Let’s be honest here for a second.
The LA Kings have Jonathan fuckin’ Quick. He struggled at times this year but most nights, you’re not scoring more than 2 on this guy. (Bernier who?)
The unstoppable bromance of Mike Richards and Jeff Carter. (Mike Richards, the guy who did this.)
Drew Doughty, the cornerstone defensemen that all Stanley Cup winners have. (see: Keith, Chara, Letang, Lidstrom, Niedermayer, etc.)
A pissed off Marian Gaborik playing against his former team that didn’t want him.
Also, they have Selke Finalist, Anze Kopitar, Mr. 25pts in 26 playoff games, Justin Williams, and Captain Dustin “I’ll Crush The Life Out of You” Brown.
Oh, and everyone else on the team can pretty much play and grind the crap out of you. This team runs four lines deep.
Came back down 3-0 against the notorious chokers in Joe Thornton and the San Jose Sharks. Beat the Ducks in 7. Beat the Blackhawks, the defending champions in OT of GAME 7. This was one of the craziest and toughest runs to the Stanley Cup Finals. We’re being honest for a second right? New York had no chance.
Congratulations to the LA Kings.
