How 'bout...

"Mission: 16W"

The ultimate prize is awarded to the team that gets 16 victories in the postseason...therefore..."Mission: 16W" is winning the Cup.

BTW, if he isn't claimed already...I'd like to use one of Weber.

Good point.

Still haven't got your dibs on who you want.

Pretty straightforward, I like it. Added it to the list, and you've got Weber!

I'll take Forsberg or Poile (Poile if we're allowed to have non-players).

Erat.

And I vote for not using 16W. See: Colorado Avalanche circa Ray Bourque.

How about:

Determined.

As a reference to both the writing on the wall above the exit from the lockerroom..as well as a policy I hope is adhered to:

"NO EXCUSES"

Or maybe a simple, "Please don't move us to KC or Winnipeg"

Poile it is. I say we allow non-players as well, Poile/Trotz/etc.

NO EXCUSES added to the list.

So far of all the sayings I like that one the best. It's part of the team mantra as well as we honestly have no excuses this season not to do well.

Hey, I just wanted to mention that the Sabres use "no excuses" as their slogan in the locker room (or so I heard on a TV broadcast once of a Sabres game) so if that's the case, you might get a hard time from them.

Just thought I'd let you know since we're like... allies, or something.

Eff them, we had it first, and as long as they don't use it for the avatar...who cares?

So...is No Excuses okay with everyone?

I guess I"ll make a player claim while I can...I'll take Hartnell(obviously we're going to end up having some people using the same player, but whatever)

So that's step 1 and 2...step 3...design\implementation, which is where we hit a roadblock last year. I have Photoshop, and I have no idea how to use it to do anything other than resize and touch up pictures...but if someone wants to design something...and then instruct me on how to duplicate the design, I'll be happy to help put together the avatars.

My first sticky, yay!

I like No Excuses the best, as of now I'm bolding it and putting it as the front runner unless there is a lot of opposition.

And NMK gets Hartnell as well.

No Excuses it is. Unless there's a surge of votes against it within the next day or so.

I have a photoshop-esque program.

Any ideas?

Honestly I say we just let people pick one of the players, use the motto and try something.

We need a timeline, maybe give people a deadline of 3-4 days from now to get something done. Then we vote on which theme we like best, and go from there, how does that sound?

it doesn't have to be too fancy, just something with like, "PREDS 2007:" somewhere,
and "NO EXCUSES" somewhere else, incorporating a cool font and team colors...maybe some cool framing, whatever.

I really SEE what I'd like, I just have no idea how to make it.

Write a jingle about it that someone else could listen to and make it a reality
