Winners and Losers of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs
USA TODAY Sports

The Stanley Cup playoffs yield one winner and 15 losers, at least in the case of teams.

The Los Angeles Kings are the one true king of the NHL, having dispatched the New York Rangers in five games to win a second championship in three seasons. It's also their second championship in the past two 82-game seasons, making them the first team to "repeat" in that regard since the Red Wings won in 1997 and 1998.

But that doesn't mean there aren't individuals who emerged as winners and losers from these playoffs.

Which unrestricted free agents increased or hurt their value? Which rookies showed they are ready for an increased role next season?

All these questions and more will be answered as you dance through this slideshow like Drew Doughty through the Rangers defense.
