Of course we are happy for all of them and ourselves. But if I had to pick three it would be the three who have been through thick and thin together and you could see the connection they had in their joy of winning together.
When they celebrated on the ice together they all went for each other right away. Its like everyone else was next, but not first. you know?

I've got three. At the top of the list I am going with Bob Miller. Like so many of us he has suffered along with this team over the years. To see him finally get to see the Kings win was really a great moment.
As far as players I look at Kopi and Brown. Both these guys were the start of the rebuild, and had suffered through bad times with the team. I still remember how excited I was about Kopi after he scored his first two goals against the Ducks. I see these two guys as being the ones that this entire (and often painful) rebuild were based around.

I was happiest for all of them, Brown aside since I knew he would get the cup first I really looked forward to Kopi getting it. After that I really don't remember waiting in particular for anyone to get it, I was just excited by the whole thing.

Honestly, we could go through every player, every Manager, every coach, every employee, every fan, every member of the Kings media/marketing group and there would be a great story.
The reason? It all ends up with the team winning the Cup.
It is still so shocking to me. I have the team pic with the cup as my screen saver and everyday when I walk in and see it, I am dumbfounded by the feeling of awe...almost like a confusion. The "seriously? That really happened?" moment everyday.
