Seems like another self important Rangers stunt

The hockey world has already anointed them. And it's going to be hilarious when they fall flat on their faces this year. The Devils have gotten no respect again...almost as if we weren't even in the finals last year. The Rags were so god damn close to being knocked out by Ottawa and Washington.

I also want to know why they've gotten no gruff for dancing around and throwing confetti and shooting off fireworks at inappropriate times(ahem, game 1 win against the Sens? wtf?), or yammering on about some perceived "tradition" as if they're the Habs.

I mean they even have "1993-1994 Regular Season Champions" banners hanging alongside 93-94 Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference Champions. Banners. You already have a 1994 Cup banner. The fvck do you need an Eastern Conference AND Presidents Trophy type banner? Isn't this all redundant...wouldn't 1 banner be enough?

No...we're the Rangers. Don't you know we have tradition. Pack those raftersPosted Image


I do believe the Devils have their Eastern Conference banners up for all 5 years they won them.

If the Devils ever win the President's Trophy they would probably put that up too.

I went to a game last season - they have 3 intro videos before the game

• Welcome to NY
• Welcome to the self-proclaimed most famous and greatest arena on Earth
• Rangers intro, I sh!t you not, consisting of 50% highlights from 1994

Thank GOD the Devils don't market themselves solely on the basis of past success.. Lou may be a hard ass but he gets it right when his one focus is the current team and season, not individual players or past success.. Doing it in the playoffs is fine, but the regular season is about the current season and players

Maybe they'll launch streamers every time someone scores on a two on one drill.


I don't even need to read the rest of this...you just won this thread.

I'm guessing Messier takes a lap with the cup after practice.


And then there's this too...LOL

Ugh.. as much as I hate the Rangers, I will watch this just because I love the behind the scenes thing (Hard Knocks, Oil Change, 24/7, etc). I wish the Devils would do something like this - or better yet, have an occasional open practice.

That organization is a disgrace. Nothing but a propaganda machine of loserdom. The sad thing is, like we were discussing the other day, that the majority of their fans (especially the younger ones) eat it up with a fork and spoon. If you polled 10 Ranger fans, I'd seriously wonder if 9 would be able to tell you the Rangers have won exactly one (1) Cup in 73 years. If you told them that's actually the case, they'd probably deny it.

Haha I can believe it.. Half might even think they win the Cup every summer when that stupid rerun is played to death

MSG. The world's most famous giant urinal.

Hope you guys all enjoyed the run to the finals, because the NY area has already crowned the Rangers the 2012-13 Off-season Champs.

Yeah maybe we should take a look at the rafters in the Pru center and see the same thing. The only time I think it gets silly is in Detroit they have a President's trophy banner and one for most points in the conference they don't need banner padding.

Funny because NY doesnt give two sh!ts about them...MSG is one crappy arena....and 1994 was a loonnnggg time ago.

I'd love for the Devils to be much better with marketing and fan relations, but THANK GOD i am not a Rags fan

Half of the banners in the picture are divisional champion pictures, which the Devils don't have. So to say the Devils do the same thing as that picture is ignoring half the picture.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

The Devils have a banner for every division title they've won. There's nothing wrong with hanging conference and division banners at all, all teams do it. What we were making fun of is the 'Regular Season Champions' banner. That's fvcking lame as sh!t, and just another reason to make fun of the Rangers.

I don't know how I blanked on the whole other side of the arena, I was just thinking of the side with the Cup Banners.

I don't think there is anything wrong with President Trophy Banners. It may be the best indicator of who the best team was.

Why would a division champion for the regular season be ok and the champion of the whole league be bad?

Yeah, you make a worthy point. If I was going to hang a Presidents Trophy banner though, it would say 'President's Trophy Winners' and the year. 'Regular Season Champions' sounds dumb.

I'm with you on that. Presidents Trophy is the way to go. I would guess it says Regular Season so the corporate suits pretending to know hockey understand what the banner means.

Figured I'd throw this in here cause it doesn't warrant it's own thread but I was at the new MSG for 2 different events over the past few months and it's a lot nicer setup then the one before it. View wise it's nice that those damn rings where anyone could walk in front of you are now gone. It's almost like the old meadowlands when it comes to the setup, its got the lower level, then a row of clubs then the upper level. It's a big improvement and should be a lot better to watch a game at.
