2017 Playoff push avatar ideas

We're getting to that time of the year again. If we want to do playoff push avatars this year, I think we should try to get some ideas out there and have a poll the next couple of weeks. If so, we could have something final by the TDL.

Post your ideas and I'll update the first post as we go.

My (vague) idea is we do something around Limony Snickets A Series of Unfortunate Events (what with the injuries and Henriks extended bad stretch to mention a couple of things).

Ideas:
- A Series of Unfortunate Events.
- Papa Johns
- Miracles (bad team - good record)
- Gum

Papa Johns already.

This is the year we NEED papa johns. The last few years have been bad luck due to not having him. I don't care if other teams advertise for him as well.

Something about our coach being a moron, our defense being bottom 5, our star goalie being "done" and despite all that still being basically top 5 in the standings!

Against main boards narratives?
With all crap you could read there before the season, how Rangers are not a play-off team, they are old, they are in decline, Kreider is 3rd liner, Vesey is not an NHL player, McDonagh is not no.1 defenseman... Fortunately Rangers proved many of them wrong. I think you could collect enough material for avatars there.

Papa Johns is fine, but seeing as they do campaigns with pretty much every NHL team, it's not like it's very NYR specific. Doesn't have to be a bad thing, though.

I added the miracles thing too. Just remember that this is supposed to be a fun thing. If this thread is going to turn into a shouting match between the optimists and pessimists (for lack of better words), I think I'll just give up

Edit: I'll leave it up to mods if they'll accept "main board narratives" as an idea and want to add it.

I'll play with some ideas. We've never tried it because people just say "Papa John's" which never materializes into a tangible theme. There's not much you can do with it in terms of making them unique to specific players either.

I wanted to try the Wizard of Oz/Power Rangers but there's not enough characters.

Not Papa Johns, as they do the same things with multiple teams...and even in multiple sports. It is not unique. Papa John's couldn't care less about the Rangers, lol. We need something more unique.

This is either a great idea or a terrible idea. Tell me what you think. I really don't know which it is.

So how about the first part of the avatar is a stick of gum because AV with some AV saying, or idea he implements or thing that people find amusing or upsetting or something like that about how he coaches, and then the next slide is him putting the gum into his mouth, and then the final part is the end action of what happens once AV does that.

So to give an example. This would be imprinted on the gum.

"Hmmm, might be a good time to use a timeout after an icing late in the game. Nah, I'll decide not to use it."



Then the next slide is AV putting the gum in his mouth or if we can't do that, maybe just chewing the gum with that thought bubble.

Then the next slide would be something like

"And the other team scores off the face-off after the icing to take a 3-2 lead."

Maybe a photo of Tanner Glass with a red "X" over it.

Then the next slide has a celebrating Grabner.

Round it out with a final slide of a winking or grinning Jeff Gorton.

If anyone could think of any clever captions to add to each photo, they could be added.

I think the Papa John's is only really viable in relation to the Cup. Could still have a slide for every player but maybe something related to this:

50% off [blank] if the Rangers score 3. Same template, different [blank] for each user.

I'll be happy to make a playoff push avatar everyone can use. Should probably save the custom ones for the playoffs.

Example?

If we get 50% off for 3 goals, what do we get for a Stanley Cup is the question. Can't believe I just typed that.
