Well, here it is. The start of the Los Angeles Kings 2011-2012 season. It’s time for the Kings to see if they will fulfill the predictions that they will be a dominate team in the West… or if this ends up being the worst family vacation ever. The posters all around Stockholm have been advertising the game tonight as a game between Henrik Lundqvist and Henrik Lundqvist. So last night… I decided to do some good old fashioned American Vandalism.

And after spending a few days in Stockholm… I think I have a clearer idea of what is next for former Ranger, Sean Avery.

Shopping at the Ikea in Stockholm for his new European apartment.

I am leaving for the game right now. I can’t believe this is actually happening. No, you idiot… not me seeing a game in Sweden… but the NHL season starting. GO KINGS GO!!!!
