**** the jinx. If the Rangers can't make the playoffs over ****ing Winni-meh, that's their fault.

"You cannot pass!" is the books. "Shall not" is movies.

When you play the game of zones either you win, or you lose. There is no middle ground.

... Except the shootout.

I thought I'd just bump this thread. Is this a bad sign or does everyone want the LOTR theme?

Since I'm not into LOTR, I'll say I'm definitely a fan of the Stormtrooper idea.

"You cannot pass" is seriously the greatest reference of all time.

I like the theme but to be more fitting with grumpy cat, and the mood of the boards, it would make more sense like:

Line 1: Something positive the team does.

Line 2: Something negative or whiny in spite of it.

Example: "Henrik only allows one goal in win." "Should have been shutout."

"Nash scores GWG." "Should have been a hattrick."

"Brian Boyle is great at faceoffs." "Still sucks, trade him."

The problem here is I am having trouble thinking of enough positive things this team does.

I guess you could even do one line negative thoughts:

"This team can't score in a brothel."

"Henrik is an average goalie."

"First round exit incoming."

"The powerplay is putrid."

Might be easier that way.

I second Grumpy Cat. She's (I think it's a she) the perfect mascot of this season.

I love it. So should there be a vote between this and LOTR?

LOTR
Grumpy Cat
The System

Would probably include those 3 in the poll.

Edit: Nevermind, that works.
