It's simply because we've dropped....

We beat them in a playoff series two years ago. The last couple of years have been rough, but we haven't dropped THAT much when you look at the bigger picture.

I'm not talking about "right now". I mean, in terms of the 2012 series or in general, when Rangers-Devils games are being played, throughout the season, etc. It's embarrassing, in general, that our governor and his family are Rangers fans.

 

He barely got any press and hardly said a peep about it in 2012 when they played each other.  Now you are just looking for something to hate him about.

Hometown - Toms River NJ

Current City - Emerson NJ

 

now that's the stuff that boils my blood

 

Ask any of those idiots if they remember Darren Turcotte and they will have a blank expression on their faces.  Apparently the Rags franchise history goes from 1926 to 1940, then they suspended operations until about 1992 or 1993 when they rose from the dead and became champions of the world.

C'mon, please don't act so shocked that Devils fans are pissed at our already polarizing governor for being a Rangers fan. I'm not even a Yankees fan, but I think it's pretty funny (and worthy of derision) that Bill DeBlasio is a Red Sox fan, so I guess you can say I'm consistent on the issue.

 

I mean, you can always pull the "it's just sports" card, but yeah, these politicians are opening themselves to criticism.

And I'm saying Christie would have also gotten criticized for cheering for the Devils when he has been a lifelong Rags fan.  Basically he is in a catch 22.  He chose to stick with his guns which at least to me lesser of 2 evils (even though he cheers for an awful team).

 

Those who are hating on Christie for sticking with his Rags are the ones who already have some issue with him.

I got to thinking the rags have been in teh playoffs more often than not for the past few years. Despite changing the team completly 2 years ago. They have very few players that I would want on the devils (mcdonaugh and that's it, although zucarrello seems like a great player). How can they manage to always make the playoffs, what core part of there team drives them.

 

We all hate on lunqvist he's been the primary constant, and I actually do believe he's overrated, but is it him?

What makes this team tick that they make it to the playoffs year in and out right now.

 

One thing to keep in mind is how mediocre the former Atlantic, current Metropolitan Division has become in just a couple years. And yes, Devils have a role in this as well, considering how many years we were at the top of the Atlantic Division (and where we now are).

 

Devils, Flyers, Capitals (slowly the past few years), even the Senators or Carolina, are all previously good or decent teams that have downgraded. Penguins are really the only "good" team in our division and whether or not they'd finish in a 3rd place or wildcard spot in either of the Western divisions is debatable. That Columbus could make the playoffs this year, or the Islanders last year, and that the Devils came relatively close to making the playoffs shows how below-par our division has become. It's simply not that hard to make the playoffs in our division, and the Rangers, roster-wise, are on the higher end of a pretty lackluster group of teams in the Metro.

 

So that being said, even the Rangers' team of Lundqvist and perennially underachieving guys like Nash or Richards or this year's Martin St-Louis or then Gaborik (or whoever the year's "guy" is each particular year) is better than Capitals or Flyers or Devils teams lately that have major holes in their roster. These Rangers teams have enough to "just get in" and not do much.

 

Our division blows.

I meant we haven't qualified for the playoffs, which opens a slot for the Rags to get in

i see christie a lot lately down at the shore and he recently made another "open for business" press conference and made comment that hes gonna be here all summer and he brings people with him wherever he goes, some he likes and some he doesnt like.  Ok news flash christie, your that fvcking guy! A benny in charge of rebuilding the boardwalk empire. This county voted him into office; so much corruption here and no news gets out and none even care.

 

to keep it hockey related yes i hate him cause hes a rags fan but mostly cause he failed at the lap band.

 

how there is no news coming from out of here is a crime in itself...fvcking rags

Interesting to see the Habs taking it to Boston like they have so far. I honestly thought Boston would steamroll them.

Subban got away with murder knocking the goal off obviously on purpose. That was a penalty shot for sure.

SterioDesign, I feel bad for you. Habs fans could be really annoying, I can't even imagine.

 

However, I'd love for the Habs to knock out Boston, then knock out Pittsburgh (or New York), and then get knocked out by Anaheim (if possible) haha

Sounds like Kreider will be a go for the Rags tonight. That can only help them, unfortunately.

What are some other 'stupid sh!t" he has done not to like the guy. I actually thought it wasn't the best move, but under certain situations it could be considered a savy move. On the play, I was thinking he could easily get to the puck first and just hold it behind the net or fire it around the boards.

 

Either way, not sure why that play would make you not like the guy.

I was talking hockey with some co-workers, and I just want to say that only a Ranger fan would come up with the sentence "The NHL wants Pittsburgh to beat the Rangers. They want Pittsburgh and Crosby and Malkin in the finals. That's why they scheduled those back-to-backs."

That sounds stupid, but every fan base says similar sh!t. All of them, regardless how conceivable or inconceivable it sounds. Firstly, I have read hundreds of posts here about the league having it out for the Devils in terms of punishments/suspensions reffing or goal calls. Secondly, I have heard everything from Habs/Leafs fans calling conspiracy because they think the NHL wants American teams to do well...to any team playing the Penguins saying the league wants Crosby and co to advance...to Penguins fans complaining that the league is against them for a multiple of reasons. 

 

I mean yes that comment makes no sense on a number of levels, but for every dumb Rangers fan comment we can go to the Devils FB page and find something just as dumb.
