It was classless because it was game 3... I don't care who did it, ceremonial puck drops are for the opening game not the ones in the middle.

You guys might have to change your tone on that tonight when we supposedly are going to have a couple of national guard members drop the puck lol.

And really, who cares anyway? A puck drop ceremony takes thirty seconds at most. If Gretzky wasn't cheered on the ice, they'd show him on the jumbotron and cheer him then anyway.

Let #99 drop the pucks in games 5, 6 and 7 as well. I am sure he jinxed the Kings on Wednesday, maybe it can be done again and again and again.

Wow, seriously guys.

The Giants and Jets bring former players for the coin toss at big games. The Yankees get HOF'rs to throw out the first pitch before playoff games. Gretzky was invited to drop the puck by the Kings because he's the greatest player to ever wear a Kings uniform and NHL uniform. Don't blame the Kings for being "classless" for a stupid 5 second puck-drop before a finals game. Blame the Devils and Lou for not honoring their own HOF'r in Stevens before Game 1 with a ceremonial puck drop. That's on them not the Kings.

I thought it was dumb and a waste of time. I mean, it was game 3 and the series was well under way at that point. But whatever, at this point they should just get to the game. I don't want anything delaying the game starting, its hard enough to wait as it is.

Holy overreaction batman..Threecups' suggestion was innocent enough.

I'd love to see Stevens drop the puck. Because the Devils should celebrate their legacy in the NHL. Would definitely fire up the fans to see #4 walk out there.

Wow, some of you need to take the homer glasses off.
Wayne dropped the puck because it was THE FIRST LAK SCF GAME @ HOME IN ABOUT 20 years!

It took 5 seconds.

Now if it was NEids, Dano, or Scotty ask yourself if we would still be having this conversation?

This is a significant moment for LA, and yes Wayne is a part of that - it also represents growth of the game - all of that is good for both the NHL and NJ as well.

Get over it. "Classless" - is when you can't see beyond what affects your own team.

Not to mention that Dan Marino dropped the first puck at game 1 Devils-panthers. These types of classless acts got me so incensed that I was going to write a letter. ThenI realized that I actually didn't care and went on with the rest of my life.

The term "class" is the most over used word in fandom. LA Kings twitter tweets a jab at NJ, "CLASSLESS ORGANIZATION!" Jonathan Quick embellishes, "CLASSLESS PLAYER!!" Bailey the King of the Jungle hold of Jersey Shore heads, "CLASSLESS MASCOT!!" we all need to lighten up. As for the original post, I'd love to see Scott drop the puck. The crowd would go wild!

Exactly, well put.

There are other franchises in the NHL you know.

.....and they like to take a brief moments to honor their traditions or history as well. Is it really all that bad?

Maybe we could go a step further, and have Stevens drop Gretzky :)


Oh yea, now you're talking!

It doesn't take any time. Zach has to stand for 5 extra seconds, not the end of the world. I wouldn't mind seeing this every game of the finals if you had enough good players. We could do Scotty, Nieds, Dano, and maybe Sarge since he has 3 Cups.
