I know, I know. We aren't yet a "lock" to make the playoffs, but if we do make it we will need a consistent theme.

My suggestion: Lowered Expectations, from the Mad TV skit.

Only the question would be "Can the Red Wings win without Nicklas Lidstrom?" and the follow up rhetorical question would be something like "Is Pavel Datsyuk Good at hockey?" or "Can Justin Abdelkader score a hat trick?"

Something around Tootoo and this (potentially) being the 22nd straight playoff appearance.

Tootoo for TwoTwo?

Well. If Detroit are able to qualify. I'll toss a few themes out there.

It's a "war" for the spots this year, so a theme around:

MEDIC!

How to cure the pain(there is only one cure)...STANLEY CUP 2013! (refering to man-games lost).

We found a cure! Stanley Cup 2013!

or, the other way around. Naming different team-familiar stuff that isn't the cure(Examples under): There is only one cure!

Trades is not the cure....Stanley Cup 2013! (Referring to Holland)
Overypaying is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013! (Filppula)
Lack of depth is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013! (Holland/Babcock)
Too much skilled forwards is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013! (Holland)
Missing Playoff-beast is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013! (Franzén/Zetterberg)
One-man Team is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013! (Datsyuk)
Lack of Magic is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013 (Datsyuk)
Benching Gritty Veteran is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013! (Cleary)
Injured Puck-hog is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013! (Samuelsson)
One-Way Hockey is not the cure...Stanley Cup 2013! (Datsyuk/Zetterberg)

And some other theme, I'm not to fund of, but it most likely would be funny.

THE BUNNY BOILER (Use the Red Wings-ladies, referring to ruining it for the other teams. If you don't know what this is, search for The Bunny Boiler - Balls of Steel on youtube, it's a TV-show).

Or

Some kind of this theme: Dry spell...because everyone has it sometime.

or

22 years in a row - our youth enthusiasm...Stanley Cup 2013!


Or some simpler ones:

13 unlucky for you, Lucky for us!

12 in 13'! "Cheaper by the Dozen".

Rookie Season - To whom much is given, much is expected.

22 in 13! Because Blackjack is too easy.

It has to be something around Catch 22.

There's a famous style established.



There's lots of jokes to be had from the "illogical conditions" set forth by the Wings in regards to the "impossible to attain" Stanley Cup. And it maintains itself as a nod to the playoff streak.

The only downfall it is potentially far less visual in nature than other options.

If we're to continue a movie them established by the brilliant FlashyG GDTs, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey might be a nice tongue in cheek way to reference how many folks thought the Wings would miss the playoffs.*

*Please don't jinx it.

Catch 22 was way too heady for a gif. I suck at this.

How about...
"No Nick, no problem."

Could be positive and negative (funny). Quincey in for Nick is high comedy.

I like dumb and dumber, too.
