Stan Lee is eighty-eight years old. This does not add to his legacy.

I still think that a Ted Lindsay Transformer who shoots Little Caesar's Pizza would be a better representation of the Red Wings.

(I tried to upload the picture but my computer is fail, so you'll just have to click the link if you're interested in seeing the ridiculousness that is the Ted Lindsay Transformer. Sorry.)

Any thoughts on what the "Evil" that they'll all be fighting is?

I'm the only fan? :ph34r:


Negative. I like the concept but as someone stated, the designs are weak

Granted, most of these "Guardians" have been pretty stupid, but the thing bothers me the most are the powers. Almost every guardian has a main power and then "Oh and he can do this and this and this and this..."

Also, someone made an interesting comment on one of the Facebook posts for the project: Why aren't any of the guardians women? I mean, I realize the whole thing is promoting a men's hockey league but I would at least expect to see female guardians for Chicago and Pittsburgh :P

Yep, these suck. I was also optimistic about it at first, but was worried it wouldn't work well because how do you relate superheroes to hockey? I'd be happier with Casey Jones wearing a Wings jersey.

I didn't know the idea of "NHL Guardians" existed until I opened this thread


Me either.

You learn something new every day, I guess.

I suspect that the target audiance for the Guardian Project doesn't post on internet hockey forums.

My 5 year old brother would probably love these concepts.

I had to limit my choice by the current roster. I almost named Stevie but then with all the greats, where do you stop? :)

They should have done East Vs West. East could be Evil, West could be good. Or Vice Versa. Only problem then is you'd have people complaining about if they were good or bad.

Personally, I think Crosby would make a better villian than a super hero :)

I'm not saying I could do a better job than the people in charge of this, but I would do East vs West, and each division could be in a sense it's own league of super heroes. You could even incorporate rivalries, for Example the Wings and Hawks are on the same team, but they still have their own internal disagreements, and even while working together, they are jealous and resentful of one another, during battle attempting to one up each other, and during peacetime, playing pranks and sabotaging one another for kicks. You could have the Penguins be like the genius overlords of the evil team, while Philly is known for being the big mean enforcer that every EVIL superpower needs. Just some examples.

Or a telekinetic robot with outdated airplane wings.....whatever. ***.

This whole project has to be the stupidest thing in the history of history. NHL teams as superheros? Come on. No one will even remember this marketing stunt by this time next year.

A) Bettman is trying to change history and erase the Red Wings place in the original six from the minds of NHL fans (would this make Bettman the criminal The Red Wing figts? hmmmm).
B) Stan Lee doesn't follow hockey and thinks the Red Wings are an expansion team.


I'm willing to be the answer is neither of those.

A) Bettman would never be so intimately involved in this kind of project. (I doubt he even works 8 hr days :lol:)

B) Stan Lee would definitely check facts on something like that... or someone else would at least notice the error before now.

You're not the only one. I tried 3 times to make sense of it, then I looked at the timestamp, back at the username, and moved on :lol:

I'm putting this up there with adding a Southern California expansion team named The Mighty Ducks, with accompanying movies and cartoons.

What? That was proper English, damn it! And I wasn't drunk, I was actually up getting ready for work at that ungodly hour!

"Would that I could actually draw..." is just a fancier and more wistful way of saying, "If I could actually draw, I would probably be able to do something neat." :lol:

My dieting has reduced my boozing as of late, sadly. :P
