Demers! Great read.

After 3,708 regular-season and playoff games, 592 players, 24 head coaches, 13 captains and eight general managers... the Kings finally got the job done.

Nersesyan was so excited after a summer that included a trade for Mike Richards that he laid down a $700 bet on the Kings to win the Stanley Cup an audacious play that would make McNall proud. With 25-1 odds, his payout stood at $17,500.
now that's pimp

What a classy move by the Kings organization to include Pete Demers as part of the celebration.

"Thats what life is all about it. To see my son drink from the Stanley Cup brought me to my knees. I cried when I hoisted the Cup over my head.


“I am so grateful to have had such a wonderful hockey career with so many highlights and great memories. We all know the game is about the players not about the trainers but tonight, so many of the players and staff said `Pete, enjoy it as you are a big part of this moment,’ which was kind of all of them.
