The Los Angeles Kings announced that they’ll celebrate their 2014 Stanley Cup victory with a parade on Monday.

The team laid out a schedule of events and a brief description of the parade route:

This will be the official parade to celebrate the 2014 NHL Stanley Cup Champion LA Kings. The parade will begin at 5th and Figueroa and will head south to the STAPLES Center. Following the parade, there will be a Season Ticket Member Rally which is set to start at approx. 1:00pm.

Here are questions we really want answers to, though:

  • Will Jonathan Quick drop some f-bombs when he gets on the microphone again?
  • How many playoff beards will be intact? There’s a full weekend for wives, girlfriends and concerned family members to talk them out of keeping bushy facial hair.
  • How many people will show up? It’s a Monday, so the attendance could be pretty fantastic. On the other hand, last time was the Kings’ first ever championship.
  • Will Darth Vader show up again?

        There have been many high points for the Canucks, such as:
        – The President’s Trophy
        – the other President’s Trophy
        – That one time they actually handled goalie trades well (trading for Luongo and somehow getting the Kings to give up picks for Dan freaking Cloutier)
        – Having the privilege of an all-time great name like Sergio Momesso play for them.

        Sure, they technically haven’t won a Cup, but they definitely riot like champions, so let’s give them the credit they’re due.

      Its a shame for such a great team that the parade could be held in a phone booth !

      been a fan of the Kings since ’73 Cornelius, so speak for yourself, eh ?

      nucks-
      More like “The rest of the NHL is now aware of how big a hockey town L.A. has been for many years.” Your ignorance of the hockey scene in L.A. is understandable, since the Kings haven’t done much until recently. Even though they had the greatest of all time on the roster for eight years and went to the finals in ’93, the past three years have seen what a well-built team can do.

      From Arash Markazi, ESPLA (http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nhl/story/_/id/11068864/los-angeles-kings-fans-realize-special-s):

      “It has been an amazing reversal of fortune for long-suffering Kings fans who have always remained loyal to their team. They are outliers in a city known for being fair-weathered and fickle when it comes to its sports teams. They are far from your clichéd L.A. sports fans who arrive to games late, leave early and believe their team is entitled to a championship regardless of who is on the roster.

      “They get to downtown two hours before game time, stay two hours afterward and never truly think a game is in hand until the final horn. Oh, and when the Kings come back home with a trophy on their plane, thousands of fans gather to greet them at the airport in the middle of the night.

      “It’s the kind of bond between a team and its fans you might experience in a smaller market but has always separated Kings fans from their peers in this city.

      “Ask the bartenders at L.A. Live and the ushers at Staples Center who the most rabid, loyal and altogether crazy fans in Los Angeles are, and they will tell you it’s Kings fans before you can even finish your question.

      “Los Angeles has proven that you don’t necessarily need to be a “hockey town” to have great hockey fans.

      “They have experienced enough disappointment over the years to appreciate what the last three years have meant. Sometimes you don’t realize the good old days were the good old days until they’re over but that’s not the case with Kings fans. They realize what’s happening right now is special and no matter what happens in the future, they’ll always have this moment.”

      If you’re going to disparage the team (and its fans) that bumped your President’s Trophy-winning, underachieving, #1 seed from the playoffs two years ago, you really need to come up with something better than that thin crap.

        Congratulations to the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings and their fans. The best team definitely won!

      The more bandwagon fans the better. The NHL and the Kings need more followers. More importantly I have Kings season tickets and would love to make a few bucks selling tickets to them.

    Actually the highlight of the 2012 win was Jonathan Quick’s little girl, who bopped around the room like a fairy princess during Sutter’s presser….absolutely classic.
