I'm a fan of any team beating the Red Wings.

The fact that they beat a team crippled by injuries as the pinnacle of the last 18 years is so sad on so many levels ...

... It is! With Yzerman and Shanahan healthy, the Kings might have been swept again. But no one felt sorry for the Kings this postseason without Kopitar. It's just the way it goes.

I disagree.

The Kings proved they belonged by playing the Avs to a grueling 7 game series.

That Avs team was arguably the most talented roster since the Pens of the early 90's.

The sad part was the summer after this series. Davey Taylor really crapped the bed and the fall from grace started. The series against Detroit and Colorado have basically been the highlight of the organization this millennium.

That is true. Right after this success, the Kings let Luc Robitaille go, to Detroit of all places, and see him rightfully lift the Cup. In his absence, the Kings scramble to sign Steve Heinze (oh and Randy Robitaille as well).

Taylor did make a bold move in acquiring Jason Allison for Jozef Stumpel and Glen Murray, but the team lacked the depth and balance that they had during the 2000-01 playoffs.

At the conclusion of the 2001-02 season, Heinze looked like a bust, Randy Robitaille was done away with, and the Kings would let another significant UFA get away in Philippe Boucher.

Since this is a nostalgia thread, and the draft is near, why not bring up this blast from the past?

Closing another chapter in a sorry history of drafting and developing players, the Kings traded defenseman Aki Berg to the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday for center Adam Mair and a second-round draft pick in June.

The Kings chose Berg third in 1995--ahead of Jarome Iginla and Petr Sykora, among others--but became disenchanted with his inconsistency. He played 47 games this season and had four points, 43 penalty minutes and a plus-three defensive rating.
