Seriously, the biggest insult is that the Kings will be going to the Stanley Cup Finals in a year where they barley had any business being in the playoffs in the first place.  For the past three years, the Sharks were expected to get far in the playoffs.  I’ll give them some credit: they made it to the Western Conference Finals for the second and third times in three seasons.  And despite this, the Sharks haven’t even been to the Stanley Cup Finals.  We will be the only Californian team who hasn’t been there.  This wouldn’t be so bad if Dean Lombardi just lived up to his reputation and continued to make terrible moves.
