Every OT game in the Finals it was like the Montreal players just checked with Roy and he was "Yeah, I got this."
Yeah, friggin Roy.

I agree though, this team, it's not some magical, last-gas-in-the-tank run that ended up setting the team up for a decade of failure. This team is young enough to start to continue this level for the next several years, longer if DL and Co. play their cards right.

At a time like this, I think of posters like Ron. I have been a Kings fan since Gretzky got here, carried away in the hype an 11-year-old gets watching his favorite player move to LA. I have been a Kings fan for 24 years as a result, and in the last 19 years I have seen two playoff series wins, including the one this year. It's been tough and frustrating and hard to defend at times being a Kings fan. I couldn't imagine two addition decades of that frustration.

So for Ron and the rest of the originals/early years crew, I hope the Kings wrap up the Blues on Sunday and give you guys the first ever sweep in team history and go on to win the cup. I don't want us to be the Chicago Cubs, but the only thing worse than bering the Cubs is being a fan of the Cubs, to forever watch the team but never see a championship.

To that extent, even more than for the guys like Ron, I am pulling for them to win this cup for Bob, the faithful play-by-play guy who has seen far to much poor play, losses and low finishes.

So for Ron and Bob, Go Kings Go!!!!!!
