How about a Virus themed avatar for the playoff push, then once we reach the playoffs (hopefully) we use something like: "Virus? Out with Concussion" and other catastrophic injuries (made up) with our players on them.
I can't remember if we discussed this in previous years, but how about
Now with (a number goes here) % more (something goes here)"
the possibilities are endless.
"now with 87% more rookies"
"now with 40% more concussions"
you could even do the opposite,
"now with 62% less goal tending" or
"now with 95% less cap space"
This was 100% done in the 2009 playoff. I know this because it was when we were rumor to be signing Matt Gilroy and I though it was going to be cool to have two Hobey Baker winners (Matt Carle). I had hoped to get what ever number Gilroy would use + 25 and used that number as x% Hobey Baker. But like an idiot he signed with the Rangers so it never happened.
