Did they? If so, let's not do that then.

I still say NWO theme but that seems to be a no go, I have zero interest in the Muppets theme so a compromise?

What about Kings players faces on a grey background with HEEL like this shirt?

Forgive me if I'm ignorant, but what does HEEL mean in this context? I like the look though.

After reading the other thread, we could also do something with "Regression to the mean"

Would also be hilarious, but Ducks beat us to that with "unsustainable" last year

Villains are fine as long as it a not just from horror films. It was either the Ducks or Preds fans who did it three years ago. I'm pretty sure it was the Ducks though.

Maybe we could keep it to comic book villains?

Game of Thrones + maximum trolling of the main boards ...

1. Kings player doing something classless/dirty/cowardly
2. Lysa Arynn: "You don't fight with honor"
3. Kings player: "No, but we win"

That looks really cool. Now imagine Dustin "knee seeking missile" Two Face Brown taking out Hertl, then Dustin "crime fighting hero" Brown scoring the GWG against any team that hates him (pretty much every team).

Great job with the photo shop RP. If we go this route, I'll even take Muzzin as he is a villain many times to so many around here.

Heel is another word for villian that began in professional wrestling and has become a slang term for bad guys or evil characters. Heels (or rudos) are the bad guys that break rules and do despicable things to get the crowd to hate them, while Faces (or technicos) are the good guys that the crowd wants to see win matches and cheers for.
In the pic I posted it's basically jsut saying Vader was a heel or bad guy.

I still think the NWO theme is perfect but it seemed like there was about 3-5 of us on board with it. The reaction to it was strange considering we've used wrestling avatars before. I think it was 2009 or 2010 we used old-school 80s guys for the playoffs.

A little different but the Canucks did a Revengers theme using the heros form the Avengers for 2012... So it'd be close to that if we went that route.

I say embrace the hate and roll with the villains theme. If the Ducks did the horror character theme previously, then:

1. They most likely did it poorly.

2. Horror movie characters and villains are two totally different things, but with some crossover.

That Carter one is an awesome example of how cool it could be, far as I know the Batman franchise isn't horror-based....

Just draw some snidely whiplash mustaches on everyone, add black hats, and we're done.

Or, LA King in the foreground, other team's player / mascot tied to railroad tracks in the background.

Or swap the player in the foreground with a train bearing down on the tied mascot/player as described, with a King's face superimposed on the train (like Thomas the Train).

I'm just spitballin' here

Bond villains can be good - though they need the right cues to be identifiable, i.e Oddjob's hat, Jaws' teeth, Le Chiffre's bloody tears. (Trevor Lewis with Dr. No's immobile iron hands). The more obscure ones can work (like the Korean dude with diamonds stuck in his face or whatever) if the biggies are there.
