ARE THE LA KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?
Many Los Angeles Kings fans are dreading today's Game 6. No, not because they are worried that the San Jose Sharks might win and force a Game 7. Rather, LA Kings fans don't want there to be a Game 6 today because it's the same day as the release of the brand new season of Arrested Development and we want to spend all day watching it on Netflix!!!
So since we are forced to watch the LA Kings attempt to eliminate the San Jose Sharks from the 2013 NHL Playoffs today, we here at The Royal Half thought we'd take an in-depth look at the players and management of the LA Kings and figure out which Arrested Development character suits them best.
GEORGE BLUTH, SR.
George Oscar Bluth, Sr. is the head of the Bluth Family. He is well-known for being a failure when it comes to building things... like the Cornballer
This is pretty much every closed-door discussion between a player and Darryl Sutter.
Everyone knows that it's really Lucille Bluth that is the architect of the Bluth Company. But if Lucille Bluth were the GM of the Los Angeles Kings... I highly doubt she would have taken on such damaged goods as Mike Richards, Jeff Carter and Colin Fraser.
Michael Bluth is the smartest and most stable member of the Bluth Family. And much like Michael's one-time British girlfriend... Jon Quick also has an Olympic Silver Medal.
JEFF CARTER & MIKE RICHARDS
G.O.B. & FRANKLIN DELANO BLUTH
G.O.B. is the complete showman of the Bluth Family. He is a magician and a womanizer. Who else is going to play this role besides Jeff Carter... COME ON!!!
And Jeff Carter might just have a better Chicken Dance than G.O.B.
G.O.B.'s sidekick is Franklin... a wise-cracking, jive-talking tiny puppet. Who much like Mike Richards... loves to sing.
Buster is the youngest sibling in the Bluth Family and is also the most socially awkward. He's also terrified of birds. Just like Drew Doughty.
Lindsay is the adopted twin sister who is the prettiest member of the Bluth Family. Justin Williams was acquired by trade and is the prettiest member of the LA Kings.
This is actually the one casting choice that doesn't make sense as Tyler Toffoli looks way too young to play George Michael.
Tobias Fünke's glory years are well behind him and now he spends his time being awful at acting. He is easily the most disrespected member of the Bluth Family. But when it comes time to perform... boy does he ever.
Maeby Fünke pretended to have an illness as a storyline on Arrested Development. LA Kings fans everywhere are hoping that Anze Kopitar is pretending to be injured in the 2013 NHL Playoffs.
Annyong is the non-English speaking member of the Bluth Family that never smiles. Slava Voynov is... well you get the joke.
Because in the 2013 NHL Playoffs... Jarret Stoll has a touch of the dizzies.
Larry Middleman acts as a spokesperson for the leadership of the Bluth Family. He is a consummate professional, never allowing his own persona to come through and always speaks the truth.
Ann is the one character on Arrested Development that everyone forgets about.
ROBYN REGEHR AND JAKE MUZZIN
DRAGON AND UNCLE JACK
Dragon is a deaf and mute hulking protector that enables Uncle Jack to be shot like a bullet. Robyn Regehr is a deaf and mute hulking protector that enables Jake Muzzin to fire shots from the blueline. And miss.
We pretty much came up with this one just so we could post this clip:
Plus we know that Alec Martinez can pull off the disguise.
Oscar is the identical and much less successful brother of George Bluth, Sr. This is the saddest joke I've ever written.
John Beard is the reporter who only seems to cover the comings and goings of the Bluth Family. Jon Rosen is the reporter who only seems to cover the comings and goings of the LA Kings. And Simpsons episodes.
THE PRISON GUARD
I mean... COME ON!!! Could Steve Holt be played by anyone else???
