    edit: I don't know if this makes sense idiomatically, but it's pretty much verbatim (Russian doesn't have articles i.e. "a" "an" "the"

    How about a "First place NHL team problems" theme?

    @Migos posted that in reply to @DFC ("It sucks that they keep winning so much. Just makes it worse that they can't win a cup. I wish they'd do their fanbase a favor and lose more.") on the mainboards.

    It is boring to win games by 5 goals ... On paper.

    Time to strike up the talk again.

    I offer one last idea. Not my best but it's a pride thing. JBB gave the boys a glowing endorsement by not making any trades at all. We can make on paper jokes and no cup jokes but the organization has clearly embraced it's destiny with these players.

    With that the theme is Tampa vs The World. I made the phrase earlier kind of as a joke but it gave me the idea

    I don't have the best concept of how it'll be done but the idea is not arrogance but rather the idea of everyone embracing what we've done so far

    Kucherov avatar would say "Best in thr world" because he legitimately is

    Vasilevskiy avatar would allude to being the choice for Vezina because he legitimately is

    Stamkos' avatar would allude to how he's resurrected his career

    I think you get it

    We are reaching "destiny" kind of stuff because of the year we are having. I say embrace our accomplishments because if we are lucky and work at it enough we will stand alone as champions

    We aren't gonna end up a GOAT if we win the whole thing but we've got a chance to be up there if the Lightning finish the year as well as they started it

    Start around 2 minutes in. Just a thought, we are pretty settled probably, but something like -

    Tampa Bay at 1XX points. "THEY'VE GONE PLAID!"

    Kucherov at 1XX points. "THEY'VE GONE PLAID!"

    Vasi at .9XX save percentage. "THEY'VE GONE PLAID!"

    I loved your idea of "He can't keep getting away with it!" it works on so many levels

    Stamkos choking in the playoffs "He can't keep getting away with it!"

    Kucherov being better than McDavid "He can't keep getting away with it!"

    Point being better than some Leaf player "He can't keep getting away with it!"

    Kucherov screwing Holtby literally every time he faces him "He can't keep getting away with it!"

    Cooper hasn't won a Cup with us yet "He can't keep getting away with it!"

    Lather, rinse repeat

    Wow, you guys are funny, and talented. I had wondered where those coordinated avatars came from.

    That on paper one is great fun to look at - I like the throw that crap away end animation.

    Might be good to hit the punchline you're mocking a bit harder. Maybe bigger/bolder, with rage typos. E.g. something like
    ON pAPer!!11!
    rendered as handwriting could be funny.

    Maybe to save time we just use last years. Clearly there is some cheat codes activated this year. :sarcasm:

    Since we're a lock to win the Cup this year, might as well use 2004 playoff avatars. :dunno:
