Whatever we decide, I want Matt Cullen. His name begs for a Twilight riff.

How about a 3 blind mice theme. One slide an empty net with a do not enter circle and the second slide the Preds players with Ray charles sunglasses and a white cane instead of a stick.

I mean come on that is pretty damn funny considering people complaining about your scoring issues on the roster.
ugh... it think it would be pretty bad karma to use an avatar suggested by a poster who is not only not a preds fan but can be pretty derisive to downright insulting of our team... i mean, what... cant we get a hawks fan to design our avatar??

First image: The Nashville Predators (or representative image) Captioned –“No Goals? We’ve Got Goals!”

Second image: Player.

Third Image: “My 2013-2014 Goals” followed with players personal goals – which can go in whatever direction you want. I’m not sure how much text you can get on an avatar page.

Examples I thought of:

Weber
1. Win Norris Trophy (crossed out - couldn't figure out how to do it here)
Still in Nashville, hmmm . . .
1. Complete Norris Trophy runner-up hat trick

Clune
1. No bad words 99.9% of the time. (stealing from his twitter)

Filip Forsberg
1. Graduate from high school (add check mark)
2. Pass driver’s test

Mattias Ekholm
1. Don’t be “absolutely horrible”

Obviously, the overall idea is their idea of “goals” isn’t even “the goals” we want more of. While also getting to have fun with the “My goals” list. Like PredsV82 said about one of his earlier ideas - it might take time because of the personalizing, but the season is still a bit far off.
I really like this concept!

If you guys don't take this concept, I'm stealing it for the Jackets. This is brilliant.

Text limitations may restrict it to one listed "goal" each. With the possibility for more if you can get sponsor-sized avatars (150x150 instead of 125x125 if you're a HFBoards sponsor).

Also, I think it'd work best with the player image being first (followed by the list of goals, then having "no goals? we've got goals!" as a punchline third image) - and try to get player images that have them looking pensive or thoughtful.

To try to make one that fits this latest idea, I used Weber for an example. As it has been said by others, it is hard to get too much on the goals slide, but I did get 2. This is just a rough draft I put together. Should we include the player's name and number on the player slide?

Maybe simplify the "Goals" slide to "Goals? We've got goals..."

Look great! Question having two goals on the third slide though. Maybe vary the "Goal" depending on the avatar to customize player's for multiple people?

I would like to see one with the player number in the avatar just to see how it fits.

Appreciate the design work!

I have added the name and number.

Should we only do 1 goal? Since Goals (as in goal scoring) is plural I thought it would sound better with more than 1 but I can drop it down to one and make the Goal slide say "My 2013-2014 Goal:" then list the one goal but if it is Goals as in "Team Goals", I can see how it would fit.

Yeah, no. Moving from my iPhone to my iPad the goals don't look as cramped on the screen. Just gotta make sure they aren't too wordy. I do like the name and number bar and location.

Great. Thanks. If there are anymore suggestions, just let me know.

I have the slides set as first 2 ( Preds logo, and Player) at 3 seconds. and the Goals is at 5 seconds. Is that too short for the Goals?


If people want to throw in some goals for players I can put some together to see how they all look, if this look is ok.

Legwands has to be something like "finally live up to draft position" or "stop sucking"

That looks great! (Though I still say the second goal needs to be "stop sucking" or bette yet, "stop sucking, start ruling"... an homage to the fact that for quite some time pretty much every thread would eventually devolve into an argument among the legwand sucks vs legwand rules posters

Oh and somehow we need one for Poile

Goals:1. Fianlly spend to cap 2. Spend it all on 4th line

Because yours were short, I added "Bench the Youth" because that seems like his favorite thing to do.
