  1. Robert e Lee says

    Thanks for a ton of great memories, Trevor Lewis. It seems sad how quietly a hero can disappear in to the night; but you are part of a select group of guys who brought L.A. a Stanley Cup…and then another one. And for those of us who never made it in to hockey-professionally-you brought us joy, as fans to see your hard work and dedication through many lean years and then through some grandiose years could pay off.

    I suspect, like most real Kings fans, we will forever remember that one play, replaying in our heads [over & over] for the rest of our lives. It was 2012, first round of the playoffs, and the series really could’ve gone either way. And you were pressin’ hard-in Game 5-and you picked Dan Hamhuis’ pockets and left him standing there-like the rest of the blow-hard/arrogant Vancouver Canucks’ fans. You managed to get the puck over to Jarrot Stoll who took a shot from the left side…and we won the game.

    I honestly believe it was the turning point in the series, the whole playoffs and a year later when you guys won it again. One play that changed a 45 year wait into a tearful celebration that might never end! Yup, I’ll miss you and won’t ever forget you. But I will forever thank you for your efforts and I hope you remain involved with the game after your work has ended-esp. here in L.A. Perhaps you can replace Evans or Fox when they retire? Afterall, the Miracle on Manchester is getting a bit warn…and I went to the next game and they did exactly what those years/teams were expected to do: THEY LOST!
