GIF That Best Represents the Past Few Weeks for the LA Kings:


Simpsons Episode That Best Represents the Past Few Weeks for the San Jose Sharks:




There has been a lot of talk about the LA Kings and San Jose Sharks uniforms heading into Saturday's Coors Light Stadium Series game. Especially from Darryl Sutter!

"Them White Pants!" is my favorite Comedy Central show from 2001.


Recently, the rumor was floated that Reebok's contract with the NHL will be up soon and several clothing companies would be interested in designing and manufacturing the iconic NHL jerseys. Well, we here at The Royal Half were able to use our insider connections to get a sneak peek at the 5 companies that plan to bid against Reebok for the NHL jersey contract!



The company collapsed in 2010 and hasn't done anything significant since. But now Ed Hardy is primed for a comeback in the NHL jersey market!


Here is something else that hasn't done anything significant since 2010.

Ed Hardy has done extensive research and they have a clear vision of their target NHL market.


The state of New Jersey!



As the sponsor for the football stadium that the 2015 Coors Light Stadium Series is being played in, Levi's might also become a natural fit as the jersey provider for the NHL. Especially considering that a majority of elite NHL players already wear denim on a regular basis.


Or as it's called in Canada, a "tuxedo."

Again, Levi's is a company that has done its research and knows its audience.


You know, for Western Night.

And if Levi's gets an NHL jersey contract, NBC has the perfect sideline reporter!



Betabrand is an upstart clothing company that has designed a line called the Flashback collection. When worn, these clothes can turn you invisible!

So now the Toronto Maple Leafs players and fans have a reason for not showing up!



If there is one thing we've learned about Brent Burns the last few years, it's that he's destined for much more than just being a hockey player.

Burns is known for his keen fashion sense outside the dressing room.

So why wouldn't the NHL team up with one of its most outspoken stars to create a brand new line of hockey jerseys?


The Sharks are falling so fast... they've gone to plaid.



Look, I'm not saying that American Apparel would be the best match for the NHL in terms of manufacturing jerseys...


but you can bet their ads will be AMAZING.


Our recap of the past few weeks in all things #Gustl.

While "That 70s Line: Part Deux" has been tearing up the NHL... former That 70s Line cast member Tanner Pearson has been keeping himself busy.


I've never wanted to break my ankle so bad in my entire life.



The LA Kings and San Jose Sharks have been featured the past 3 weeks on EPIX Presents Road To the NHL Stadium Series. Here are your Top 3 GIFs from the series so far:


Brown and Kopitar acting like good Americans and insulting the president.



Yup... the only Cup that Joe Thornton has ever brought home.
