And I, and a couple others, ditched the "Somebody Call 911" with 5 minutes to go in Game 2 with Montreal for the "It's going to take a miracle now" theme.

I may stick with that one again this year since it seems to fit even more this year.

How about an old time hockey card theme? It could be a gif with only one stat listed on the back of the card - like goon, rat, savior, mvp, etc...

That is an awesome looking throwback card! It has that old time hockey feel. Very slick!

I have a lot of time available tomorrow. I'll work on some more concepts. I'll definitely get one of the "Shanaban this..." ones done as I feel like that could be the best one possible.

Album covers/bands? Those could get silly...

I'd do Shanaban this! But I like making silly ones every so often.

Don't poke the bear.

one thing about the shanaban idea... I like the concept, what would the execution be like? In other words, what would the "shanaban this!" refer to? Would it be sarcastic, as in the outraged reaction of the HF masses to some minor thing a bruin did? Because I think this would be veeery similar to last year's 911, maybe too similar.

I really like this vintage card theme Brewin, great work. Thats my vote. Reeks of the "Big Bad Bruins" era.

We all know the Bruins are the big bullies on the NHL playground, some really mean pranksters. Remembering this, I've got this quick idea of some sort of punk'd theme, taking up memorable or polarizing moments of recent Bruins history.

This could be a 2-page gif avatar, one side showing the victim of the Big Bad Bruins, the other side showing the Bruin involved.

Some examples:

Luongo: Beachball'd / Sniped - vs. Stanley Cup Roster Picture/Goal scorers
Pacioretty: Stanchion'd - vs. Chara
H.Sedin: Punch'd - vs. Marchand
Miller: "Concuss"'d/ Fell'd - vs. Looch
Anderson: Sniped - vs. Seidenberg
Toronto Maple Leafs: Swept - any goal scoring bruin - preferably with a broom instead of a stick.
Calgary Flames: Fired/Flamed/Burnt
Sami Salo: "Low"Bridge'd - Marchand
van Ryn: Splinter'd - vs. Looch

Any fight where a Bruin has beaten up an opponent badly: punch'd or K.O.'d
examples: Looch vs. Gaustad, McQuaid vs. Torres

Just a suggestion here, but I think I saw some other board have a thread "time limit" for ideas.(pens maybe)
Once enough ideas are thrown out (maybe a couple more days?) this thread gets locked and the photoshop gurus put some mockups together in another thread with a poll and we all vote.


So far I think we have:

Breaking Bad

Vintage Card

Shanaban

Bullies

Villians

ASOIF; edited for correctness

QFT. Bought the first season on Blu-ray, then upgraded my cable package last night so I would have HBO for Season 2 in April. So good.

LoL just realized SOIF and Game of Thrones are the same thing (sorta).

Game of thrones is a great show!! Not sure how good of an avy it would make though.

I do have the perfect TV series theme for leafs fans though... American (Canadian) Horror Story.

I like these too. The execution of the prototype is nice (maybe minus the flyers orange bkgd - or with several alternates from a predefined pallette?). They'd be easy to produce from a template and have wide application (any player) and universal recognition (not limited to consumers of certain shows/books).
