Love the 'O Canada' idea, I think that's a winner. The funny ones have the potential to be, as usual, hilarious, but we seem to always pick or lean towards ones that ironically criticize ourselves. Lets make a more proud one this year, imo.

Bingo bango.

With Price owning in the Olympics and a potential referendum, it would be great

Ive got a new winner.
We just have to wait for the Leafs to lose a few games. Shouldn't be very long.

Team Canada Avatar Relevancy

Ironic due to Quebec/Sovereignty issues
Carey Price/Subban Team Canada relevancy
Montreal being Canada's only team in the post-season (maybe)

It is probably more relevant then all the other avatar themes. The difference in possible tones also helps. It could be taken serious, it could be funny, it could be both.

If we end up being the only Canadian team in the playoffs, the "Oh Canada" or "Canada's Team" themes have the most potential to be awesome while annoying a lot of other fan bases at the same time.

I don't know what media you guys are reading, but there won't be a referendum anytime soon. Pauline is a chicken and always eludes the question. She's not an evil mastermind hiding her cards. Just an old chicken whose botox injections got to her brain. Couillard is a proven crook and he says there's gonna be one because it profits his party.

I know the media only talk about this, so it's relevant to the epicness of this avatar theme, but the reality is plain and simple: absolutely no chance of a referendum.

But let's not digress.

If PKP gains popularity it could be the start of something. It won't happen under Marois but he might be next in line and who knows...

But I agree let's not digress, I could talk QC politics for a long time and I'm a born and raised Ontario boy.

I like the team Canada theme the Laffs and their supporters are always saying they're Canada's team would also be a nice dig on them.

4- be positive/constructive in your comments

Last year, things were going nowhere, but in the end, we were able to use ideas from different members and came up with a nice concept that could be customized whichever way you wanted. Wanna be supportive of the team? Sarcastic? Playful? There can be room for that, provided the idea is 'flexible' enough.

Still 3 weeks until the end of the season. Lots of water under the bridge. Someone might come up with a brilliant idea once the Habs have qualified for the playoffs.

Which brings me to...

What if the Leafs (please God please God pretty please) don't make the cut? What if the Habs are the only Canadian team in the playoffs?

I'd love to have a 'O Canadiens - Our only native team' avatar.

Example:

SLIDE 1 - CH logo:

O

OUR ONLY
NATIVE
TEAM


SLIDE 2 - #TheRealTeamCanada hashtag

SLIDE 3 - picture of player

SLIDE 4 - catchphrase

Examples of players/catchphrases:

Pic of Price: 'Price stands on guard for thee'

Pic of Gallagher: 'True North strong and free'

Pic of Galchenyuk: 'We see thee rise'

Pic of Bournival: 'Ton bras sait porter l'épée'

Pic of Bouillon: 'Il sait porter la croix'
(maybe a photoshopped pic of Cube crucified... happens regularly 'round here )

Pic of Subban: 'Just watch me'
(of course, some of you might be too young - or historically-challenged - to get the Trudeau reference here)

Pic of Therrien: 'Blame Canada'

And so on.

Don't want to be a ****-stirrer by adding yet another theme here, but like I said, the night's still young...
While the Vote For is a really smart concept, the Habs being the only Canadian team in the Playoffs and your concept would be extremely brilliant.

I like.

We can have pride, sarcasm and really honor our friends in Ottawa and Toronto.

At this point, it's not like there's a high probability of your work being done in vain. Leafs are #10 and trending downwards.

Anyways, we can continue discussing the topic and decide when the Leafs lose their next 2 or 3 games.

Let's face it, we have the funniest board by far, and our playoff avatars are most successful when we're channeling that funny energy. We just need a solid and relatable theme to make everybody jump on board.

If it's just us (or even just us and the Leafs) making the playoffs I'm throwing my vote down for CANADA'S TEAM as the main theme. The following frame could be sub-jokes "Montreal Typical" or "Referee Fund" or whatever specific player reference ("Classiest Players: Subban", etc.) but the overarching theme will draw the ire of all the haters in Canada AND bring out the jingoism of our neighbours down in America AND peeve off Quebec separatists who hate Canada.

So, basically, we exist on our own island both figuratively and literally and everyone is out to get us, or they don't like us, so the Canada's Team fits in perfectly.

And if the Leafs make it, it adds another layer of a big F U to them too. I think it's perfect.

So do I go for Canada's Team? 'cuz the samples I've been working on said 'The Real Team Canada'...

(Canada's Team probably sounds better, but I have my head up my butt doing these, so I'm a poor judge)
