I think I like reminding everybody on HFboards that our team has 21 straight years in the playoffs.

I never expect you to, Bob. Like I said earlier, I read OP and just posted the first thing that popped into my head. It's clearly a horrible idea. Thanks.

April 4th, 1991. Was against St. Louis, and the Blues won the series in 7 games.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_Stanley_Cup_playoffs

And I just realized he already had that DOB in the photo. WHOOSH, Bench, whooosh.

Yeah that would be outstanding. Really like the DOB and the LEGAL TO DRINK part. You're off to a great start Doc.

You know, if there are any black aces. They have to have fake ID's

Spitballin' format ideas.

Frame 1
Player photo: Lidstrom. Caption reads, "Nick's drink of choice?"

Frame 2
Drink picture: Captain Morgan (Lidstrom). Caption reads, "Legendary times."

Frame 3
Red Wings: Old enough to drink.

Frame 1
Datsyuk. "Pavel's drink of choice?"
Frame 2
Russian Standard "He set the standard."

Etc.

I'd feel bad for missing it, but I didn't know the date in the first place.

This could work. Would have to make it clear while reducing the amount of frames.

Possibly a little long, but a good idea.

Could do 1st MIP, 2nd MIP etc over the drinking pics for each of the cup wins, and then end with the drivers license

Would Helm's favorite be Bud Light? You know, with the catch phrase of "here we go"?

For the mug shot idea, you can use their yearbook pictures from this year. Only one you wouldn't have is Quincy.

Really? Miller Lite...not high life.

Actually have a signed Red Wings Miller Lite can signed by him. He loved it and said he never signed one before.

If you do go with something like that, and the brands, you can do grey goose for Nyquist.
