^ Out of the pics for peaking early, I like those the best except like you said. The other Hawks logo slides I'm not a big fan of.

Mobster theme..

I think it either has to tie in with Chicago or something related to the team specifically. That's why I liked cap hell, ect. Peaking early is good, I just don't think we have a catchy enough animation yet.

Teams win the president's trophy every year so I'm not a huge fan or that one. Just change the Indian drinking side and the feathers slide. You probably don't need both.

If we're going with the peak too early theme why not have the "peak too early" part on the slide with the logo and the second or third slide something specific about a player with a picture. Like for example:

Stalberg - peaks at the wrong times (scoring against columbus)
Toews - machines/cyborgs never peak (picture of robot toews)
The PK - premature peakulation (being scored on)
Kane - Everyday I'm peaking or something about a Whiskey peak (pic of him loaded)
Eddie O - can't stop it right there (a pic of him looking like he just made a mess or something)
Q's mustache - Mustache rides (pic of a distinguished, yet bad boy looking mustache)
Bollig/frolik - No worries I never peak (cause he doesn't score or can't shoot respectively, pic of them looking sad or falling down)
Hossa - With performance enhancing drugs I'm always peaking (looking happy or something)
Bolland - Peaks not at all "Not tonight honey, bad back" (hunched over and grimacing)
The PP - Two pump chump (looking ashamed)

I like this Stanley Cup Playoffs slide the best. Might add 2013. The background and colors are great.

Not a big fan of the official Stanley Cup Playoff logo for the others posted samples. Looks cookie cutterish.

They can only be like 3 words, other wise text is too small. Kane's pic has to be the cinco drunk pic. Lol

You guys decide on the slides. I'm not putting work in unless we have a consensus.

Also had an idea of using a peaking graph as the first slide of animated gifs, with the hawks logo on there somewhere. Like below except better and readable once resized (I know it's too big just using it as example).

Toews' has to be:

"Intangibles Never Peak"

we need 1 idea and then apply that across the board, not just use the word peak and change the meaning for each player. There's no continuity in that idea.

I think we should play up the asterisk trash that's over the main boards. Something like "Asterisks only matter when you lose" or something along those lines.

Toews - Toews has Hart*

Saad - Makes rookies Saad*

Crow - Jennings? The butler?*

Hammer - All +, no -*

Stalberg - All tools, now a toolbox*



Just some ideas.

Did anyone save all the batman ones from last year or know what happened to the old playoff avatar thread? maybe we could just re-use those.

otherwise, I liked the "win it for minny" suggestion...and maybe we can do something different next round.

I think it would be better to just have none than use last years. I'll probably just turn my avatar in to one,

could these be reconfigured so the caption on the first slide says "I never peak early" and the slide w/ the indian head drinking from the cup is replaced with a slide w/ the stanley cup playoffs logo?

then i might use one.

The Nucks avatars are actually really well done.

The Wild are doing "So you're saying there's a chance"

Maybe we can do grumpy cat and just do No.
