THE CALGARY FLAMES VS JEFF CARTER POINTS UPDATE:
 
 
 
ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE PLAYOFFS?
 
It was the Tweet Heard 'Round The World...
 
When Greg Wyshynski questioned whether or not the fans of the Los Angeles Kings booed 20 year-old rookie goaltender Sami Aittkallio as he lay injured in his crease... it created a little bit of controversy.
 













 
Since hockey fans across the world were so appalled by the fans of the LA Kings booing an opposing player that they initially thought was faking an injury in order to stop play and then once they realized that the player was seriously injured they stopped booing... we here at The Royal Half thought we'd provide a helpful guide to classless LA Kings Fans in terms of what they should concentrate their booing on. Presenting... The Top 5 Things LA Kings Fans Should Boo Besides Sami Aittkallio!!!
 
 
5) CANCER
 
Since the LA Kings organization has spent the last few seasons emulating the success of the Philadelphia Flyers... why not emulate the passion of Flyers Fans... and boo cancer! This video played on the jumbotron during a Flyers home game in October 2011... and the fans booed the entire thing.
 
 
Thankfully, some Flyers Fans are able to eloquently explain the confusion over booing cancer.
 
 
I always wondered what happened to Hootie.
 
 
4) GARY BETTMAN
 
 
Those classless, bandwagon Los Angeles Kings fans made the ultimate hockey mistake last June... they didn't boo Gary Bettman when he addressed the team after they won the Stanley Cup.
 
 
Ugh, LA Kings fans are the worst.
 
Those classless LA Kings fans need to emulate the great fans in the NHL, like the ones in Canada!
 
 
You stay classy, Ottawa.
 
 
3) JEFF CARTER
 
 
Oh, I'm sorry... Jeff Carter is my hockey boo. I got confused.
 
 
2) DAN MORIARTY & ANSON CARTER
 
Forget about the players... classless LA Kings fans should really focus their efforts on the people who deserve to be booed the most... the sideline reporters!
 
 
"What's the feeling that you felt inside?"
- an actual question from Dan Moriarty to Tyler Toffoli
 
 
I'm not saying LA Kings fans should boo Anson Carter for his work as an analyst...
I'm saying they should boo him for 1 point in 15 games.
 
1) JUSTIN SCHULTZ
 
Because if the Anaheim Ducks aren't going to boo Justin Schultz right... somebody should.
 
 
Well, at least the fans of the Anaheim Ducks couldn't do anything more embarrassing than boo the wrong defenseman named Schultz, right? RIGHT?!?
 
 
Never change, Anaheim Ducks fans. Never ever change.
