2010 Playoffs Avatars: "No Red Wings, No Playoffs" (65+ of 81 completed)
Credit to ProPAIN for coining the slogan "No Red Wings, No Playoffs"
The story behind this theme is kind of along the lines of "It Never Gets Old". It would've been a perfect slogan to use again this year but I didn't want to do that and figured we could just use something similar for this year. For the first time in quite a while, we actually had to sweat it out as fans to see if they were even going to get in this year.
My spin on this is that you almost couldn't see the playoffs without the Red Wings being involved. No team has a streak like Detroit has without the playoffs and if or when it ends, it would just seem strange to not see them playing into the spring. I almost equate it to having some well-known combination or duo and not having either half...it would seem incomplete.
So, here are your options:
1. Request an individual player (with a photo of your choice or I can find one for you)
2. Request multiple players (slideshow -- limit of 3)
3. Request a favorite "combination"
*If the combination thing doesn't make any sense or doesn't appeal to you, then stick with players. I figured I'd throw that out as another option.
These will be made as animated GIFs with multiple frames. I'll begin work on these starting next week and as requests are made. I will make these in the order I receive your request. I'll make one for myself first to use an example.
(Please keep try to this thread to just requests or feedback...thanks!)
