Also, "Nailed it" could be both serious and satirical in its usage, which allows for both jokes and regular compliments of players who deserve it (i.e. Datsyuk, Yzerman, Lidstrom).

I love it, I want about Z being captain. Will a .gif work for the "nailed it" part?

I'll post the pic and gif once I find it, or make it (the .gif) if I have to.

Something like: Hockeytown Survival Guide/Rules.
I see what you're saying. I would choose a theme that could express my pride and amazement if the Wings do manage to make the PO's. The genius of the Survival Guide was it could be used however one wanted, positive or negative/humorous.

A great one last year was the Flyers' "Rookie Mistake." The worst of all was the Pens "play-offs, shirts off." That could be the worst of all time. Not funny, not interesting, downright queer.

My ideas in the moment are, "don't count on it..." or hey "count on it" "against all odds..." "22 years and counting..." That theme could allow favorite players to be incorporated. Something fairly generic and simple could be good. "Nailed It" is pretty good so far.

And I just saw that that Survival Guide was used last year.

I think nailed it just mocks players and people on the team. At least so far.

Rather see something different, like a spoof of something. Take Babcock's cowboy-hat from the last Winter Classic and the stubbornness of Holland to make a team from within our own picks. And with the upcoming Winter Classic make it a Western-theme because we have been in the Playoffs for so long. Like a spoof of that old "Magnificent Seven"-movie(s).

Magnificent Six (Players on ice) - Western Theme - Everybody with cowboy-hats and some short sentence, like "Farm boy qualified" or like with different job titles from the Western-era. Since it's the teams last season in the Western Conference.

or

a spoof of those Trinity spaghetti-westerns from the 70s/80s.

or something completely different.

Gold Rush - Everyone needs luck.

Or a spoof of all the trade offers we have had but missed out on.

"We have only one offer - Win the whole thing" (Or Win it for short).

Here is an example of the theme used seriously.



I do like the idea of a western theme. Utilizing clever nicknames for players and perhaps giving them cowboy paraphernalia.

Nailed it is generic but flexible.

Last western hurrah is inspired and memorable. Do that one!

The Western theme isn't a bad idea either.

If we do that, I want one that has a picture of Toews and Hank side by side with a caption that says "This Conference ain't big enough for the both of us."

And then the next shot is just of Hank with a caption that says "Ok. We'll be leaving now..."

An idea for the Western theme:

<pic of Dats & Z> "This ain't our 1st rodeo."


Still like nailed it though. It can be used positively too. For example: Find a new captain? <pic of Z> Nailed it.

The problem I have is that you could apply "nailed it" to every team in the league. Every single one.

Leaving the West, after being the long-standing sheriff of the conference, that's unique to the Wings and could be one of the more memorable themes in recent years. I think it was a stroke of brilliance by Doc Holiday.

Currently trying to get the text to pop more, but this would likely be the general template for that theme.

looking to next year, we could also maybe play on Fievel Goes West, except East obviously.

and have funny ones about our team not understanding Eastern Conference etiquette

we dont have heavyweights, so there is one of John Scott or Colton Orr, or whoever, and then a pic of one of our guys asking "you play HOCKEY?!" or something like that.

one making fun of players diving in the East, like a picture of Stralman/ Stamkos from the last few nights on the ice, or Kovalev in a habs jersey when Glen Murray slashed him then went in and scored, etc. and then maybe an edited picture of our guys on the ice asking "hey am i doing this right?"

something like that, kind of poking fun at the eastern conference, and us being the new guy.

This about sums it up for me as well. That was a pretty good idea Doc
