02:02 PM ET 06.12 | The Los Angeles Kings may have fallen short in their pursuit of a second consecutive Stanley Cup, but Dustin Brown wants to bring the entire team back next year and to give it another shot. He thinks that their failures this season will only make them a better team and that the Kings don't need much in the way of upgrades. "Experience is one thing, but experiencing it all together is much more valuable ... What you want to build on is that group of guys that stick together, because at the end of the day, that's all you have to lean on when times get tough." General manager Dean Lombardi echoed Brown's statements so it looks like the Kings' captain will get his wish.

He saw all the trouble Jake and Elwood had putting it back together.

When you don't win the big enchilada you can expect changes. They're absolutely necessary to prevent stagnation.

Good Teams can stay together as long as no one Malkins the payroll.

Chiarelli essentially kept the same B's team together, after they were bounced by the Caps in the first round last year. Now they are back in the finals again after having won the Cup in 2011.

Might be better to use said cash to buy a hooker instead.

C or snot - he's about the most expendable - only a wee bit more than the hatchet guy - on this team . He don't fight near enough to be a tough-guy, and never has impressed past the 50 point mark. Might be time for PrEteNNdER, or, OO-OO-Mr Kotter to step to be the big C.

Penner is UFA, but Carter sure came prepared this season.
