In november we were asking ourselves, will this team make the playoffs, and now we're discussing the playoff avatar.

Call me crazy (especially since I'm. A caps fan saying this), but I'd rather have something optimistic/positive instead of something that keeps reminding/brings up the failures.
I'm with you. Can we have something positive this year? Maybe it will be our good luck charm this year? Every year we have some sort of negative sarcastic thing and end up with the same result.

+1 for optimistic and positive. I do believe in visuals, so who knows maybe our collective optimistic view/thinking on this year's playoff will bring some luck to the caps

I didn't know it was another team's catch phrase. I feel like last year's avatar summed up our feelings, even now. Flip the switch and win, too bad it didn't happen.

Let's go for something positive, I agree.

Hahah, what about a gif of a bunch of office freak outs. Ones where people throw their computer on the ground, destroy a printer, etc - then at the end just have trotz's face with "trust the system" written.

That'd be hilarious.

Something like this? Too large of a file obviously but throwing it out there.

4 panel with the first 3 panels from below and the 4th being a NHL Playoffs 2017 panel.



Perfect.
So... The Heimlich's?

That gif is 2.4 MB. The limit for avatars on this site is 20 KB, so a little less than a hundredth of the size. It's a fun idea, but it's pretty much impossible to use video clips in avatars on this site.

flipping the switch, "win", and a picture of the Cup. It was supposed to be simple and positive.

Will over Skill? Something like Wilson as a wrestler standing over Crosby, Kane, etc.

Embracing the "caps always choke in the playoffs" and using it as an avatar will be a lot more tolerable when the GDT threads with opposing fans start up. Then there will be less posters using those annoying we always choke posts in an argument because there won't be a point in even posting it.

Exactly. This isn't Hogwarts and our avatars aren't really magic. We aren't pushing the team to a win with some motivational image nobody else has thought of. So may as well have some fun and defuse the criticisms before they start.

Caps choke. Yeah. We know. Next.

And if we beat anyone it'll be that much sweeter because they got beaten by the chokers.

Super lame. Why give into the NHL board's negativity?

Someone freaking out --> keep calm & trust the system --> Caps/Cup/playoff logo.
