  1. To use a Sutterism ‘Awesome”, Nicolas. And that’s a lot of footage to edit into a terrific 5 min synopsis. I esp. like the beg with the revist to Gretzy’s Kings and the current Finalists. Nice touch with showing Gretzy leading the team out from the room and Richards today. I’d say more but I need to watch it again.

    • Thanks! I really wanted to remind everyone the heartache and sorrow of that 92 Stanley Cup Final so they could appreciate all the golas leading to Cup.

      I remember watching it as a kid and crying when the Kings lost in the cup final and then fast forward to 2012 and I am crying at the Staples Center for completely the opposite reason.

  2. “How about this fuckin team right here” J Quick! GKG

  3. Great video man, I still get teary eyed

  4. Is it crazy that I am still in shock and wondrous awe and that I can’t believe this elation is real and still causing tremors of joy constantly? This fucking team!

    • Not crazy…ride that wave for all it’s worth. Watch this video and the others and relive it again…watch the DVD over and over and scream again when Richards destroys Burrows, Brown damanges Sedin and Doughty demolishes Doan and pump your fist and get giddy when that final buzzer goes off. You’ll need to practice these things so next year when the Kings repeat, you’ll be a pro

  5. Great video! Any S&S readers call section 322 their season ticket home? That’s where I’ll be this coming year.

  6. The Music Choice was outstanding.

    Music: My Chemical Romance – Welcome To The Black Parade

    When I was a young boy
    My father took me into the city
    To see a marching band

    He said “Son, when you grow up
    Would you be the savior of the broken
    The beaten and the damned?”

    He said “Will you defeat them
    Your demons and all the non-believers
    The plans that they have made?

    “Because one day I’ll leave you
    A phantom to lead you in the summer
    To join the black parade.”

    The beaten and the damned?”

    Sometimes I get the feeling she’s watching over me
    And other times I feel like I should go
    And through it all, the rise and fall, the bodies in the streets
    And when you’re gone we want you all to know

    We’ll carry on
    We’ll carry on
    And though you’re dead and gone believe me
    Your memory will carry on
    Will carry on
    And in my heart I can’t contain it
    The anthem won’t explain it

    A woman sends you reeling from decimated dreams
    Your misery and hate will kill us all
    So paint it black and take it back
    Let’s shout it loud and clear
    Do you fight it to the end
    We hear the call
    To carry on

    We’ll carry on
    And though you’re dead and gone believe me
    Your memory will carry on
    Will carry on
    And though you’re broken and defeated
    Youe weary widow marches on

    On and on we carry through the fears
    Disappointed faces of your peers
    Take a look at me ’cause I can not care at all

    Do or die
    You’ll never make me
    Because the world will never take my heart
    Though they try, they’ll never break me
    We want it all, we wanna play this part
    I won’t explain or say I’m sorry
    I’m not ashamed, I’m gonna show my scar
    Give a cheer for all the broken
    Listen here, because it’s only

    I’m just a man, I’m not a hero
    Just a boy who’s meant to sing this song
    Just a man, I’m not a hero
    I don’t care

    We’ll carry on
    We’ll carry on
    And though you’re dead and gone believe me
    Your memory will carry on
    You’ll carry on
    And though you’re broken and defeated
    Youe weary widow marches on

    Do or die
    You’ll never make me
    Because the world will never take my heart
    Though they try, they’ll never break me
    We want it all, we wanna play this part

    Do or die
    You’ll never make me
    Because the world will never take my heart
    Though they try, they’ll never break me
    We want it all, we wanna play this part

    According to many musicologists, the lyrics can be often used for many meanings beyond the original meaning of the lyrics arising from The Black Parade rock opera centering on a dying character with cancer known as “The Patient”.

    To me, the music with the visual portray how the Kings finally overcome the past adversity and achieved the utimate victory, breaking new records that will likely never be duplicated.
    Fight on, fight on, GO KINGS GO!
