Playoff avatars

Guys.

This board needs to reignite its avatar game.

Remember when we used to have great, identifying, unifying avatars? I think it's time to do that again, especially with the good feelings surrounding the team now that Budaj isn't our starter and we have a real fourth line and two 30+ goal scorers (we'll not mention the defence in this thread, deal?).

I suggest we come up with avatars for the playoff push/playoffs.

I don't have time to come up with suggestions or templates right this minute, but I thought I'd at least get the conversation started. I, or one of the board's true photoshop wizards (MiG, Jee, RoyMunson, Morrocan etc) can step up to the plate in terms of designing them.

Nice jynx thread but I think our idea should have something to do with Therrien. Maybe Photoshop Bergevin's face on this guy's.

the Rangers (I think it was them) already used that guy.

this isn't a jinx thread, it's for the push as well as the actual playoffs.

also, we're making the god damn playoffs.

I actually really, really like the "Vote for" idea, especially with how contentious Quebec politics is right now.

Might be too much for this board, but I love it. Would make for interesting design possibilities too since political signs/propaganda are often quite visually engaging.

yeah, Pine's idea is definitely a winner.

and for those who are worried we're going to get bumped by three of tampa, toronto, columbus, detroit, and washington...consider this a 'playoff drive' avatar as well as a playoff avatar. also, have some faith in your team

South Park: The Stick Of Truth avatars.

There's even a hockey stick item you can use in the game. Have someone talented enough Photoshop Habs' jerseys on the characters

Every year we do the same thing. It's always some self deprecating, sarcastic theme. Why not go with something a little more creative?

(that goes for nearly all suggestions that aren't pine's).

Well it always depends on where we go with this. It could definitely have a optimist vibe to it: Will never give up, Vote For Gally, Will Block Everything, Vote for Gorges, Will be our best player, Vote for Price, Will Shutdown other team's stars, Vote for Plekanec, Will be clutch, vote for Briere, etc.

Could do a mixture. Though, I'm not sure of the size limit for an avy.

Will play 30 minutes for free.

Let's go Red!

Votez pour Bouillon

Gotta have both and I don't even know if I did the second part right.
