Not sure if anyone is watching the Kings/Chi pregame. Typically, the year after you win a cup only the banner is raised, then the game starts.

The Kings, in their marketing wizardry are parading the cup around the rink, handing it off to each player so their fans can see it (won the cup in NJ).

As we all know, you only touch the cup when you win it, they won it last year, its not their cup this year. I think its actually bothering some of the players, bc they don't look happy about it (as they are a supersticious bunch).

Hahahah...

After they don't do anything this year, I don't think that parading the cup will happen again! haha..

It belongs to them until someone takes it away from them and that doesn't happen until the playoffs.

They still are the champions till the next season starts, 12:30. So they can touch it, rub it, lick it, kiss it, or whatever they want with it till then. Heck there is no curse.

Hah. That's a pretty safe bet, considering they have a 1/30 chance of winning. In fact, that's a pretty safe bet for ANY team.

I don't know why the players would want to do that again. Doesn't seem like it would be quite as exciting as when they first got it.

Not sure if you can say there's no curse. There's two weird incidents that possibly resulted in the Rangers not having a cup from 1940 to 1994.

From Wikipedia: Curse of 1940


During the 1939–40 season, the mortgage on the Rangers' home arena, the third Madison Square Garden (built in 1925), was paid off. Hence, the management of the Madison Square Garden Corporation symbolically burned the mortgage in the bowl of the Cup. This led some hockey fans to believe that the Cup, which is regarded almost as a sacred object, had been "desecrated," leading the "hockey gods" to place a curse on the Rangers.[1]
Another theory is that the supposed curse came from Red Dutton, the coach and general manager of the New York Americans, for whom he had once played. The Amerks were actually the first NHL team to play in New York City, beginning play as soon as the Garden opened for the 1925–26 season. However, their original owner, bootlegger Bill Dwyer, found the going difficult with the end of Prohibition, and the NHL took over ownership of the team in 1937. They made five playoff appearances, including a quarterfinal loss to the Rangers in 1928–29 and a quarterfinal win over the Rangers in 1937–38. However, after beating the Rangers, the Amerks fell to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Chicago Black Hawks in the 1938 semifinals, the closest they ever came to winning the Cup.
Following the 1941–42 season, many NHL players entered the armed forces to fight in World War II. This hurt the Americans more than the other teams, and so Dutton announced his team would suspend operations for the duration of the war.[2] He was named NHL President upon the death of Frank Calder in 1943, a post he held until 1946, when he resigned and was replaced by Clarence Campbell.[3]
Dutton had resigned the league presidency with the intention of reviving the Amerks. However, the league, with the encouragement of Garden management, reneged on a longstanding promise to allow the Amerks to return. A bitter Dutton declared that the Rangers would never win the Cup for as long as he lived. He died in 1987 at 88.[3] At that time, the Rangers were in their 47th season without having won the Cup.
Depends on how superstitious you are.

lol at you. Cup belongs to LA Kings until someone takes it from them. Until then they can parade it around in my front yard if they like. They deserve it and they own it.

And another thing. There are no such things as tooth faeries, curses, magic spells etc etc

Yes, they cursed themselves. Even if they lose today thats just ONE game. We canucks fans shouldn't even be talking, we have yet to win a cup either way.

Wrong...that implies a team has to beat them in the finals for them to not be the champions any more..Which in fact, is not true.

You realize they don't roll a thirty-sided die to determine the winner, right? If you think the odds are one in thirty across the board, then you're saying Columbus has as good a chance as the Canucks.

Well, they were correcting you (and they were right), so that would imply that you aren't very old either.

Once the pucks drops in the first game (after the ceremony) the Kings are no longer champions.

They were 2011-12 champs, this is 12-13, defending champs yes.


Although in regards to the OP, They won it at home and every team brings the cup out and kisses it in the banner raising, Boston did it last year too, I thought it was cool they way they handed it around the rink for all the fans to see, I think you are overreacting to it.
