It copies the Twitter logo:



The iPhone slide is a reference to social media.

I love it. It definitely has to be the Twitter theme.

I also rocked that one (Legionnaire's, in honor of his comeback) last year so maybe a combination of it and the twitter theme - like instead of a player it'd be the lion, followed by another slide that says "#workedlastyear".

Unless we suffer a first round collapse (and it can happen), at which point all we'll be doing to giving those who think it is a fluke ammo.

I like the social media ideas better with the hashtags. Provides for more creative options, especially with the hashtag part.

#weowntheNHL
#Stanleywood
#drinkingfromthecup
#WhatdidyouSEE
#dryisland
#winatwinning
#thecupholdsa26oz
#repeat
#wescoremorethanronjeremy

etc. And I'm sure many of you are more funny/creative than I.

And that can happen, but I think it's good to have some swagger (we could take some cues from the Kings Twitter). If they go out in the first round, the avatars will the least of my worries.

I rather not have the "Fluke" theme because I don't want to keep explaining it to all the Canucks, Ducks, Blues and Coyotes fans.

Twitter is so effing stupid. Not saying the idea is, just Twitter in general.

As for the "fluke" theme, I think the boards would have no problem understanding it since it was a discussion all throughout summer, the lock out and still pops up in threads.

I haven't read the twitter thread because I'm sure it's a giant waste of time, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone brought up the Kings being a fluke or something to that effect. If the fluke theme is mentioned inside of the twitter thread, then it is more prevalent than a bunch of teenagers and Edmonton fans upset about the Kings twitter feed.

Not quite understanding how HF wouldn't understand a "fluke" theme when LA has commonly been called the worst Cup Winner in the last ten years all over these boards.

If we use the twitter theme, can we ditch the iphone from it though? I hate those damn things.

Oh, and change the color from blue to some sort of Kings color, be it black/silver or purple. Biting the Twitter font for the logo is good enough: doesn't have to be blue as well.

The twitter theme has more possibilities since it can range from last season or this season. The fluke theme limits us to last year. Plus, if anyone wanted the fluke theme, we can make a twitter avatar with a fluke hashtag.

I think the twitter logo has to be instantly recognizable or else it's going to take too long for people to get it. Maybe the bird with a crown? Here's a rough mockup:

TWITTER idea IT IS ! ... I think it plays off the Kings Twitter hate (jealousy) around the NHL, hasn't been done before that I've seen, and offers the widest variety of options. The FLUKE idea could be incorporated into some of the #hashtag sections for those that like that. Overall I think the best layout would be to combine what ReclamationProject , KingsKnight and MollerManor have already mocked up.

plus plus
and this works best, iconic Twitter logo yet adds KINGS touch to it - maybe add LA /or LA Kings home plate logo in bottom right corner ? or as said change the Blue background to RoyalPurple

It would be great if we can do the rotating 4 panel .gifs again, like last year ...

1 - hand holding iPhone but with 2012 LA Kings Championship logo displayed on screen instead of just SC Playoffs logo
2 - LA Kings Twitter logo (Twitter Bird w/ Kings Crown)
3 - Picture of who your Taunt is directed at (i.e. Pic of Canucks w/ @BeatVancouverAgain)
4 - Picture of LA Kings Player/team/cup whatever w/ Hashtag (i.e. Pic of Brown rocking Sedin w/ #You'reWelcomeCanada)


and we can expand on that or take it the various other Directions talked about in this thread ...


MORIARTY versions;
--------------------
1 - hand holding iPhone but with 2012 LA Kings Championship logo displayed on screen
2 - LA Kings Twitter logo (Twitter Bird w/ Kings Crown)
3 - Picture of Dan Moriarty (w/ @FSWDanTheMan)
4 - Picture of LA Kings Player w/ Hashtag (Pic of Brown w/ #SoBrownieWhatDidYOUsee?)


FLUKE / If Only (combo) versions;
---------------------------------
1 - hand holding iPhone but with 2012 LA Kings Championship logo displayed on screen
2 - LA Kings Twitter logo (Twitter Bird w/ Kings Crown)
3 - Picture of 2012 PlayOffs (i.e. Pic of Brown rocking Sedin w/ @WeBeat#1SeedVancouver) or (Quick stopping AndyMac Goal w/ @IfOnlyAndMacPlayed)
4 - Picture of LA Kings Player Lifting Cup w/ Hashtag (Pic of Brown lifting Cup w/ #Beating#1SeedInFiveIsAFluke?) or (Pic of Quick lifting MVP/Cup w/ #SweepingStLouisIsAFluke?)


EX-KINGS Player versions;
---------------------------------
1 - hand holding iPhone but with 2012 LA Kings Championship logo displayed on screen
2 - LA Kings Twitter logo (Twitter Bird w/ Kings Crown)
3 - Picture of EX-KING (i.e. Pic of Ryan Smyth w/ @Cryin'Ryan) or (Pic of Hicky w/ @4thPickOverall) or (Pic of 44DD w/ @Thnx44DD)
4 - Picture of LA Kings Stanley Cup w/ Hashtag (or Pic of Ryan Smyth w/ #CryerGoesHomeLosesChanceToLiftCup) or (Pic of Hicky w/ #Becomes1stRoundDraftWaiver) or (Pic of 44DD w/ #WeWon!!!)


As you can see this opens up the options to include just about all the ideas and incorporate everyone's work efforts and ideas into this years avatar theme the best IMO. I think we should base it around this.

I think the frame with the iPhone is redundant and pointless.

Ditch the phone panel and just add "2013 Playoffs" somewhere, probably on the Twitter logo thing.

Should be no reference to 2012 SC Champs as these are 2013 playoff avatars...let any pictures from last playoff speak to winning the Cup.

I don't think the phone is necessary. We should probably keep it simple. Some version of: photo, hashtag, Stanley Cup logo.

These are amazing and I vote for these. Really great work. Problem is I can't really think of that many hashtags to use.

#CorsiAllStar for Williams? Leads league in Corsi stat or whatever.
#Top5Center for Kopi? Sutter called him one.
#KHLBound for Slava? Since apparently a KHL team really wants to sign him this offseason.
#PressBox for Penner?

Just throwing out ideas. Probably all awful.
