The *OFFICIAL* 16/17 Hurricanes Playoff Bandwagon Thread - HFBruins are OTC

Greetings HF, as you may not be aware or care about, the Carolina Hurricanes are not very good at hockey and, as such, do not make the playoffs very often. So, it is our annual tradition to put our posters up for grabs in an annual draft by teams that *do* make the playoffs, to bandwagon for them.

As per usual, I will randomize a draft order a little bit closer to the playoffs when positioning is a little more set (lots of close races atm), so this thread is just more of a "keep you in the know" sort of thing for playoff teams who want to get scouting reports or whatever about our posters when the draft starts.

You can find our board's thread on this here, if anyone wants to drop by and ask a question or anything

I'll finish for now, by saying: Good luck to all the playoff teams this year, and we all look forward to cheering for the teams who draft us and being able to have a vested interest in playoff hockey since the #hcanes don't ever qualify

Happy ploffs errbody #16teams1goal #BecauseItsTheCup

This is..... awesome

A little OT - But I remember there was something similar when the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg, I'd love to know if any of those fans actually stuck with the teams that drafted them.

So do you just pick one poster per playoff team to draft for that particular board? or can we have multiple people pass over you in the draft

Last year the boards decided amongst themselves who would be making draft picks for their boards, just a collaboration of sorts.

All y'all can figure out how you wanna do this, it's for fun anyways, but it is nice for us to have teams to root for.

We all like and watch the playoffs, but it's kinda fun to have an actual vested interest

I think on our board it will be easy to make the choice who we would (or wouldn't take)

I will determine (randomize) the draft order early next week most likely so we can get this ship sailing.

I will also post links to the profiles of Canes posters available so other teams can have some more infos about us.

Let's hope this is another roaring success

you better hope you get lucky on ping pong ball day, or send the right people to the draft with a good enough trade proposal

Agreed. Give up all picks (if more then 1) to be able to select him/her.

We should do like last year and post some of our pros and cons so other teams know what they are getting into when we start.

I'll go first:

PROS:

- I apparently make really good GDTs. The Star Trek ones I did for the Ducks two years ago earned me Gowron levels of support from the Klingon High Council and the ones I did for the Ducks, Predators, and Sharks last season all went over well also

- I am an MS Paint wizard, and can make it look like photoshop

- halleJOKEL once called me his greatest imitator

- I have a very bizzare, but hilarious sense of humor. Think of it as if you mixed Mitch Hedberg with Jim Jeffries.

- I am the penultimate nerd, fluent in various memes and Sci-Fi stuff

- I speak Drow (Dark Elf)

- I am well liked by several boards for some reason I have yet to figure out

- There is a thread in the Lounge calling me the best poster its had in 12 years

- I can make some mean pulled pork in various styles

- Fugu once told me that she liked me as a poster


CONS:

- Fugu once told me that I reminded her a five year old whose mom was upset with him

- I have been known to make the occasional stupid post

- I am a bad troll

- I am on Team Mystic

- I often use this as an avatar:

I hope you don't randomize, but do a weighted lottery biased towards the wild card teams.
