Listen to the words of wisdom from the great old fermented grain beverage #7.

This is not about the bruins, this is about the Habs. I'd never sport a diving avatar concept with a Habs player on it.

Have some pride.

For the diving one you can choose whatever picture you want to replace Clode.... It's supposed to be take with a grain of salt. We're not seriously saying we dive. It's like the "But can he fight" we did a few years ago, we weren't saying they can't actually fight, of the we did the "Le ..." We weren't actually giving importance to the who language thing, it's supposed to be funny.

I thought the whole 'whining is coming' was in reference to all the whining about the Habs we are sure to hear come playoff time.

Really, you guys want to put Bruin faces on the Habs Playoff Avatar? Are you guys secretly obsessed with them?

PATHETIC

Nice to see some posters with post-elementary-school reading abilities

My two cents: "Dive" is being "ironic" I guess but meh, we have a proud franchise I don't think we have to sink to that. Also agree I would not want broons players / staff on our Habs avatar. And seems I am the one guy here with no clue about Game of Thrones...

All I got is a total turtlenecking, starts w/ Plex; then a turtleneck descends over the Bell Centre; then Earth itself gets turtlenecked. So you can see why I didn't suggest anything

You can't write turtleneck without turtle. Broons/Laffs fans will be all over us

Not a jab at you personally, JLP, but aren't we taking all of this a bit too seriously? By 'we', I mean us Habs fans on this board, not the we you just used and many fans use when referring to the actual team. WE are not Canadiens de Montréal. WE don't have a record of 26 - 10 -5 this year. WE didn't get creamed by Toronto last night. Unless some posters here were actually on the ice at the ACC yesterday?

As the Chosen One/misbegotten child (yeah, ******* is censored) once said:

CHILL!!!

Given the unhealthy, borderline psychotic vibe on this board lately, an ironic/sarcastic/irreverent/classless/pathetic (duh) avatar might just be what the doctor ordered.

Don't agree? Well, you're in total denial then

No worries, I think everyone gets the irony in 'whining is coming' and 'dive for 25'. It's actually quite funny.

But these are inside jokes. Inside jokes are annoying when you're not in the group. If I'm a Chicago fan and I see an Habs avatar with 'whining is coming', I probably won't get it. Same with 'Dive for 25', which could also backfire. And both sort of relate to the Bruins, whom we may not even face.

The Habs had a fantastic comeback year so far. A related concept (Habbits, New Hope) will be clear to everybody, including non Habs fans on HFBoards.

In all honesty, I have to say that this is probably the best post you have ever made on this forum.

Great post and I agree with that sentiment.

Voted for Feels good man. The concept could use some work(No offense to the shopper, you're 3290903290329032099032093 times better than me.) but the theme is awesome. We had a crappy year and now we're(As in us fans of the team AND the team itself) having a great season.

Totally agree and I'm not offended at all. I wish someone more experienced/talented would redo the thing. It might sells better.

If its within my limited ability, I may be able to improve the end results. Just post detailled comments on what doesn't work on any suggestions and I'll give the concept another go.

EDIT : Let's wait till the Meister is done!

I think yours would look really good with a third panel showing the playoffs logo. Pictures from players while they're playing would look better too.
