It is the biggest Sunday of the year. Why? Because it’s the Game of Thrones season finale. Yes, I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan and no I’m not a loser. If you don’t like dragons, T&A or white walkers then you need to take a lap. Summer is almost over, meaning hockey is about to start. So why not mix the best of both worlds? Here is your NHL Starting lineup of Game of Thrones lookalikes.
RW- Patrik Laine
The Finnish sensation took the hockey crowd by storm this year. He’s cocky, he’s blonde and he can absolutely back it up. Now Brienne of Tarth isn’t cocky but she is arguably the best swords-woman in the seven kingdoms.
C- Joe Thornton
Jumbo Joe seems to be a fun guy in the locker room. He’s an experienced veteran and clearly has seen some shit. He’s supposed to be one of the funniest guys on the team and his work ethic has never been questioned. Who does that sound like? My favorite character, Tormund. Tormund is one of the best fighters and goes to battle no if ands or butts. Also, this is pretty easy considering they have the same beard– Just different colors.
LW- Tyler Seguin
The old King of the North. Robb Stark was young, dashing and super talented. He led at a young age and his people went to war from him. Tyler Seguin is the same person. So much money, so much skill, and a ladies man. Tyler, you are the old King of the North.
D- Seth Jones
To be honest, I don’t know much about Seth Jones but by looking at him I feel like he’s soft spoken. He’s young, skilled and one of the best American Defenseman there is. So is Grey Worm. Grey Worm is the first on the ground for his Queen and is always trusted.
D- Torey Krug
Krug and Marchand always bust each other’s balls about who is shorter, well you know what Torey– it’s you. You’re short, you see the ice better than almost anyone and you like to party. Who does that sound like? Tyrion Lannister. BOOM. He’s small, he wheels, he likes booze and the guy has vision. Tyrion looks like he’d be a Michigan State guy too.
G- Tuukka Rask
Now Tuukka has won plenty of playoff series, and even a Cup. However, Bruins fans seem to get on him for a lot of stuff even though he’s a top 10 goalie in the game. Theon Greyjoy has been through similar things. Most GoT fans don’t like him because of his betrayal towards Robb Stark, but the guy is still alive and now he’s fighting for the right side. I believe, he will play a serious role in the fight against the White Walkers.
We’re down 1 with a minute to go. Time to pull the goalie and get another guy out there. Who should we choose? Oh my god is it…? It can’t be…
Heroes come and go but legends are forever. Jaromir Jagr is the one absolute legend in the NHL right this second. He’s accomplished more than anyone in the game all while rocking some serious lettuce. Jon Snow was Lord Commander, killed White Walkers and is now the King of the North. Down a goal, you put Jagr on the ice- or in this case, Jon Snow.
Only a couple more hours until the Finale and I for one am absolutely BUZZING. Once the episode is over, things will again begin to come to a standstill. However, even though it’s over, it just means we’re one day closer to hockey season.
