So little significance a guy who won 3 Cups decided to keep a puck from a losing effort? If there was no significance to it, why the hell would ANY player from a losing squad want a memento like that? Particularly a guy who has won it before multiple times. Yeah... no significance at all. Makes total sense.

The Kings have kept the puck used at the end of every series win to eventually display to commemorate their first ever Cup win, so there is some significance to the Kings to finding it.

Elias is a smart guy. He's won 3 Cups. He knew what he was doing. He got some charity money out of the deal. Good for him.

I lol'd at this response to that twitter message: "Did Ryane Clowe grab it from the bench?"
No, he only touches the puck from the bench.

Look some people take it seriously some dont. I took it seriously. The organization wanted it because when the game ended for our First cup. That was the puck in play. Some think its a cute joke. I just wanted it, and i got more upset when i found out Luc was really upset. Because everybody loves Luc.

People have different opinions on the matter. Its what makes forums so fun. The best thing is to not take everything so seriously. Elias is a butt though. its fair enough.

The Kings wanted the puck and deserve it. It doesn't matter if other fans don't understand. I don't expect them too.

I agree with you 100%, that's fine.

What I'm saying (and people either arent understanding or are intentionally ignoring) is that it's disingenuous for people to act like it's normal for Stanley Cup Championship teams to keep the last puck that was laying on the ice from the winning game.

It's not!

But somehow this "controversy" was created that the puck was "stolen" - as if it's common for SCC teams to keep non-winning game pucks. It's not common...... and they dont. That's my point.

It was stolen, if it wasn't who would choir boy lie about it? Stop being such a homer.

It took me 30 seconds to find one example...

This is a pretty silly thing for you to be coming on the team board to complain about, don't you think?

So he took the puck as a laugh. Didnt think it was a big deal and when he saw it was a big deal, he relented and gave it back. No big deal. Hope to have the same problem in 360 days.

Do you keep the winning puck from the few Stanley Cup clinching OT games? Yes. Absolutely. 100%. No questions asked.

But WTH ever heard of keeping the last puck that just happened to be on the ice in a game that was decided long before the whistle? Like it's some sort of common practice? Exactly.

There's no historical significance to it from any other puck used in the game. In fact, it's even less historically significant than any of the Kings goal scoring pucks that night.
I see your point, but does that make it any more appropriate for Elias to keep it? That since the puck was essential meaningless in your opinion, that it was ok for someone to steal it?

I highly doubt Luc was really upset.

Once returned, Luc turned the puck over and saw a post-it on the other side saying "Please don't sign my buddy Zach. Yours, - P"

In every series clinching game the Kings have the puck that was on the ice at the end.The only puck missing was the one THAT MEANT THE MOST taken by the losing team! Get it?

It's actually pretty common. There has been the same controversy in the past.

He knew exactly how big a deal it was or he would not have taken it, carried it with him to the locker, put it in his bag and took it home. I just really hope his intentions were not to sell it. I'd rather him take it for spite.

What i love is how we have people in here saying "oh whats the big deal" "he saw an opportunity for his charity, good for him"
Seriously? The dude LIED that he didnt know where it was. Then he bribes the Kings to give to his charity so they can get the puck. What kind of charity lets someone like that speak on their behalf? This whole situation is flat out wrong. Elias has lost respect for the game that pays him quite handsomely. And in turn, should lose alot of respect from fellow players and fans. What he did at first is akin to my 5 year old. Then he followed that up with some mob action.
I dont think Gretz was far off.....and it still holds true....."Mickey Mouse Organization".
You want to argue this point of view? Then your morals are in question. And i dont give a **** if it was for charity. Makes nothing right.

At the game, I noticed something that intrigued me, never saw it before (because the only celebrations I had seen before were on TV).

The referees stayed on the ice, all the way up to the Cup presentation. (I did not notice if they were still on the ice after the Cup was presented to Brown, as I watching the players celebrate.) They were all together, off to the side, just observing.

It seems to me that this incident may set a new protocol, where one of the referees or linesman are tasked with collecting the game puck at the end of the game. I mean, if they are going to be there anyway, why not?

Actually, they have been instructed to NOT touch the puck at the end of a cup clinching game. The linesman is the one that collected the OT game winner in the Hawks game and the puck hasn't been seen since.
