    According to some religious people, dinosaurs walked the earth only a few thousand years ago and they were on Noah's Arc.

    The 2012 Kings went 16-4 to win The Cup.

    In 1988, Edmonton went 16-2 to win The Cup.

    Oops. I'm not really much of a stat guy. I thought I'd read somewhere that they were tied for 1st at 16-4.

    Now that it's all over I can admit that, for me, beating Chicago (game 7 OT in Chicago) felt better than winning the 2nd Cup. Maybe I was just emotionally spent by the time the Final rolled around or maybe I just had so little regard for New York that the series felt so anti-climatic.

    **** it felt good to see Chicago and their fanbase finally eat ****.

    Was there really any doubt that the Kings would be the Rangers? Sure, they made it harder than it had to be but that was their playoff mantra this year. As soon as the Kings beat Chicago, I knew they'd be hanging up a second banner in October.

    This is key. The Kings were content with treading water for nearly 2/3rds of every game vs. NYR. That's the only reason the games were close. When they decided to play hard they were head and shoulders better than the Rangers. It's like they were just toying with them.

    That's only because "triplcrown" phrased most of that stuff in terms of "first ever to do blah blah." For most of them, it would have been better to say things like "most games played by a team to reach the SCF," "most games played by a Cup winner," etc. That and the notion that the first team to win a league's championship necessarily set more records than any subsequent team is illogical (particularly in the case of the Stanley Cup: 1893 Stanley Cup championship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). On the other hand, "triplcrown" is admittedly just basing this on memory, so.... I recall someone created a thread that listed all of the records the 2012 team set, and I recall it being much longer than this list.

    Plenty of teams played fewer games before the playoff format went to four best of seven series following the 1986-87 season.

    I agree with you - I think most knew that whoever scored in game 7 OT of our series would win the cup. NY Rangers were just happy to be there in an overall weak eastern conference. The real series of the playoffs was the one our 2 teams played. The SCF was kinda anti-climatic given all the other series that went 7 games.

    16-0 wins the cup just as 16-12. You don't have to sail through with the best playoff record in history to prove you are a good team. As long as you win the cup who cares how you got there.
