would love it if we could sneak, "What Did You See??" at the end of all of that. I think it would combine quite well and ask for other ridiculous excuses as to why the Kings were able to trample everybody. It would make sense to other fans and be an inside joke for us.

If only the Kings had more difficult matchups.

You know... as if the 1, 2, and 3 seeds, followed by the East champion weren't difficult enough.

What did you see?

No Petro.
No Kesler.
No Strong Opponents.
No Hot Goalie.

I'd love to troll everyone with their own stereotypes!

Last year according to fans:

No Petro
No Kesler
No Halak
No Sedin (the ugly one)
No Parise (wait, he just didn't show up)
Kovalchuk was hurt
Refs were on our side

Before the po games:
Canucks D can stop the kings
David Booth can stop the Kings
Andy McDonald can stop the Kings
Smith is a wall

why would we promote our stanley cup run being branded a fluke? i mean what better evidence than the fans of that team sorta acknowledging it themselves. there hasnt been a more dominating cup run in years.

I am not good at this so I am not necessarily "submitting" these as our idea. I just got bored.

And I have a fondness for our PGT inside jokes.

This is for the ones we have lost along the way....













some of these I don't see looping so just open them in a new tab and they should work.


Or maybe I just failed.

One more that is too big to use as an avatar (for now), once again just out of boredom.



Maybe if I feel motivated and creative I will do some twitter ones tomorrow.

The only thing I'll chime in is to make sure whatever you put in theme won't be trolling other fans when you head out onto the main board. We won't want the playoff discussion to be about what's in your avatar, but what's happening in the games. Okay I said what I had to say

THIS ... just say NO to the Fluke idea ... people aren't smart enough to get it, and will say stupid stuff like see even Kings fans admit they were a fluke !

IF you have to explain it to them ... it's a poor idea.

twitter theme

LaKings tweets...

those are just from oilers game:
They aren’t happy with me up here right now because after that Slava Voynov goal I slid across the Press Box on my knees. #TRH

Jeff Carter pushes Nail Yakupov and finally the young rookie has been touched by greatness. #TRH

Really love the Kiss Cam during TV timeouts at Staples Center. I’m just surprised they didn’t kiss the Oilers’ playoff chances goodbye. #TRH

This 2nd period has been so exciting that I almost forgot the Anaheim Ducks lost to the Dallas Stars last night. Almost. #TRH

Usually when the Edmonton Oilers hear “3” and “1” together it refers to draft picks. #TRH

In Slava Voynov’s country a “one-timer” means how often you are allowed to use the heater. #TRH


etc... we will need some time to find some good tweets but

We could also go for a more serious approach with the twitter ones. Have a Kopitar one with a hashtag that says "Kopi" or something similar.
