LA Kings Parade 2012: Stars Who Will Captivate Fans During Celebration

There are a number of L.A. Kings players that have the ability to captivate fans during the parade, and it would seem that the partying has just begun. The Stanley Cup playoffs are a grind, and now that it is over the players can relax and let off some steam.
