I live in "Leafsnation" but I have been a fan since the mid 80's probably around the time Simmer was dealt to Boston and Bernie Nicholls began establishing himself with the Kings.
Something about watching games on HNIC from the dimly lit Great Western Forum and the seeing those purple and gold uniforms had me hooked not to mention seeing guys like Dionne, Taylor, Fox, etc.
Also, always opening a pack of OPC hockey and when I got a King I would put it aside from the pile of the rest of the cards.
There obviously have been a lot of tough years as any King fan would know and especially the ones that have followed this team longer so a Cup win would be special. The 1993 ride was great especially beating the Leafs in 7 but this year does not compare to that one, it just feels different and this team is a better one then the 93' edition.
Right now I am just enjoying the ride. GO KINGS GO!
