Let's see what some of your favorite boys got for Christmas!

"Have a tic-tac" - Santa [to Matt Irwin]
The Roosevelts

Christmas has now come and gone, and now is my favorite time of year--return season! Just kidding, returning things after Christmas is the worst and I usually forget to do so, which means I'll forever be in possession of something like this:

That's not to say that I'm not grateful for these cat pajamas, especially since I haven't done laundry since December 4, which means I'll be wearing these to work in a week or two when I run out of the rest of my clothes.

Enough about that, let's see what the boys on the Sharks got for Christmas!

Joe Thornton: tearaway hockey pants

Patrick Marleau: A new Tickle Me Elmo doll and an autographed Justin Williams jersey

Joe Pavelski: American flag swimming trunks and a budweiser 40

Logan Couture: A sugar cube. He didn't get what he asked for. Yelling at a mall Santa about the Stadium Series jersey did not help him get the jerseys changed.

Tomas Hertl: To no surprise, Tomas loves Santa so he asked Santa to have a milk and cookies date with him on Christmas Eve. The guys couldn't tell Tomas the truth about Santa so they hired Tim Allen dressed like Santa to spend some time with him. It's now December 27 and Tim Allen still won't leave his apartment.

Brent Burns: I mean, of course he got dragon toys

Matt Nieto: To remind him of his roots, Matt Nieto received a Long Beach Snoop Dogg tank top and a gift card to in-n-out.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic: Acquired ten more dogs

John Scott: Somebody was a bad little boy right before Christmas and got coal. Santa follows the Department of Player Safety on twitter.

Tommy Wingels: A new Muppet Babies lunch pail with a kermit thermos

Mike Brown: A new sack with dollar signs on it for his contract extension money

Antti Niemi: He asked his teammates to stop referencing Finding Nemo and start referencing Little Nemo

Alex Stalock: He loves the film Grumpy Old Men, so originally he asked to go ice fishing with Walter Matthau. Since Walter Matthau died 14 years ago, Alex said, "just find me some other old guy to go ice fishing with." He did not enjoy his day with Martin Brodeur all that much, unfortunately.

Scott Hannan: New arms, legs and eyes for his Mr. Potato doll. He thought the first set was edible.

James Sheppard: A two-page list on "How to be cool" written by Matt Nieto

Andrew Desjardins: To not play with John Scott and Mike Brown. HEY look at that

Todd McLellan and Doug Wilson: Asked for brains. We'll see!

Gameday!

San Jose Sharks @ Los Angeles Kings

7:00pm PST

Miserable Shithole Hell Arena

NBCSN

Prediction:

Sharks are too busy with their new toys. Sharks lose, 4-1. One sad goal from Joe Thornton.

Who will be there to protect Hertl from knees?!
