Maybe some people were just tired of waiting for the puck to drop.
Going by the generally nasty social media reaction to the Stanley Cup celebrations in Los Angeles, you’d have thought that the Kings had trotted out Gary Bettman wearing a Ducks jersey to justify the lockout and then had Snooki and Carl Lewis duet on the national anthem.
This is a new year. This is awful stop. I liked the Kings. This is ruining it. Stop. Stop. Stop. Stop.—

By the time the Kings banner-raising ceremony is over, we'll be a week into the playoffs.—

Looking forward to the Kings passing the Cup around again at both intermissions.—

Look, I’m normally the cranky cynic. My general demeanor ensured that my kids could both spell and properly use “curmudgeon” in a sentence by the time they were in Grade 2.
