The playoff-less streak ending is absolutely the biggest Leafs storyline, at the moment.
I was thinking about not posting it because I kind of felt the same way, but I thought the idea of "Insanity is doing the same ****ing thing over and over again, expecting **** to change" was totally applicable to the Leafs in general during the drought period.

FWIW I voted for she's too young for you bro (not gonna vote for myself) because I think you could also have some fun with that. I'm struggling to come up with examples though.

Personally I think the top two are both good. But I feel like the 'last time we were in the playoffs' one is to generic, and could be used for other teams.

The Burn the Boats one is so much more personal and literally it can only apply to the leafs. Just my opinion

I think Burn the Boats is too original and meaningful to pass up.

I figure, whatever the Avatar theme is, we can still include the "Burn the Boats" slogan at the end.

-Last time the Leafs were in the playoffs
-We had 5 future hall-of-famers
-Maple Leafs Playoffs 2013: Burn The Boats!

-Reimer as a starting goalie?
-Did I Ever Tell You the Definition of Insanity?
-Maple Leafs Playoffs 2013: Burn The Boats!

-Isn't This Brian Burke's Team?
-Burke/Batman: "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain."
-Maple Leafs Playoffs 2013: Burn The Boats!

I think this is where we can be creative and poke a little fun at ourselves. I'm thinking it doesn't even have to be real. Example: Last time we were in the playoffs, Michael Jackson was still black/Twitter was something a bird did/The Winnipeg Jets were still in their first version/etc

I think the Burn the Boats should be a collaboration with the Last time the Leafs made the playoffs....

Either

BURN ALL THE BOATS
- With leaf players on different iconic boats (Batboat, Lonely Island Boat, SS Anne etc....)

or

Embrace The Insanity

If that option was here earlier I would of voted for it.

Burn the boats is in the lead! I like that, because it's also the team's motto and they have it written in the dressing room.

Btw, a bit of trivia for some of the old timers here. 1 person is still rocking the last avatars we used for our last playoff birth. Yeah, i know it's crazy that some of us where here when the leafs last made it to the playoffs and were posting in the playoffs GDT... a decade ago

who is that person?

They're using a variation of the idea that they specifically asked for. I should look in my archives and try to find some of the originals.

If we do go with "Burn the boats" I want Ralph Wiggum's "He told me to burn things!" being incorporated into one of them:



Simpsons fans will get this.

If I had to guess I would say Leaf Lander. Because his start date fits. Just a guess I'm new so I have no clue what the significance behind Thanks Clark would be in 2004.

Love this discussion. Its like 9 years of ideas are streaming out.

The "last time Leafs were in the playoffs" can really be used in a lot of different ways for the large number of users we have on the Leafs board. And it doesn't even have to be something factually 9 years ago. We can have the Wright Brothers plane, Alexander Graham Bell, etc. as the middle frame.

ok. you guys, it's time to make some drafts. If you like other ideas, make a quick gif. I think we can have a few different kinds of avies.

here's a quick one i made. what do you guys think of something like this for the burn the boats idea? i'm really not good at this frame by frame telling story type of avatar. I'm more in to small animation types like the one i'm using now. The last one we used, I animated the logo on the leafs jersies to pulsate like a heart. Garbs here wanted the C on Sundin's jersey to pulse. But the original ones had the logo on the front pulse like a heart. That's the type of thing I personally like.

I think some of you that are good at avatar making should jump right in and just make a few for us to see.

here's a quick one.



also to give you an idea. here kinda what the old one looked like.

I like "Center of the Universe" captioning an avatar of a Leafs player.
