Im 100% certain i'd hate the rangers a lot more if id like in the NY/NJ area lol and im sure you'd hate the Habs a lot more if you live up here haha

I don't doubt I'd dislike the Habs more if I lived there- I don't really like them all that much now lol. But the hatred for the Rangers that we Devils fans from NJ have is the type of intense hatred born from a number of different factors that out-of-town fans may not fully relate to... Having them 10 miles away, growing up going to school and having to work with Rags fans, Rags fans from NJ who choose to root for a NY team, the media, their fans in our building, etc... Its a special kind of hatred between the fan bases and the teams. Its the kind of hate that's unique because of the geography and all these other factors. So you have to understand SD- cheering for the Rags on this board, no matter how much you hate the Habs, isn't something that's gonna be received very well, but I'm sure you know that already anyway lol.

Unless someone finds a way to get Lundqvist off his game, they're going to win the cup.

Is this a reverse jinx? They will get dismantled by either the Kings or Hawks. Not sure anyone in the East has/had a chance to bring it home this year. The Cali teams and Chicago are playing the game at a much higher level. I can't see the Finals going past 5 games.

I hope you're right. Anything can happen though... Which is somewhat terrifying.

I really don't get why anyone is upset that SD hates the Habs more than the Rangers. It's definitely all due to geography. He doesn't have to deal with all the Rangers fans and their bullsh!t like us in the NJ/NY area have to and that's really what makes us hate them so much. If he lived near us all he'd hate them just as much as we all do, but he doesn't so who cares?

Carey Price and his mediocre goaltending won't shield him from the 20+ posts and dozens of open nets that the Bruins missed.   Rags in 5

I'm starting to see a bunch of awful blue clothing pop up in my town. I can't stand this. I go to a family party and people who have never even watched the game of hockey are bringing up that team to me. This is a nightmare.

I can't stand bandwagon jumpers. They're not real sports fans. They're people who feel the need to latch on to something to make them feel cool, and whenever a team goes on a run, these idiots crawl out of the woodwork. If you don't have a true allegiance to the Rags, just shut your face and don't talk sh!t to me about sh!t- you 'aint a real fan. I don't ever give people like that the satisfaction.

As a Rangers fan, these people bother me just as much, if not more. If you haven't been through the years and years of Rangers futility, YOU HAVEN'T EARNED ANYTHING. :) 

I tell myself the bandwagon jumpers can't enjoy this as much as I can, because I lived through the Dark Days of Quintal, and Gusarov, and Brendl, and Muckler, and Pilon...and God, there are too many to list...

This is the type of thing bandwagon jumpers don't understand. These types of people are casual fans at best who don't get it. They don't get what it means to live and die and suffer with a team for years and years. They jump on the bandwagon, and once the run ends, they go back to not caring/watching. Like I said, these people are not real sports fans. Most of them don't get it, and never will. But they'll always be the first a$$hole in line to say 'HEY BRO DEVILS SUCK, LET'S GO RANGERS!!!!' I truly despise these types of 'fans'.

Brandon Prust said Kreider "accidentally on purpose" ran into Price skates first and did nothing to try to avoid him.

Like I said- they need to run Lundqvist. Plain and simple. I hope Prust puts him through the boards tomorrow.

But surely you realize how a Rangers deep playoff run/cup can hurt the growth of our fanbase, not to mention nauseate the existing fan base. That alone should want you rooting for the rags to lose.

Being placed smack dab in the middle of three other well established teams didn't give us too much chance for a fan base to begin with.

Bettman is creaming his jeans over LA v. NYR

 

I'm pretty sure this board would commit mass suicide if that was the matchup.  It's making me sick to my stomach just thinking about it.
