^^This^^ Without a doubt. I went to one game each of the first three rounds (incl. game 4 against STL) and all three home games in the SCF. I got to sit right behind Bob and Nick's wives for game 6. After 20+ years as a fan, I would have really regretted not being there.

Maybe Mitchy being at the rally is the reason we're in a lockout now. Remember, when in doubt, blame Mitchrock!

I went to:
Games 3 & 4
Game 4 (saw the sweeeeep)
I was tapped out budget-wise for anymore games, it would have been beyond words to be there for Game 6, but I honestly thought they'd sweep them. Long story short, no regrets, as I made it home in time to watch the game with my then fiancÚ (got married sept 29th).

I got tickets for games 3 and 4 of the finals through a shared season ticket plan. They were added tickets that the official holders of the plan were allowed to get, so I had to pay more to sit upstairs than they did to sit downstairs. I was a little tempted to sell game four when I saw the tickets were going for a grand on StubHub, but I was not going to miss the Kings winning the Stanley Cup.
For game six, I was sitting at work refreshing Ticketmaster and StubHub all morning. Tickets would pop up and quickly disappear on Ticketmaster, but the Kings had jacked the prices up to five hundred dollars for the upstairs and the tickets would get taken while I was deciding whether to pay it or hope that the prices on StubHub would drop to an amount I was willing to pay. Every time the StubHub prices began to just get there, they went back up right before I was going to buy them. I did not get much work done. Finally, at one or two or whatever was almost the last possible second was, I remember that I was not going to miss the Kings winning the Stanley Cup, said f' it, and made myself poor.
Best five hundred dollars I ever spent.

I had tickets to game 4 and game 6. Paid about $600 for both game 4 tickets.. could have sold them for over $2000 but I went and we lost, but I rejoiced when I was at game 6. I put every penny on credit card. I didn't have the money but I bought the tickets before even asking for time off and drove 1000 miles to watch them hoist it. You gotta do what you gotta do man. I wouldn't worry about it though. That game was almost of spiritual quality (I'm not a religious person whatsoever) Like Bob said, "This is for all Kings fans, past and present." You were there, don't worry. Seeing them raise the cup wasn't my favorite part but seeing the smiling faces all around me. That was the best part. If anything I regret not taking my wife to game 6 but I asked her, "game 4 or game 6?" and she said 4... I went with my stepdad (he paid for his own ticket) to game 6.. I don't feel insanely terrible though as she's only been a fan for this 1 season (wouldn't have meant as much to her I don't think).
Did anybody else notice the TREMENDOUS difference in the 'air' between game 4 and game 6? That was astounding.

I was fortunate enough to go to most of the playoff games, and games 3+4 of the Final. Alas I wasn't able to go to game 6, but honestly I have no regrets. Would I have liked to have been there? Sure! Am I bummed I wasn't? Not really.

Absolutely no regrets. I could have made a huge profit had I sold one game, but I didn't.
However, if I did have to nitpick.. I honestly didn't have a good feeling about Game 4 against Phoenix (that whole Amgen tour was stupid to begin with) and Game 4 against NJ.
Had I sold both those games, knowing we would have lost anyway... it would have been perfect. =P But at the same time though, we were up freaking 3-0 in every series. That was nuts and even though I didn't have a good feeling, I could not have passed up a chance to see them sweep.

I would do it all over again a hundred times over again over again. Again.
