If it is alright with you guys I will be the one taking charge of the avatars this year.

Shoalz gracefully retired and asked if I could help out, so I'll probably start taking care of the actual busywork leading up to the post-season.

You do the Hockey Gods' work.

I like the Walking Red.

As far as the "old enough to drink" theme, we should relate it to drinking jokes, names of mixed drinks, and crazy drunk stories.

"I remember my first beer."
"I remember my first dangle."
"I was so drunk, I scored more goals than their entire team" (referencing Franzen's 2008 playoff round where he scored 9 goals against the Avs)
"Dude, where's my cup?" (picture of a perplexed Lidstrom)

Not sure if this breaks any rules, but could give people a lot of leeway with ideas.

Maybe give each player a brand.



There's Svedka and Absolut for the Swedes.
Smirnoff for the Russian - there's even an "Ice" branding.
Abdelkader? Bell's Brewery. Ab-Bell-kader? Ha, that's bad.
Ohh, duo one... White Russian! White-Dats.
Top shelf brands are dying for a pun.

Just spitballin'

Dang, Bench is going to town!

I like the streak being old enough to drink.
I really like Imported from Detroit given how Euro-centric we are.

Lots of good options!

I'm not the greatest at creating graphics but if you do get something together I'd be happy to help you assemble the GIF files from the various parts.

I quite like The Walking Red idea could kinda go either way, the Red Wings are an unstoppable monster or everyone else is the mindless hordes.

And players as the different "flavors".
This one has to keep them short, like Franzen : "I tried for ten!"

This has to be in. 4 "Next rounds on Quincey" coming up!

All hail to the king

And this way, I can get my slogan in somehow too

I like this, and I'd also like to say thanks for taking on the responsibility of making the avatars.

HAHA love that pic.

For Datsyuk it would have to be Russian Standard(cuz he sets it) and I love the artwork on the label. Pavel Standard?

The swedes could be different variations of absolut.

Found this randomly:

Theres a connection between Bertuzzi and Sleemans(Guelph), first he toasted Naslund with a sleemans.....then he brought a friend who works at the brewery on the fathers trip lol.

What about something along the lines of "What, is/does (person) (too/have) (action) (too much) for you?"

Then a frame of the person in question

Then a frame of the playoff crest or whatever

Hudler: Small/slow/whatever
Franzen: Lazy/streaky/whatever
Datsyuk: Magical/elusive/whatever
Lidstrom: Perfect/ageless/whatever
Holland: Boring/useless/whatever
Bertuzzi: Evil/(too)many bad penalties/whatever
Babcock: Death Stare/wear a fedora/bench your ass/whatever
Quincey: Get waived/require too many picks/whatever

etc...

Lots of great ideas with the streak being old enough to drink! I remember there is some brewery Pavs mentioned and he joked about mentioning it in an interview and how maybe they'd pay him for the endorsement. I have no recollection of the name though. Someone on here might know what I'm talking about.

I guess I'd be the one who'd get the Ericsson avatar.

Pavel/Michael Jackson - Moves like Pavel.
Lidstrom/Seger - Some things never get old.

Just some off the top of my head, I'm sure it can be improved.

Something having to do with the streak or the dominance at home would be great too. I like where OP is going.
I have never agreed with one of your posts.
Ever.
