The Magic of MS Paint

Stumbled on a hilarious thread at HF Forums that features a bunch of marvelous works of Microsoft Paint art related to NHL logos and (in)famous moments in hockey history. There's not enough room here to show them all (highly recommend checking them all out, though) but here's some of my favorites:
Alex Ovechkin (Paint job by: britdevil from the HF Forums)

***


Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz (real and in Paint)


***

Hilarious Paint rendering of a hysterical Olli Jokinen photo
Paint job by: britdevil from the HF Forums
***

Borderline impressionistic take on the Alex Semin fight

***

Two humiliating Ryan O'Byrne moments in one great drawing

***
Edit: Somehow, I forgot the most obvious one (thanks, Amy).

Das Sedins!

OH MY GOD I LOVE THESE. Seriously. Thank you. These are a lovely distraction from homework. I try to make awesome shit on Paint but I suck at keeping my hands steady. These are truly amazing.

Yeah, that post started with some really crude versions of NHL team logos (def recommend checking that thread out whenever you all are bored) but those were just too good to pass up.

Haha, totally. Actually, I might as well slap that one on there too.

DO IT. I'm on there now. These things are amazing. I tried to make one, but alas, I suck.

Oh I've seen things like this before, but usually they're football related. I have a few of my own I never posted, but I haven't seen many of these.

Jesus, I didn't think the Messier/Arnold shot could be made any funnier, but I think they've done it.

Hey, I'm the guy who drew the Messier, Ovechkin and Jokinen pics. Thanks for showing these, as it seems you got me onto the Yahoo puckblog! Good luck in the playoffs from the HFboards Devils Fans!

Spectacular work, britdevil. I'll edit those to give you credit (and will do the same if any of the other MS Painters step forward, BTW).
