Playoff Avatars Poll

Alright guys, the main thread about the playoff avatars has given fruit to a bunch of awesome ideas, great job to everyone for coming up with them and to the 'shoopers () for giving us examples for most of them.

Many in that thread suggested we start a poll to decide which theme we'll be going with, to give the guys preparing the avatars time to do them before the playoffs begin.

I looked back through the last few pages of the thread to see which theme came back often. So here they are, please, if you vote for "Other" specify in the thread which theme you want to go with.

Dive for 25


post other options to be added to OP

Hesitating between the Dive for 25 and the Game of Thrones...

Chose Game of Thrones :p Could also be "Diving is coming" if people don't want "whining is coming"...

I like GoT theme a lot but chose Dive because it's funny and has drive hidden in there.

Went with Dive. As much as I like some of the others it's probably the best. It doesn't disclude anyone and has the potential to be classic.

What's the story with the Habs this year?

'The Habbits' and 'A New Hope' both summarize very well what happened with the Habs.

Posters from other boards will understand the theme right away.

'Dive for 25' and 'Whining is coming'... nice, but a little convoluted. Are we the divers? The whiners? No! So what are we referring to??

Not sure I fully understand the Dive for 25 concept (might be a language thing as I'm a francophone).

Is there more in it than a reference to the Bruins incident?

Visually, what potential variants do you see for the avys, beyond Julien, Chara, Thornton, Marchand or the eventual scuba diver?

And what if one of our player do dive in a tight playoff game or worst, pulls a Ribeiro?

I'm not against it, I'm just not sure I get it.

"Drive for 25" = la course pour la 25e.

"Dive" is just a play on "Drive".

Maybe we shouldn't acknowledge the erroneous image that we dive or legitimize the bruins by sporting avatars proclaiming we dive and whine??

Have some pride....

I'm gonna give my koala a Habs Hawaiian tshirt.

As mentioned in the other thread, a phoenix would be a great symbol. We were a rotten old carcass last season and we have risen from the ashes indeed.

Yeah, the 'Dive for 25' could easily backfire.

Just one dubious dive by a Habs and we'd be forever called divers apologists.

And how do you put a Habs player on an avatar that says 'Dive for 25'?

The avatars should be about the Habs, their story this year etc.

I hate the idea of associating ourselves with diving or whining. Where is our proud heritage? Let's not bring ourselves down to their level.

After seeing the work in the other thread, a Star Wars theme/A New Hope would be awesome, and that is definitely my vote.
