Picture of Nash: "Rick Nash is a superstar player who..."
Picture of Torts/Rock: "IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO RICK NASH IS! GET TO THE BOARDS!"

"The Torts doesn't care about potential I'll ride Krieder's candy ass up and down the bench."

It was supposed to me in all caps, damn it.

He'll be picking thorns out of his candyass!

My idea was to do a player and what they are good at, then Torts giving the "It doesn't matter..." line and saying "Get to the boards" because that's our bread and butter.

We were the preseason darlings of the NHL. Everyone was picking the Rangers to succeed. We should do something along the lines of the reverse of the "started from the bottom, now we here" memes. We could be "started from the top and now we here". Being at the bottom of the playoff section and playing off the failure of the team to live up to what was supposed to be. Flash the playoff logo and there you go.

Maybe not very universal, but how about That 70's show? John Tortorella is Red Forman. It's uncanny. I keep getting this mental image of Sean Avery as Hyde being like, "it's his system, man. I say screw the system!" And then Torts as Red Forman saying, "how about I screw my foot up your ass?"

Haha, I gotta say... If/when we do make the playoffs I'm all for the Torts style of avatars.

The decision on a theme needs to start prior to a playoff lock. If you are superstitious you can come back later.

I'm not a LOTR fan, but I don't mind if you guys want to do it. But whoever that hairy guy is in the avatar, the Islanders board already has some hairy monkey-looking person where they put players faces on it, so it would be a bit similar.

That's only one character in the whole spectrum, I see the resemblance, but I think it's fine personally, each avatar would be different anyways.

Oh, okay. I thought everyone would just have a player's face on that person, who is apparently "Gandalf."

As long as I get a Zuccarello one, then I'll be cool. Better than my damn Byron Bitz boiling avatar.

Precisely, you'll see avatars with guys like this.

So we're not doing that WoF thing?

What about like "What this team needs," and with it there's a logo of hard rock/metal bands:

Metallica
Megadeth
Slayer
AC/DC
Motorhead

Then, the next pic says "What this team has," and we can add a players face to one of these singers:

Nicki Minaj
Lady Gaga
Kelly Clarkson
Whatever ********* hipster singer is popular today

We're not necessarily doing or not doing anything at this point. Just brainstorming at the moment. Last year's theme was a last minute stroke of genius after pages of suggestions.

I'm in entirely on the Lord of the Rinks Avatar.

One with Hank looking at a puck with "You shall not pass!"

One of Nash's obscene highlight goals, with Stepan saying "That still only counts as one!"

One with Zucc "“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”

Cally "The men have found their Captain."

If we're playing Boston, a picture of Lucic and one of our guys remarking "They have a cave troll."

Hank getting his skates fixed up: Renewed shall be blade that was broken. The crownless again shall be king.

I can go on.
