When someone brought Dean the Cup on the ice you could tell that he was hesitant at first. And when he lifted it, he looked to the players and deflected all the attention back at them. I think he said something like "thank YOU guys" if I read his lips correctly. I'm assuming he wanted it to be a players moment.
And during Kings Live Bob and Jim were both called away from camera (Patrick O'Neil had to fill in), but I never saw them actually make it to ice level. Obviously they eventually got to lift it, but I was really hoping to see Bob lift it on the ice (not that I'm complaining )
It looked like in the full celebration video, Stoll had to hunt Lombardi down and then convince him to hold the Cup. Good for Stoll for doing that.
I'll reply back at peeps later. Right now, I'm on my phone but more dad and kid pics. It makes smile so much. I love these guys so much for the love and devotion, insant "Daddy" moments. As a Daddy's girl growing up, I'm close to busting with pride for the families. Quick posting the pic of his little girl watching herself? A father's love and pride at a time like this makes me want to keep cheering for them forever.
I've only seen him like 3 times since winning. The CBC coverage showed his booth where he is standing there dumbfounded and then gives everyone a hug, pretty calmly. Then I saw him lift the cup late in the celebrations for a moment, and then he was at the team picture, but otherwise has stayed away from the spot light and didn't appear to be in the locker room long or at all. I am sure we will have a massive interview soon enough. I can't wait to hear his reactions. Just for winning the damn thing he is instantly the most beloved Kings GM of all time, can't thank him enough for this moment.
In DL we trust Mind if I copy the avatar? I've been waiting for one of those....
Maybe not the most classy thing to post, but if someone can do it, big time LMAO.
Anyone willing to post a photoshop of Steve Bernier carrying the Cup on Wednesday?
If nothing else, the Kings owe him dinner.
Admittedly, I don't know how to photoshop. Hope the mods don't get elementary school principal like and delete this.
I agree. He has everything in perspective and that's how it should be. But she is freakin' adorable too!
As much as I love seeing the players skate around with the Cup, it's those moments you see them with their kids that melt my heart.
The fact my ovaries hurt watching them and the kids means so much because while I like kids, I'm not overly fond of them. They're good as long as they're other peoples. But watching Quick, Brown, and the various others that are popping up...it makes you realize how much these guys love their families. It's one thing to hear it. It's another to see the sheer absolute joy.
