Or maybe we'll have two -- one for the Bylsma Disciples and one for the wrist slitters.
I actually kind of hope the board adopts a Bylsma theme.

10 seconds on this board will give away that winner.

Yah I can see the argument both ways. Bylsma would be more in keeping with who we are as a board, something around Olli would be more rah-rah (as an example). You're probably right though; seems this is Dan's Year to be lambasted.

Here's another random Disco Theme idea:

"No Bronze, No Cup, No Job."

(Sort of like No Shirt, No Shoes, no service.)

Yeah but we'll look like royal ***** if we win the Cup which despite Bylsma I am still rooting for.

I remember some one coming up with the Country Club thing in the off season and there seemed to be a lot of room for creativity.

The Great Day for Hockey was still our best while the SOPO was the worst. We need another Great Day for Hockey. If I remember right that was they year we won the Cup.

There was also the We Are Family thing which yours truly posted the video for last June while all the CountryClub talk was going on, so they sort of go hand-in-hand (panels?) but not sure how that would fit in with a theme.


Here's another stream-of-consciousness idea: 3 panel black and white with faint, golden Disco (smug profile) in the background:

PLEASE

MAKE

ADJUSTMENTS

or

CHANGE

YOUR

PLANS

How about:

MAGIC ORPIK BALL

6 goals surrendered?

Forwards need to play better

0 goals scored?

Need better goal tending

basically go through a list of problems and then "blame someone else"

Well...I wouldn't.

But the country club thing could work on a few levels. I know a lot of people take it seriously, some people believe it's a few isolated man-crushes, and some people could just have a little tongue-in-cheek fun.

A "Where Are They Now?" freeze-frame postscript like at the end of Animal House:

"Evgeni Malkin slipped and broke his tailbone during a game of whiffleball"
etc.
I really don't want to be that team who is complaining in their avatars. Not only that, but I just don't think there is really any room for originality, just random injuries. Its not overly clever. Its not really funny. I am not a fan of random for the sake of random. I'm just as against an injury theme as I was last year. So much that if we adopt it, I will not use one.

another idea because the board is obsessed with re-posting the smug Bylsma picture: Bylsma photo-shopped as 'great' historical and fictional villains.

i reserve Byslma as Pol Pot.
I still like the penguins books idea. Its solid. Lots of room for variations. That's key.

Bylsma as historical and fictional figures could be good. If people can come up with the ideas, the premise is good. I don't think we need to lock it to villains though. I'm thinking of Disco giving some historical or fictional speeches.

This will always be my baby. Damn anti-intellectuals.



If we did something with villains I'd say keep it to fictional ones for something that people will see outside our board...real ones walk a thin line of decency. That and you know someone would want a Himmler Bylsma, and we're just not doing that.

Without a real solid idea beyond just the name - Arrested Development. Considering our coach seems to have about as much sense as Buster...

I liked the idea of Need a [insert thing here]? Why not... and if used I put a claim down on Zoidberg.

We are Family or The Penguins Country Club are both stellar.

they are good ideas. what would they actually look like? Would we all have the same things? Would we get to personalize them? Everyone having their own version of the theme is my favorite part of the whole thing and I don't know what we'd do for either of those ideas.

Bylsma doesn't understand/like

Line matching, lines, skill, youth, adapting, etc.
