FYI, I did the playoff avatars last year and I struggled to get below the size limit with 4 slides. Don't think the 8 slides will work.

I can't photoshop, tried and failed, but is it possible to have more than one version of the avatar?

Slide 1 = done
Slide 2 = Hitch
Slide 3 = Rotate between Backes/Polak/JBo/Petro/etc. with their grouping names?
Slide 4 = end credits?? with Elliott or the Allen save, or even Louie

I think varieties would work well, provided folks who have photoshop skills were into doing it.

I like the 29 year old virgin too, considering it's an immensely quotable movie and we can make several funny avatars. I like the idea of having several different avatars of the same theme (I'll help if needed).

I'm sure something could also be done with the Blues as 46 Year-Old Virgins, Stanley Cup wise. Just to make it about the whole team, not just Bouw.

A couple ideas:

- Something with Backes and the "Cap'n" license plate from Jesse Pinkman's care in the first season. I didn't find a good image on the first pass, but maybe someone else has better luck.

- Berglund and the "Have you seen this man" posters.

Just wanted to say, if there is enthusiasm for (and more importantly if someone with the skills to do them is up for it) I don't see any reason we can't support two parallel themes (Breaking Bad and 40-year old virgin). I kind of like them both, but I'm more partial to the humor.

Don't see the point of doing two themes that have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Just stick with one, and then we have good ideas lined up for the next couple years it seems like.

These are good. I assume this means you're up to episode 3 at least.

I hear Austin Power's demanding, "WHO DOES NUMBER TWO WORK FOR?!" when I see this one.

Are we putting this to a vote? I can make the BB avatars on Sunday, but that is the only day in which I will have enough time until next weekend.

Hey blues fans! Jets fan here. I'll be hopping on the blues bandwagon for this years playoffs !

I don't really know much about your team so forgive me for that; but I like the blues because My favorite color is blue?

Anyways, we'll be division rivals starting NEXT season. So allow me to be a fan of your team for just a month or two.

Thanks

Yeah, I think we need a poll. If no one starts one by this time tomorrow, I'll do it up.

That said, I'm still a little hesitant about the BB avatars. It looks like they're going to end up similar to Detroit's playoff avvys last season (The Winning Elements).

No offense, but Canuck fans who'd gladly sell out the Blues (http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...9&postcount=89) probably shouldn't be doing polls on our boards.

Ooh, smells like a witch hunt.

1. The thread question was would you accept a million dollars for the franchise to fold.

2. The answer was a joke.

The Red Wings did a thing four years ago, not last year, and it had nothing to do with Breaking Bad. They made up "elements" with player numbers and gave them made up element names. No Breaking Bad reference at all. Not the same concept.

It just seemed odd to me that a guy who basically never posts on our boards, is a Canuck fan, comes in, says he doesn't like the idea based on a false claim, and volunteers to do a poll about what Blues fans should do for their playoff avatars.

We need to decide on what we're going to do. The playoffs start next Tuesday. At this point I am for BB, we have some of the pictures and ideas down for the theme.

BlueNote57, if you do some Breaking Bad avatars tomorrow when you have time, it'll be exceptional.

(Would be hilarious to see various Blues players balded and goateed like Walter White)

Is where I "borrowed" the idea.

For Slide #2

Here is Polak, Oshie & Backes. Oshie is definitely rough, but its a work in progress.

They will all look similar when complete. Bed time.

Hi everyone,

If/when you guys decide on a final theme or themes, I'd really appreciate it if someone posted a couple of samples and a description of the theme(s) in the playoff avatar showcase thread that was made on the playoff board, here:

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1414765

Want to give all the fantastic creative teams on all 16 playoff teams the opportunity to show their wares and get recognition for their work.

Thanks.
