In last night's Top Six Minutes, Andrew made an awesome Game of Throne reference, by nicknaming Ben Bishop "the Mountain that Skates", based on Gregor Clegane "the Mountain that Rides".
Following which a discussion started about that, and I stated wanting to find a GoT alter-ego to each Habs player. Which obviously prompted fellow Habs and Got fans to ask me to do a fan post about it.
So I obliged. Here I go. Of course, these are merely suggestions, feel free to make your own proposals in the comments. Especially since I lack imagination. Plus, once you eliminate all the unlikeable GoT characters, it begins to be really hard (yeah, I don't want to put an a**h*** as an hab alter-ego, sue me).
Also, a friendly reminder : not everybody has read the books (although you really should), so no spoilers when justifying your choices (but books 1 and 2/season 1 and 2 are fair game).
Bonus points for those who find alter-egos for past Habs.
Extra bonus points for those who do a little photoshop magic.
So let's go. I'm going to begin with two awesome suggestions, courtesy of Stephan Cooper : - Max Pacioretty as Beric Dondarrion. Keeps dying and coming back to life. - PK Subban as Jon Snow. Talented, but constantly gets shit on.
And here are mine:
Ryan White as Tyrion Lanister. Because he's small and pisses everybody off on the other teams.
Andrei Markov as Ser Barristan Selmy. The General is our Lord commander of the Kingsguard.
Brandon Prust as Bronn. Doesn't look like much, but quite effective in their role.
Alex Galchenyuk as Loras Tyrell. Both are young, talented, and have a hot sister.
