With this years the beard is back, I got to thinking of all the playoff slogans over the years and was curious to know what the others have been like. I couldn't find a list of them anywhere and thought I would start a thread trying document as far back as we can go with playoff slogans for future reference.

We had ones such as

2009- The Beard is Back
2008- (Fire on Ice)?
2007- Ride the Red Wave
2006- (Get your red on) ??

I thought it was "Here we grow again"?

I usually don't them but I thought that was a good one.

"I want Stanley"?

08 was "Are You In?"

Fire on Ice was for regular season only

I think "Get Up" from 97 was the best.

The double meaning of "Believe" in '98. Epic.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

2006 was "Bring it." "Get your red on" was their slogan for 2001.

While I don't mind "The beard is back" as it gives something for the fans ot draw on and have fun with despite being rather lame, my personal favorite was from 2002 where our slogan was " Let 'em see red." One of the few that didn't make me cringe.
God put me on earth to do a certain number of things. Right now I'm so far behind I'll never die.

I Want Stanley was AMAZING! (I was 10) Too bad it didn't work...

I think 97's was "Hey, Hey, Hockeytown". I still have the CD.

03's? was Bring Back Stanley. It was one of the years, I can't quite remember which...

I thought this was gonna be 2009 playoff teams. Here's a list of the one's I could find.

BTW: "NONE" doesn't necessarily mean the team doesn't have a slogan, I just couldn't locate it.

Anaheim: NONE
Boston: "We Want It"
Calgary: NONE
Carolina: "Our Team. Our Time"
Chicago: NONE
Columbus: "March On"
Detroit: "The Beard is Back"
Montreal: NONE
New Jersey: "Rock Your Red"
New York Rangers: "I am a Ranger"
Philadelphia: "Hungry for More"
Pittsburgh: NONE
San Jose: either "23 Men - One Mission " or "This is Shark's Playoff Territory"
St. Louis: "The Battle Continues"
Vancouver: NONE

First off, the worst has to be Columbus. "March on"....are you kidding me? I guess "April On" doesn't have the same ring to it. Or better yet.

The Best: San Jose's first one if that's actually it, otherwise Carolina's speaks to me the most.

Best wings, Believe
Worst: The Beard is back.

lol

After reading the other teams', "The beard is back" is not so bad.

"23 men - One mission" is cool but a little cliche.

Oh yeah. I should've known, because I actually liked "I Want Stanley." I've always thought, the more I like a playoff slogan, the less likely we are to win the Cup, and man we had some dumb ones in '97 and '98, whatever they were. I remember liking "Get your red on," and we all remember what happened then.

This year's is cheesier and dumber than ever. I have a good feeling about this.
