ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?
 
After the Los Angeles Kings 2-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 1 of their 2nd Round series, everyone is talking about the hit by Raffi Torres on Jarret Stoll. In case you haven't seen the controversial hit yet... here is what LA Kings fans saw during the 2nd Period of Tuesday night's game.
 
 
And here is what San Jose Sharks fans saw during the 2nd Period of Tuesday night's game.
 
 
Raffi Torres is no stranger to controversial NHL hits. And if he keeps it up, Torres might soon find himself out of a job. So we here at The Royal Half thought that we'd take a look at some other careers besides "hockey player" that Raffi Torres might excel at. It's the Top 5 Alternative Jobs for Raffi Torres!!!
 
 

5) NFL LINEBACKER
 
 
I'm not much of a football fan... but if there is one thing I've learned from watching movies, it's that a NFL Linebacker's job to hit the quarterback from the blind side. So who better at that than Raffi Torres?
 


4) ILLEGAL DOWNLOADER
 
 
For sometime now, I've maintained that Raffi Torres should open up an illegal downloading site called "Raffi Torrents." I'll let the internet take the rest of the joke from here.
 
 



3) CORPORATE HEADHUNTER

Because if there is anyone that knows about going after the most talented and skilled workers in their field... it's Raffi Torres

 

2) NHL INTERN

Since Raffi Torres is used to making appearances at the NHL's Head Offices in New York City, maybe it's time for him to apply for an internship. This way Torres still gets to be around the game he loves so much... but the various teams that he plays for save money on airline tickets back and forth to New York. 

 

1) HEADSHOT ARTIST

'

Raffi Torres knows exactly what goes into making a great headshot. So now that he is employed in the state of California, Torres' next step can be a Headshot Photographer. And to be honest... he can start by taking headshots of his teammates. 

Oh wait... nevermind. He's already done that.

Well at least as a headshot photographer, Raffi Torres can finally help out Patrick Marleau.





If there’s one trait that Patrick Marleau and Dean Lombardi have shared over the past 16 years, 
it’s an inability to smile.
