My rep says there will be 4000 sent to Team LA store but not sure if in time for the game tonight. We were going to go at lunch and buy them but the Team LA store said they have none. Hopefully those going tonight can get some.

My advice to you all (including out of area/out of staters) is DO NOT GET SUCKED INTO PANIC BUYING! It sounds like more are on the way, and the good people on this site will do their best to get rings for everyone who is unable to. DO NOT APPEASE THE LEACHES ON E-BAY!!! Let them sweat it out and when no one pays over-the top prices in bidding wars, the prices will drop. It is a cool souvenir to have, for sure, but if you are patient, I'm absolutely confident there are enough to go around. They are relatively inexpensive to make, Kings Care is making good money for charity off of them, so I am guessing there will be another production order. I would also suggest contacting Team LA to make them available online for purchase as well. NO ONE here should have to pay more than $25-$30 for the ring + postage. Just remember that when you see e-bay sellers starting at $50.00+ and getting you to bite into a bidding war with someone else.
I am seeing some of these people on E-Bay and it is upsetting. I know it happens all the time and it is capitalism in action, but it's still bullsh## to me. Also reading about the stories of people trying to stock up on them at the game for resale... ~$25 to Kings Care is more than a fair price for a replica ring with that money going to charity. So don't go thru E-Bay! (my opinion of course). I don't have a game on my mini-package until Detroit on 2/27, but if there are still rings to be had then, I would be willing to buy a few for you out-of-towners.
As far as Season Ticket Holders (that sucks, JW), I would go to the head of Ticket Sales (is that Kelly Chessman still?) and voice your displeasure. I don't think that's fair at all...
Above all... Patience, Kings fans...
GO KINGS GO!

I just called Team LA and they they told me that they have yet to receive the shipment of rings. I also asked if they would sell them before they closed their doors at 5PM and they said that they are not allowed to even if they got their shipment before 5PM.... so it seems that they are only allowing people with tickets for tonight to purchase them when the doors open at 630. I'll try my best to get rings for chaingunsofdoom, bodycheck, gokingsgo25, CooLz, borinka99. I'll keep y'all updated.

if i had season seats and didn't get this ring, i'd be irritated as well, but they were pretty stingy with handing these out from the get go. we asked if my daughter (who was with us) could have one and they said "only one per ticket". so by not giving them to most STHs who couldn't show up, i'm assuming it's because they assume someone else took/bought your seat and took your ring and that was what was allotted to your ticket. i have no idea though. we ended up getting 2 rings, my husband wanted his own for his office and i was going to keep mine for the house. instead, my mom wants one so we'll just share the one we have. i'm not going to be at staples any time soon and i don't really have to get someone to get me another that bad. it just would've been nice if my daughter could've had one. she keeps saying "i don't have a stanley cup ring", but oh well, she'll be ok.
