What's your replay count up to?

I've watched game 6 at least 10 times at this point... almost in disbelief waiting for the ending to change. I've watched the other 15 Kings wins all at least twice.

At some point this probably becomes unhealthy. Who knows (or cares?) when that'll be.

Someone the other day came up to me and asked what it was like when I saw the Kings won the Cup, I felt like those players in the NHL ad that couldn't think of anything to say. I still can't believe it happened.

I had NHL Network on for the next day and a half so I saw it 7-8 times. Not having FSW I am missing out on more... just waiting for the Bob and Jimmy version to come out.

I purchased the entire six-game set for my Apple TV but have watched only parts of game 1 so far, I purchased it mostly for archive purposes.

I watched the entire CBC version last night and I must say it was head and shoulders above the NBC version. As a matter of fact, comparing it to the NBC telecast would be insulting to the CBC telecast. Jim Hughson, who I criticized during the Vancouver series, did a terrific job during the entire telecast, and his summary of L.A. Kings history right before he went silent at the 2:00 minute mark was masterful and well-researched...got to give him props. If you haven't seen it, go to the 2:04:30 mark of the video below...quite moving. Then going silent for the last two minutes is a stroke of genius. Guy knows drama.

haven't counted. whenever it's on i will watch, but at the same time i haven't watched it through in its entirety. i've got G6 on the DVR and was skipping through it again last night. the wife looked at me, "Again?"..... yep!

the last 10-minutes of that game i was in a serious fog and seriously don't really remember it. i was so friggin happy and at the same time bouncing emails, tweets, FB posts, etc. the last 10-minutes of the game seemed to last about 2-minutes to me when it happened.

when i watch it now it brings a small tear. at the time i was so happy i had perma-grin going for hours.

Funny how music plays a role in all of this. For the rest of my life every time I hear "Good Feeling" or "Party Rock Anthem" I'm going to immediately be reminded of the Kings Cup win.

From a life event perspective I'm sure it's right up there with remembering what songs you were listening to when your kids were born. There are just certain songs that immediately evoke a nostalgic reaction the moment they come on.

I watched all the games live, then scanned through each replayed game. I've watched game 6 quite a few times.

Anybody else go through a bit of a post-Stanley Cup traumatic stress issue? For about a week after the final game I'd wake up in the middle of the night stressing out that they were going to lose.

How ****ed up is that????

edit: re. the music - pretty much every time I hear "the Black Parade" I will think of the Cup run.

Quite the opposite for me...I have had many dreams since then of the Kings winning over and over.

It's not just that they did it...its HOW they did it that creates the illusion of a dream. Who could have predicted a 16-4 run and starting out every series with two road wins? (Then getting the third at home as well?)

Even Al Michaels commented on how this was a dream-like scenario playing out.

I know next season they are going to lose one of the first two games of a playoff series (at home or on the road), and I know that I am also going to be extremely disappointed at this.

I've watched it too many times to count. I've watched WCF game 5 quite a bit too. The segment I've watched a TON is the 5 minute major PP. I can't even tell you the emotional swing I had worrying about Scuds, then to score 3, I thought my lungs would give out I was screaming so hard. So I skip quite a bit to the PP in the 1st period.

I blame the CBC opening to game 2 for the Good Feeling association.

I've watched the first and third period of game 6 quite a few times, haven't counted. I only watch the CBC broadcast, I was able to record the replay from the NHL Network.

The replay on FSW last night was blacked out in Texas, probably because Center Ice ended after round 1. I haven't checked to see if the Kings Live episode recorded or not since I was asleep by the time it started.

And several times at Staples. The parade and Staples are where that song "stuck" for me.

Hah what sucks about that, is the crowd really didn't get any opportunity to really cheer Gagne because everyone was like holy crap, he almost dropped the Cup.

Wow, thanks for that. That was awesome. It is amazing how much better the sound is on the CBC broadcast. You get a much better sense of what it was like in the arena.

Bonus - I even caught a glimpse of myself in the crowd during the celebration

The last few minutes of the CBC broadcast of Game 6 is a must see if you haven't watched it yet. It is head and shoulders above the NBC broadcast.

Game 6, up to 3 times for the NBC feed, and I think 6 times for the CBC feed. CBC > NBC and its not even close.

I've watched our entire playoff run about 3 times now.

it does NOT get old. at all. ever.

And "Black Parade." If we won last year, our unofficial theme song probably would've benn "All I do is Win" since that song was played too many times on radio stations.

That happened to me, but before Game 6. I just couldn't sleep on that Sunday night. I didn't want to be negative but I just couldn't avoid thinking how the Kings could **** this up.

But now, I just keep reminding myself that the Kings are the Stanley Cup Champions!
