THE LA KINGS ARE GOING TO CANADA!!!

That's right, the LA Kings are going to Western Canada! And on purpose even! Whenever the LA Kings play back to back games with the Edmonton Oilers and the Calgary Flames it really brings back some of my fondest memories as a blogger. First up, are the Edmonton Oilers. With 9 points in 14 games, Edmonton Oilers rookie Nail Yakupov is showing everyone across the league that as a 19 year-old he could...

...lead the LA Kings in scoring.

But simple tasks like "scoring goals" aren't the only things Nail Yakupov can do. And as with any young phenom that loves to be the center of attention... Hollywood has taken notice. So you know what that means... as soon as the Edmonton Oilers season ends April 27th, Nail Yakupov heads down to Los Angeles to star in his first acting role...

...a remake of The Shawshank Redemption.

More like The Shawnhorcoff Redemption... am I right?!?

FYI, speaking of Shawn Horcoff and Nail Yakupov... read this hilarious thread.

I'm not saying the Nail Yakupov version of The Shawshank Redemption is going to be a bomb... but let's just say it will earn the 1st Overall Draft Pick in 2014. With the recent news that Yakupov will be demoted to the 3rd Line, Hollywood knows the perfect use for attractive 3rd-tier performers who can really dance out on the ice...

Reality shows!

Well, once you've hit the bottom of the reality-show barrel in Hollywood... there really is no where else to go.

Except being the Celebrity Pace Car for the Red Bull Soapbox Race Los Angeles 2013!!!

This just shows how short-sighted Hollywood can be. Everyone knows the best use for Nail Yakupov!!!

Time-traveling DeLorean!

I have no idea who created this GIF but it is amazing.
