    A backup is still a part of the team. Every player in the team gets the Cup, when they win it.

    Thanks for the black and white. I get that. Owners get their name on the cup as well.....so did they win the cup?
    He didn't really win it.

    Owners are different from players. Can't you notice that or are you too myopic to notice anything?

    Might as well have a goalie board on the net.

    Gotta win regular season games to get into the post season to at least have a shot of winning the cup. Fleury was the starter in PIT for years. Murray got hot in 16 at the right time and they rode him (Fleury was also injured at the time). Don't forget in 17 he won 2 of the 4 series. While he may not have been the guy in net the night they won't the cup, he was a big contributor to all 3 cups.

    That's true, but correlation does not imply causation. I don't think that the fact that they hit everything and were competitive was because the one caused the other, but because both stemmed from coming out with determination and effort (because of being on home ice and down in the series). Nothing says that the only way to come out with determination and effort is to spend all of your energy hitting the other team, though.

    If you're comparing the 2012-14 Kings that came in waves to this version, obviously the difference is striking, but there was also a striking difference between the 2012-14 and 2015-17 Kings, even though they were all Sutter teams. I'm comparing Stevens' team to Sutter's 2015-17 teams and seeing more similarities than differences. It's still defensive; it still relies on dumping and chasing, rather than carrying the puck into the zone; it still relies heavily on support and production from defensemen; it still uses its best players to kill penalties; it still has major problems with creating offense, and so on.

    Good luck in the 2nd round Vegas. I don’t know how far the Knights can go but what a story.

    Yeah, it's all a conspiracy. The agreement that had to be signed between Bettman and the Raiders for this elaborate ruse is hidden under Area 51.

    In 3 cup appearances he rose the pine once.... '16.

    He was 100% responsible for the 09 cup as far as being the goaltender.

    And 17 he split 50% of the work.

    Your comment whether intentional or not makes it seem like he was just riding pine for all 3 cups. That is false.

    Not saying he is ROY JR. Because as a pens fan I'm well aware of his playoff meltdowns. But he had a fairly big hand in 2 out of his 3 cups.

    The 1.5 means he did half the work during 3 cup runs. 1 full run, 0 of a run and half of another.

    Cant wave off the half one either, because without him we lose to Washington last year.

    This... only I also add that last year he split duties winning the CBJ series and WSH series.

    Then won a game in Ottawa before dropping one and then Muzz was finally healthy and took back over for the remainder of the ECF and SCF.

    But make no mistake MAF had a big hand in us winning last yr as well.

    Yes, he truly deserved to touch the Stanley Cup in 2017.

    If Vegas can get a sweep that's a big big plus in the cup playoffs, rest is gold in this grind.

    These type of fans crack me up. "My team won because they are better! You all and your conspiracy theories! For shame!"
    All majot sports are fixed to some degree. It's As Above, So Below. If world cup and soccer are fixed, the biggest sport in the world, you can damn well bet hockey is rigged to a degree as well.

    You Vegas fans can keep your butt ending Haula Hooper's, your axe swinging midget, your overhyped flower, your whining coach....and your refs.
