Just finished doing a little reading on the 1967 expansion.  Damn, I had no idea that St. Louis made it to the finals their first 3 years in the league.  What are the odds these days of an expansion team doing that?

The expansion teams were put in their own conference. One of them had to make the finals every year.

Great game and congrats on winning the Cup.

That's a great team. Enjoy it.

Actually pulling for a sweep so they can take it at home.

The Devils have a HORRIBLE fan base and should probably move. That's not in question. I don't have the silly desire to try and prove anything like that. I'm actually not ignorant.  icon_biggrin

Gellsy trying to convince the world that LA is a hockey town is the what's up for debate (Not really: It isn't).

Outside the 20k that pack the Staples Center nobody cares enough to flip on the TV and take a look.

Sure NHL Radio might suck, but once a month maybe a Kings fan should give them a call, or are they so sophisticated about their sport that they leave the calling to those know-nothings in Toronto and Montreal?

The Kings are such a dominant force on the LA sports scene:

Because that assumption of the kings fan base is extremely incorrect and based in ignorance. Period. End of story. Kings and USC run this town when it comes to devotes fanbases.


Thanks! This pissy, defensive attitude that says a lot. All full of anger.


I think we can all agree: LA = Hockeytown

Gotcha!

Hockey Markets:

1) LA
2) Toronto
3) Montreal
4) Detroit
...


I've been listening to the NHL Radio for about 6 hours a day since the season started and right up until the second round started, there might have been 4 people who called claimed to be Kings fans. With that rabid fan base I can see why you're upset about it.

Typical LA fans. Showing up late for the season and only when the local team is winning.

Edit to add: TMZ on in the other room and I hear "The LA Kings might win the Stanley Cup and everyone is all excited...in Canada"..."So good luck, Kings! Hope you win that Cup that no one in LA cares about"

Perfect timing!

We are friends!! Big kisses all around!

You guys know I've lived in Boston all my life and have only set foot in Jersey 4 times (just to see games), right?

Devils could play on Jupiter, I don't care. Has no impact. They have ZERO fan base, are in a shitty location, and not just Newark but less than 10 miles from an original 6 team. None of that has anything to do with me. I'll follow them to Quebec/Vegas/Hamilton/Anywhere. I've said it before: This isn't the 40's where I only can pick up out-of-town box scores in the papers 2 days later. I can go to 2 or 3 Devils games a year and watch the rest on TV (including pre and post game) like most people do with the teams they live closest to.

The knock on LA has always been that they really don't care all that much about their sports. Sure the Lakers are wonderful and all if you can stomach basketball, but outside of that you guys have a bad reputation 'in general'. Sure it's probably due to the wealth of other things to do. The nice weather, some down times for the local teams etc, but it is your reputation. I'm not making personal attacks, you guys know your shit and are die hards. No problems there. I'm actually an LA (of Anaheim) fan for baseball.

It's like Petesy-Pie trying to defend the reputation of Philly fans. I'm sure there are good ones, like him, but if I asked 100 sports fans who the most angry, hate filled city in sports was, 96 would say Philly (the four others would sprinkle in New York, Boston and San Diego  icon_wink )

Don't get me started on the fans here either. That's a big reason why I don't like most of the local teams.

You can't defend the reputations, only yourself. Why bother anyway?

Gellsy - Hearing a lot of talk from Kings fans: Is the parade scheduled for 11AM next Friday morning or 1PM?

Probably 1PM, LA people don't get up that early.

Yeah, and those 7 guys would probably show up late and leave early too.

I agree that Saturday determines the series. If the Devils take it we should be looking at 6 or 7. If the Kings do, a sweep could be in order.

Good work gellsy, you got to see their last win of the year.

COME AT ME BRO.

So this is probably just for Devil and me, but it's still awesome (and shows how much more Canada tries for their TV broadcasts).  The intro for Game 1 on CBC:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_gLo8VlF3E&feature=youtu.be



That was an awesome video.

Actually trying to manufacture some bad blood for the Kings. If they were playing any other team, I'd be pulling for them.

Kopitar is awesome, don't get me wrong, but is he any better than Giroux/Gaborik/Richards?

The things that made me feel really good about that game where that the Devils completely sucked for most of the game, but as it went on, they got better and better and actually owned the OT with chances to win it.

Game reminds me a lot of game 1 against the Flyers. Devils played like crap and were angry at the way they played. Parise said essentially the same things. Now a lot of that has to do with the Kings being good, so who knows if they can come back, but they seem to think they could play a whole lot better and that showed towards the end of the game.

Kovy took the night off too.

Philly had some decent offense and big guys.

Rangers had all-out defense and an MVP goalie.

They've played both, but not at once. That's the key.

It's gonna be fun!

From what I can tell, this thing is a toss-up until they hit the ice.

Need to see what happens tomorrow night to form any opinion at all.

Even then I don't think we'll know.  Both of these teams are good enough to bounce back from a game 1 loss. 

Probably right, I just assume that the trends will continue and the Kings will win game one, but might be able to tell something from how they play.

The Kings better not pull that shit in Jersey!

Peter Harrold will have to exact more than just his planned scoreboard revenge. He'll be taking numbers!  icon_wink

I now am hoping New Jersey wins for two reasons:

First and foremost, it's going to be much easier/cheaper for me to get a ticket there than at MSG for Game 1.  I'm going to be in NYC anyway, might as well catch the first of the Kings four victories.

Secondarily, your reaction when Brown and/or Richards absolutely destroys Kovalchuk.

A) Richards will be drunk
B) Who's Brown? Never heard of him.

What a clown.

If the lose, he'll be an antagonistic asshole during the press conference, get all chatty tomorrow to try and work the refs for Wednesday and will repeat the whole process until someone ends their season.

Who's killing hockey? Red Wings? Bruins? Rangers? 70's Canadians?

It was 20 years ago, they did what it took to win, like all those other teams and i would love if they could again.

Funny how great pitching is adored in baseball, everyone loves a good defense in the NFL, but if you play shut down defense in the NHL it's "ruining the game".

I'd be THRILLED if I were a Rangers fan. They barely have any talent, have been dominated in 3 games, and are 2 wins from the finals.

Sorry if winning isn't important to you.
