You're wondering what a picture of Chris Hemsworth is doing as the main pic here. There's an actor on a hockey site, which feels out of place. Granted, he does look like a good actor to play a Swedish hockey player. Yet, you probably have some questions...

"What is Thor doing on a Vegas Golden Knights blog? Shouldn't he be with Captain America and Iron Man putting Thanos out of his misery?"

Well, dear reader, imagine if a movie about the team's 2022-23 Stanley Cup run was being shot. It would highlight how they started on a Stanley Cup run in 2017-18, helping the community overcome a tragic mass shooting that happened a week before the regular season's start. Although they didn't win it all, hope was on the horizon.

Then it was a series of trials and tribulations, with one head coach fired after blowing a 3-1 lead. The head coach that won the series takes over, leading them to two straight semifinals.

The actor from theThor films would also have a side story of him and his wife rescuing a dog from a Korean dog meat trade. It would tell how the dog, Obi, would become an integral part of his Vegas Golden Knights career, endearing viewers and fans alike. Of course, there would be other parts of the story, including his love for soccer.

All the ladies would get a view of a shirtless Australian portraying a Swedish hockey star. Imagine Hemsworth giving Karlsson's famous "Day F****** One" speech before the credits hit. The star holds a beer up to the crowd, building the story for his friend to be introduced. He embraces his buddy for winning the Conn Smythe trophy as he douses himself in another beer. Of course, that playoff MVP would be played by none other than...
