There's 2 things I really like about this ring. 1 being the bowl part of the Stanley Cup, it's not the usual diamond filled bowl shape. It looks like the actual bowl with the wavy lines, small touch but I like it. 2 being my favorite part, the font for "Stanley Cup Champions" is the same font the Kings use for their word markings. Again, something small but it adds a much more personal Kings touch to it.

Needs a bit of colour. I am not a fan of championship rings in any sport, it's like they all try to out-gaudy each other.

I'm okay with our boys getting any Stanley Cup ring, but I can't say it's too sharp looking. Eh.

It's not the best lighting in that photo. There's a lot of glare on the logo. If it were taken without so much light reflecting off the front it will look much better.

I've seen THIS one posted on the internet as well ?



So the one ZAD posted MIGHT be the one they're handing out for the promotion ?

That's a photoshop version. Look at how the diamonds are cut in half alongside the logo.

Definitely seems that way. The black paint should be a dead giveaway

Though that ring is also not the real one as the shield is photoshopped onto an old ring design. We will see, confirm, and update it on opening night when we view it for the first time

Also, according to someone on Zad's blog, Jostens didn't win the bid, and the rings are being made by someone else. Something to watch for...

Looks much better seeing the real thing. The other one may have been a real ring, but the photo made it look cheap.

Also did you guys see Bailey's ring?

Helene's article in the Times this am said Leiweke gave rings to Dionne and Vachon. Nice.

I came in through the Star Plaza entrance yesterday. Leiweke was just past the metal detectors, with his ring. He was letting fans put it on & take their picture with it.
I'll be honest, I'm not much of a fan of his, but that was cool of him.

What no love for Dave Taylor? He did more to bring the Cup to LA than those two beloved Kings. There'd be no Cup without Kopitar, Brown and Quick

The black clearly should have been black diamonds. Stupid Anschutz being so cheap!

Well we don't know that. Maybe he gave it to them because they were there that night, and Taylor might get his later.

There's no changing that now.
Penner tweeted the same one..i think it's ligit.
