Sounds about right. But I might go with a scenario/statement for slide 1 that has actually happened instead of some hypothetical (it seemed like you were going in that direction - correct me if I'm wrong), and make it into a question -- i.e.:


- Brad Richards gets his first career hat trick?

- Rangers trade 40-goal sniper, Marian Gaborik, for a 3C and improve?

- Derek Stepan is our 1C?

- Rick Nash comes to Rangers' offensive blackhole system and becomes a point per game player?

- Rangers actually won a game against the Penguins this year?

- Ryane Clowe, goal-less 28 games before coming to the Rangers; in his first game with NYR, scores 2 goals?

- Mats Zuccarello is 5 foot 7 inches, and plays in the NHL?

- John Moore comes to the Rangers and gets in first career fight?

- Darroll Powe plays 42 games and has zero points?

- Michael Del Zotto hits the net?

- Brian Boyle on the power play?


...good healthy mix of optimistic stuff, self deprecating material, and some sarcasm, etc. Then obviously continue with your template. Slide 2: "Anything can happen." Slide 3: Playoff graphic.

I like these a lot. This is the kind of funny stuff that I wasn't coming up with. Great call on things that have already happened as opposed to hypotheticals.

Except for Savard having a more oval-shaped head, they look pretty much the same.

Can someone make a ACH for me with Stu Bickel hoisting the Conn Smythe? I'd do it myself but the thought of paying for Photoshop just to make a playoff avy is making me feel bad.

I'm still trying to find a still of Torts laughing at the presser after the Devils game. Once I get it, I think I'd like "Torts is happy?" "Anything Can Happen."

I don't know. If no one else is supposed to make them I guess I can do it.
Everyone needs to agree on what style/theme to use though.
And are we gonna have a caption before Anything Can Happen! like "Michael Del Zotto hit the net?" "Stu Bickel winning the Conn Smythe?" etc.

Yeah the 1st slide would be our own pics plus captions, then the 2nd and 3rd slides would be what you gave us with Bickel, anything can happen, and the playoff logo.

I think we have a consensus. If you're willing to do it, then we move right ahead
