Canucks 2012-13 Regular Season Avatars

Hey y'all,

So even though its a shortened season, I'm still willing to make us a new shiny set of Canucks avatars to use until playoffs.

But here's the question: what theme do we go with?

Do we revamp "Embrace the Hate"? Or do we go fresh and in a new direction? LEND ME YOUR IDEAS CANUCKS FANS I WILL CREATE THEM.

Thanks for doing this again!

Maybe somewhere along the lines of "window closing" or "over the hill"?

I'd rather hold off until the playoffs. Season is too short IMO.

Aren't the playoffs around the same length as the season this year? And that's if you get to the final.

I gotta agree. I also think having Regular Season ones kind of takes away from the playoff avatars specialness. ()

And by that I mean the banding together for the battle that is the post season.


but thats just me.....

FINE!
I have an idea for something, but it might be better suited for next season when a lot of our younger guys get a shot at making the team (due to cap reasons).

Something based around exaggerations of how good our prospects are.
Superstar prospects theme?

Corrado = Bobby Orr/Nicklas Lidstrom
Schroeder = Martin St. Louis
Eddie Lack = Henrik Lundqvist
etc...

Funny avatars > serious avatars

But like I said, it would probably be better to hold off on using that idea until next season when we cant afford to re-sign some UFAs and have to use rookies (Jensen, Lack, etc).

I still think it would work this year.

It'd be like a giant FU to Leafs fans who predict the Stardom of any prospect before they even play a game.

And you know how much we love to piss off the Leafs' fans.

I have to agree with that. Can we agree on a slogan for execution and who each prospect will be?

Kassian = Bertuzzi
Jensen = ??
Schroeder = MSL
Corrado = Bobby Orr
Connauton = ???
Lack = Henrik Lundqvist
Cannata = Roy? Hasek? Brodeur?
Gaunce = Jordan Staal?
Tanev = ??
Rodin = ??

Should we poke fun and make Hodgson something like Stefan or Daigle or something? Or is that too far?

We have to take it to the extreme.

Kassian = Cam Neely
Lack = Hasek
Cannata = Roy
Corrado = Bobby Orr
Tanev = Lidstrom

I seem to remember that we weren't allowed to put other team's players in our avatars.

I was thinking everyone seems to think we are "over the hill". So maybe we could compare our players now to players from our past.

Luongo - Kirk McLean
Schneider - Corey Hirsch
Bieksa - Harold Snepsts
Garrison - Garth Butcher
Ballard - Dana Murzyn
Burrows - Dennis Ververgaert
Kesler - Dan Woodley
Kassian - Jim Sandlak

and so on and so forth
