Waffle Cup Eastern Conference Final



It's that time of the year again... where the best GDTs of the league will be facing each other. For this playoff round, please pick 1.

Come on guys, no offense to the wings GDT but this shouldn't even be close if anyone actually took the time and checked the difference in GDTs.

This is about two completely different GDT styles, all right, but one style appeals to a certain audience and the other to another one.

Back in my day we didn't have any of these paintshop or photosoft doohickeys that you youngsters have... We appreciated the time and effort put into things... And didn't waste! It's a shame you're little picture books are being appreciated more than a true piece of literature... MSE represents a time when gas was cheap and global warming didn't exist, when life was good. Now this younger generation brings in all their techno gadgets and dub hop music crap and is taking it away... The MSE way, is the only way.

What exactly is the criteria for this? Is this like 'best writing for episode #10 of blah blah blah' at the Emmy Awards?

So we're evaluating one specific Detroit Red Wings GDT vs one specific Flyers GDT? Or are we evaluating who has the 'best GDT' in an ongoing sense?

If it's the latter there's really no contest. MSE does that kind of thing game-in and game-out. Just go the Flyers board and pick random GDT's. Now go to Detroit and pick random GDT's from last year. You'll notice the difference.

This is two entirely different styles. I like both, but I prefer the substance of MSE's.

Yes it is on just these two GDTs. And Flashy does this kind of stuff all the time, his work is amazing. I don't see the need for either side to bash the style of either of these GDTs. They are both well done pieces of work, just vote for your favorite and thank both guys for the effort they put into them and for entertaining us all year long.

I don't really get why the Wings one is winning. I've seen some epic GDTs linked from or made on the Oilers forum that are comparable with the Wings one. Haven't seen anything like the Philly one here.

I know we're voting based on this one particular GDT, but every single Flyers GDT against every single opponent is exactly like this one. To be honest, that GDT was a little short compared to some of the marvels MSE has produced, mainly compared to the ones against division rivals. (The Flyers Rangers alumni game from 2012 GDT OP spanned 2 and a half posts)

To fans of other teams, you should come to the Flyers GDT when you face the Flyers. Reading the team vs team histories are awesome, we're spoiled we get it every game, or at least every game since I've been here.

I get that Detroit brings a whole different element, and I think it's a "good" GDT, I just think MSE's is so much more unique.

edit: whoops

The reason I think the Flyers GDT should be winning is simple. Go to other teams and look at their GDT's, I think it's a safe bet that more than a few would be very similar to this Detroit one. A common theme is the heavy use of Photoshop and using pop culture references. Then you look at MSE's GDTs, there's no other like them. None have the same amount of research put into them for sure. MSE puts in the time to find interesting facts and bits of history between the two teams, that IMO, pushes it over the top of any other GDTs. All the others maybe good, and funny, but I'll always enjoy and prefer to learn about some history of the rivalries, key things that happened between the franchises in the past. All these others have been good, but nothing can too MSE's.

Flashy is about to make this a repeat of the 1997 SCF

You know, the sweep? Where Lindros had 1 goal? And McCarty had a beaut?
