We've never done a good avatar. We will lose game 1 and they'll all disappear anyhow.

Couldn't find any good pictures of Rechlicz in a Caps uniform but here's what I have so far with Rechlcz and his wooden stick and Aucoin and his long stick

I vote for "No realtion". There are other team who play trap (I believe StL is all over this topic), other underdogs... but nobody else has JoeB.

Made a bunch of No Relation ones. Don't have the skills to make anything more complex than this but these can be churned out relatively quickly.

I like the Ward one. May I? Or can you make a Joel Ward/Cam Ward one?

Also, a theme like this is not complete without one that somehow deals with the Karlson/Carlson no relation BS that Joe B beat like a dead horse.

I mean, if we wanted to go half assed.. the NHL's new playoff slogan is "Because it's the Cup", seems like a pretty easy opportunity for "Because it's the Caps"

Well, the whole point is that "no relation" is being reappropriated to concepts about the team's play and stuff like that, but those would be good advitars to have anyway.


@Brad Tolliver
Nice job. I don't think that's exactly where PuckBuddy was going but most of those are really well done.

This looks like the ad posters they use.


Potential ideas for 1st slides:
Ovechkin fat pic: "Loves McDonalds"
Semin: "Doesn't care"
Laich: "Never calls AAA"
Ward: "LOL Regular Season"
Hendricks: "More like Shoot-ins"

i'm never generating content though, so don't listen to me

I like general apathy and "Because it's the Caps". That's just asking for an Alex Semin "Because he cares." one. And maybe a drunk Ovi with something like "Because summer can't start soon enough."

Wait, when we vote apathy, are we voting for apathy-related avatars?

Because I was voting to be not be bothered enough to make avatars...

Centurion Green approves!

Isn't voting apathy kind of contradictory? To really embrace apathy, no votes should be cast.

This is the route I have taken. I like my avatar too much to change it for this lot.

I really like the "Because its the Caps" idea.

first slide- a picture of Green next to a picture of Wideman
text- "Because defense wins championships"

second slide- Weagle with the bag on its head (or the normal one)
text- "Because its the Caps"

third slide- Washington Capitals playoffs 2012.

Simple elegant funny.

Another idea

first slide- An old picture of Hunter
text- "because legacies are overrated"

same second and third slide

First slide- Ovechkin from a few years ago
text- "Because in Russia 30 is > 60"

etc.
