    Hello, hello. It's about that time. Have we decided on a theme? We discussed possibilities months ago, but maybe what we wanted's changed. I'll create a poll.

    I will make them, but if anyone wants to help out, it'd be much appreciated.

    Unsustainable.
    Best NHL Franchise ever (but it’s a small sample size)
    Why wait? (Fleury’s response to playoffs in three)

    House Money definitely sounds great.

    Whatever Happens... would be kinda neat too, although quite cliche.

    I'm going to try to find some examples of other playoff avis for the Vegas fans that might not know the deal.

    While I do that, here's the one I did for last year's playoffs. I think only one or two of us used it, and it was mostly to troll.

    I'm not really a fan of those two choices but I don't have any good ideas right now.

    The only people who care about revisionist history is us.

    Here's a low effort example of the "Why Wait" Idea.

    We could also do a "turning everything into gold" theme.

    Pictures of Karlsson on CBJ with 6 goals, 40 something in Vegas.
    Pictures of Subban puking on myself in Boston, looking like a starter in Vegas.
    Picture of Reilly Smith looking sad in Florida and smiling in a Knights uniform.

    Etc.

    We didn't pay our dues. Apparently that's a thing.

    I have another idea if we don't want to go a jokey route with the avatars.

    "58 Reasons Why" the Golden Knights have a chance. The number itself would be honoring the victims, but it would simply be about the reasons why this team has been so good this season, and it's a play on the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why.

    I think the could be a step too far with the whole 58 thing. Takes a little away from the sybolic gesture.

    bumping we should get going o
    n this. Playoffs are almost here

    Why Wait
    House Money
    Turning everything into Gold
    Revisionist History
    Unsustainable

    Some ideas I've thought about

    Something about Vegas Flu
    Lowered Expectations (old MAD TV sketch)

    So like we could have a player and their expectations compared to what they are now. Like Wild Bill 20 point defensive depth player: 40 goal scorer.

    New Kids on the Block? Maybe we can photoshop player faces to photos like this

    I'm getting ready to go into radio silence for my forthcoming move, we've got to get this figured out since I can't help out with last minute stuff.

    Someone take the lead here.

    Wow, it's definite, huh? Bummed out that you won't be here for the playoffs. Very jealous that you're moving out of this desert.

    We should have a meet up in your honor. I'd like to buy you a beer. I'm sure others feel the same.

    I always feel like people ignore stickies, so I guess this is a good experiment. :laugh:

    Yeah, it's happening.

    I'm not super excited to leave Las Vegas, I really like it here, but I'm also excited to try out the green thing. Exciting new opportunities and such.

    Are you heading to Seattle to begin work ushering in another new NHL team into the league?

    I think we can even use that Lo-Fi logo screen and photoshop in the VGK logo.
