I don’t know about you but I can’t stop grinning. I look like Bruce Jenner or Davis Gaines after some work.
Anyone else notice Doughty couldn’t barely raise the cup above his head?, let alone keep it up?
Remember how shitty most of us felt after the Kings were shutout at Dodger Stadium against the Ducks?
Is Rick Nash one of the all time busts, or what?
Remember when Lombardi and Lieweke went to Canada to woo Brad Richards and he signed with New York. Can you DODGED A BULLET!
Would Ryan Callahan have made the difference for the Rangers?
To all of you Rangers fans screaming, “We Want The Cup” – You Didn’t Get it.
The Kings have now tied Colorado and the Flyers and the Maroons with 2 Stanley Cups. Next stop, Pittsburgh and New Jersey with 3.
To those of you screaming “Beat L.A.” you might want to consider “BE L.A.”
Is it likely that Matt Greene retires?
Loktionov only played 40 regular season games and didn’t get his name on the cup. Matt Greene only played 38 regular season games this season but according to rule, “The NHL makes exceptions for players who do not meet the standard because of injury or other extenuating circumstances.”
Matt Frattin played only 40 games for the Kings. Would his name have been on the cup if he played in 41? No. Cam Barker played in 51 for Chicago before being dealt to Minnesota and his name does not appear.
Tanner Pearson only played in 25 games during the regular season.
Martin Jones only appeared in 19 regular season games and only appeared in relief in 2 games during the post season.
Lombardi on Marian Gaborik: “We want him back. It all depends on what he wants.”
Lombardi on Mike Richards: “We’ve got to prepare for July 1st in a hurry. Everything is up in air right now.”
Dean Lombardi on whether John Stevens is leaving: “Why would anyone want to leave here?” He says no one has asked to speak to him.
Before you go getting rid of Richards, keep in mind:
- Lombardi loves him
- buying him out is NOT an option. PERIOD.
- Carter might have something to say about it
- Hard to move that contract
- Won’t get value in return
- Replaced Toffoli who did absolutely nothing in the finals save for the last play of the game
- Was only 1 of 4 players to play every single game this season (Voynov, Williams and Kopi were the others)
For as much as Martinez always seemed to be in Sutter’s doghouse, aren’t you glad Lombardi didn’t trade him for a 4th?
Voynov however is a mess, he was constantly toasted like an English Muffin and played the puck so poorly on Brian Boyle’s shortie, I wanted to rope him like a calf.
If Gaborik signs elsewhere (like Boston to play with his fellow countryman Chara) what’s plan B?
What becomes of what undoubtedly be a very hard future trivia question: Which Kings player OTHER than Justin Williams has won 3 cups? Answer: Free agent, Colin Fraser.
The Mayor says Andreoff is a “lock” to make the team next season, but it took more than half a season for Pearson to make the lineup.
Justin Williams also had 35 minutes in penalties.
The Kings, I believe only had ONE fight the entire playoffs (Richards vs Couture)

Isn’t in wonderful that for the 2nd straight time, Kings fans didn’t riot, Kings fans didn’t torch cars, Kings fans weren’t arrested nor did they burn down their city. It proves one again (unlike Lakers fans) that we truly are the class of L.A. fans.
