A regrettable, bold prediction...

Just wanted to let you Kings fans know that in the summer of 2007, I was talking hockey with a coworker and told him that I adamantly believed the Kings would win a Cup in the next 5 years on the shoulders of Quick and Kopitar. He laughed and called bull ****.

Little did I know that it would come back to bite the Devils in the ass.

That's okay. Your team kept the _ucks from getting their first title.

You're not alone - we predicted it too in a poll I posted years ago...can't find it now, maybe TonySCV can....he linked to it right before the playoffs started, I think.

A lot of the whiny kings fans would have agreed with your coworker. According to them, Kopitar was a passenger on the 1st line & Quick couldn't win the "big" games.

Heck, Mr. Irrelevant said the reason why both Brown & Kopitar fell in the draft was because they weren't winners.

Not going to happen until the team is re-built again is technically correct. The team when this poll was made is vastly different than the team that lifted the Cup (I'm searching for an angle here).

Keep searching.

That is true, but from day one Lombardi said what he was going to do and he did it and the Kings deservedly won the cup. Granted the path wasn't always smooth but it's been the same path.

I had 2013 in the poll, but this team always seems to do things a year before I expect them to get done. I was very surprised at the 6th place finish in 2009-2010.

I don't remember that being multiple choice...and I would have had the Kings winning with EVERY year they had marked in the poll...instead of me being a year early...
