It's been about a week since we announced the Giordano PS contest, so it's time to reveal the entries and start voting for the winners.
Things started out slowly since the celebratory theme made it a bit tougher for folks to come up with ideas. It's easier to be mean, apparently. That said, we ended up receiving 12 quality photoshops. Some won't be eligilbe for the prize (they'll be marked and won't show up in the poll), but all are worthy of being posted.

As part of th upcoming "Yay! Optimism!" series, we'll be putting together a number of articles on Mark Giordano whose unlikely meteoric rise through the Flames depths charts these last few years is one of th best stories in the NHL. An undrafted junior from the OHL, Giordano was a training camp try-out away from becoming an accountant. Now he's a $4M+ per year NHL defender and future assistant captain of the Calgary Flames (probably).
