LEE STEMPNIAK VS THE LA KINGS SCORING JEFF CARTER'S GOALS UPDATE:
 
 
 
LA KINGS PACTRAK:
 
 
The LA Kings have earned 6 of a possible 12 points versus 6 straight Pacific Division opponents.
 
The Los Angeles Kings are 4th in the Western Conference, 7th overall in the NHL, 3rd in the Western Conference in Goals For, 4th in Goals Against, have won 3 in a row, are 7-3-0 in their last 10 and are funnier than ever on Twitter. But as we head into the final 18 games of the 2013 Regular Season... there still is one giant hole that the LA Kings have yet to fill.
 
 
A nickname for Tyler Toffoli.
Looking at the photo above... I've never wanted to be Tyler Toffoli so bad in my life.
 
It all started with a Tweet from F'TRH (Friend of The Royal Half) Jack A. Wilson...
 
 
So I did what any great blogger does... I asked other people to do my work for me!
 
 
Presenting... the Top 6 Potential Nicknames for LA Kings Rookie, Tyler Toffoli. 
 
#1) T2
 
 
Judgment Day is also what Darryl Sutter calls
the moment he decides which LA Kings goalie is starting.
 
#2) TiTo
As suggested by @TheMouthLAKings and @DailyMeHow...
 
 
 
It just makes sense.
 
#3) The Toff
As suggested by @jsalsLA...
 
 
 
 
Yes... it is exactly what you think it is.
 
#4) TyFFoid Fever
As suggested by @JoeMcMahoniv...
 
 
 
This could really tie in nicely with the burgeoning LA Kings/8-Bit fans market.
 
#5) Toff Man
As suggested by @RyVCA...
 
 
 
 
#6) ToffOLÉ
As suggested by yours truly...
 
And as executed by Tim from IronsightDesign...
 
 
Who knows which Tyler Toffoli nickname the LA Kings public will embrace. Maybe you have a different one to suggest? But all I know is that I no longer call it a Vacation...
 
 
I call it a Toffoliday!
Let's be honest... everyday is a Toffoliday.
 
 
THE ROYAL HALF GAMEDAY PREVIEW TWEET OF THE DAY

From Dustin Penner, when asked for his opinion of the Corey Perry contract...
 
 
A reminder that this is Dustin Penner's world...
and we are just living in it.
