How about the Cardiac Kids? It was also the nickname of the 1980 Phils. (World Champions)

Or maybe we could use the Toews terrified face and just make variations of it for each player

Avatars based around all the dumb **** that the beat writers were spewing at the beginning of the year would be funny.

I said it before and I'll say it again, because today it has come true...

"I got my first playoff berth today!"



I think we should just do a "theme" based off of all the commercials that get overplayed during Flyers games over the years. You have "Latino Paycheck" Wells Fargo, Start the Party feat. Pitbull. Okay, maybe we only have 2, but they're gold, Jerry, gold.

It'll be a theme that no one else gets, but it'd be hilarious to us.

I will issue an executive edict and permanently ban any references or images to Flo.

Didn't people say Jan, the Toyota girl, was hotter anyway?

Which brings to my next idea for a playoff avy that goes with this theme:

You think Jan the Toyota girl is hot? Have you seen Giroux lately? (hot as in, on fire, not that I wouldn't have a man crush on Giroux).

Something centered around Giroux's "We will make the playoffs"?

There were the infomercials that were good luck charms in some of the GDTs.

A variation on "Remember when we sucked?" is to put Flyers in black-and-white disaster scenes, then them succeeding.

Yep yep. The Hindenburg crash turns into a Luke Schenn spin-o-rama because they're equally as disastrous

I like this. From our terrible start and all our third period comebacks I think it makes a lot of sense to do something around that.

Best one I have heard yet.


Really captures the story of the season (yeah we sucked, and we had a ton of 3rd period comebacks).


Could use a picture of the titanic in black and white and then someone scoring a GWG as an example .

I think we should just go simple. Let's "unite" so to speak and all just rock zoomed in pictures of Toews' face. Maybe a horror movie title with it like...

#Couturinado

Coming April 2014

I'm not really a fan of gif avatars, they look tacky.

Also scrolling through the Blues board now that they all have their playoff gifs comes slightly short of giving me an epileptic seizure haha

Django Unchained image with one of the players on it to start followed up by horrified Toews with Coming April 2014.

Or just the players faces on general movie bad guys. Like Emperor Snider shooting some lightening so we can get a SW reference in there lol.

Just an FYI people, it looks like the Penguins board might be doing Star Wars of some kind. Can't under any circumstances have a similar one to those people.

What about a "Not Good Enough For Canada" theme?

Giroux? Not Good Enough For Canada.
Coots' Beard? Not Good Enough For Canada
