    I thought there was enough discussion in other threads to warrant its own thread. The earlier we make this the more obnoxious it gets

    Idea's discussed in other threads:
    • On paper
    • Golden State Warriors
    • Haven't won a cup
    • **** Dom Says
    • This isn't even my final form
    • Arrogance is Bliss

    My idea for this year was “wins required 16"
    The idea is regular season stats, records, awards, win streaks, points, head to head results, don’t matter just the 16 wins.

    Would look like this but say “Wins Required 16”

    A more serious entry as opposed to a funny avatar theme.
    But can be used for messing with the main board and go with a different theme when required.

    On paper with stick figures sounded hilarious

    And final form could be fun too.

    Wrestling / Macho Man / Macho King / cream of the crop rises to the top

    Dude was cocky and awesome, just as we are!

    Boo to anything wrestling related. Anything but them.

    On paper and no Cup are great. **** Dom says would probably win us the best playoff avatar trophy if done correctly.

    Another theme concept, comparing ourselves to other all time great NHL teams and saying we're better than all of them (i.e. 70s Canadiens, 80s Oilers, Red Wings at their peak, Blackhawks and Pens, etc.)

    I am rather partial to the GSW concept though as I feel thats a meme everyone on main board will recognize. Hmm.. what about.. Sunshine State Warriors?

    Something honoring Yzerman and his legacy as GM?

    I mean he's the reason for where we are right now after all.

    Stay with me here....

    How about we evolve each playoff round?

    Round 1: **** Dom Says

    Round 2: on paper

    ECF: BUT THEY HAVEN'T WON THE CUP YET!!

    SCF: God willing we make it we become the GSW.

    If we win we reach our final form as Stanley Cup champions


    All we gotta do is tell people we haven't reached our final form.


    And to be the heels we start our avatars now and wear them. I know it's a lot of work but it could be the most fun we've ever had and everyones idea will get used.

    I don't really disagree. Wrestling avatars have been done almost every year on here.

    Personally, I love the "on paper" with a ****ty doodle. GSW and arrogance is bliss would be good too.


    Wrestling is too niche.

    "On paper" with a stick figure doodle is my favorite as well. How many fricking times have we heard that phrase tossed at our team?? :banghead:

    Just three basic frames needed unless fancy transitions are desired.

    For example:

    1. Pic of Hedman that says "Norris Winner"
    2. Stick figure with a 77 on shirt - "on paper"
    3. Stanley Cup playoffs logo w/ Lightning logo

    You should make one for each suggestion. This one has my vote so far.

    I was actually contemplating doing that. Obviously they would mostly be my interpretation of said theme but easily tweaked when necessary.

    I came up with the "Haven't won a cup" thing, but I think "on paper" trumps it. It's just easier to make the jokes clear (and funny).

    We could bring the Cup one out as the ultimate "anti-jinx" in future years, if things go wrong this spring.

    We need to hurry. The main boards are populating again. My contempt will remain still only so much longer

    I will take the magic number avatar
