I'm going on Saturday.  Please don't let it be more than 25% Rags fans.  I fully expect us to light up Queenie so we can hear the song several times.

I think Devil fans will show up just to boo the goal song.  If it wasn't for that it'd probably be 50-50 or worse.

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

It hasn't been close to 60/40 in years.  It's at most 20% Rags fans these days.

Learning to carry yourself in a public place in a proper manner. The problem is you get fools who think buying a ticket gives them the right to turn the arena into their own personal living room. Then they boycott the team when their hands are slapped like a bunch of spoiled brats. 

Yes, but that's going to happen no matter what. I went to a college night game last year, we were playing Carolina and lost. Some drunk idiot was yelling at the one Carolina fan in our section all night. You suck this, you suck that. It was non-stop swearing and dick jokes. It sucked and after a while I got up and told him to shut the fvck up about his dick because there were kids near by, but then his drunk gf started yelling.

My point is, it happens, it's unavoidable when you have alcohol and young people. As I left the game, I said to the guy, "look man, I'm just trying to watch the game and I don't need commentary all night". I think he got the point, it didn't start a fight, I didn't call him names. Maybe he'll not be an a$$hole next time, maybe he will. Either way, this type of thing isn't going to be prevented by changing the goal song, so what's the point?

Did you go to security or arena staff and report them? If not, why? Even though he might have been cool about it, what if he threw a punch at you? Trying to confront drunks is a coin toss on what you'll get back as a reaction. 

 

Yes, it's unavoidable. They're drunk when they come in the building even. Speaking in relative terms, it's a social issue within society. The way to curb it somewhat is be vigilant of those around you and go to security/arena staff. Obviously, in the case of Carolina night, they probably heard it and saw it but didn't act because no one complained. That laziness isn't a shock with Pru Center security or staff. 

 

Changing the goal song is a message. This fan base has always had a reputation of being a bunch of entitled, selfish spoiled brats and they're earning it now. They buy a ticket and they somehow think it gives them the right to make it their own living room. They're wrong.

I'm not about to go whine to security because someone is using dirty words at a sporting event. Talk about an over-reaction. It was just some drunk dude and his gf, not like it would have been a giant brawl. We were in the cheap seats too. I had a couple buddies with me too, so if it came to that, I would have been fine, not that I was trying to incite a fight.

Rangers fans are dillusional. I saw a comment on some forum (dont know which one, if it was Rangers specific or not), but this Rangers fan was telling people, i think it was from 2012, that it was at least 2/3rds Rangers fans, if not more, and there was significantly more fan noise when the Rangers scored. I think 20% is a generous estimate. Im sure you can count more than 5 Devils fans per Rangers fan. Its certainly a hell of a lot better than any Wings or Hawks road game out west, and Leafs fans seemingly out number Sens fans in Ottawa. Im not sure if there was a single Panthers fan last night down there against the Bruins, that was pretty awful.

The ratio has gotten much better over the past few seasons.  In the playoffs in 2012, they were a very silent minority (10-15% max).  The ticket department did a great job of trying to keep them out.  However, our last meeting vs. them last season there was a large number of blue (30-40%) in our arena.  Not sure if ticket sales policies have changed or not, but it wouldn't surprise me to see a number of Rags fans in the building Sat. night.

Not even close, man. Hasn't been more than 80/20 for years, and even that's being generous (our presale ticketing has been way more on point since 2011, limiting amount of tix that reach Rangers fans). 15-20% of the crowd can still be loud when their team scores with the way arena sound is mic'd and compressed. Rags fans at home watching hear the crowd cheer after a goal and think there's 9,000 Rangers fans there.

 

Yes, I know we're losing, and yes I know the Rangers haven't had a home game yet so our tickets are in demand to them, but hey, this is only our second home game, so I doubt too many people are panicking and selling them, not for a Saturday game against our rivals...

I am thinking that based off the pre-season game agains the Rags it will be about a 60/40 split or close to it.  There was a lot more than usual and I think a good chunk of it has to do with the Garden still has yet had a game there because of the renovations.  This is as close to a home game they are going to get for the next 2 more weeks and with prices generally cheaper at the Rock than the garden, the rags fans will be buying up seats left and right.

60/40 is absurd. You cant say close to half the building is going to be in a Rangers jersey. Whoever goes, take a note.

Even at our worst, it was never 60/40. And definitely not even close to that recently. Preseason there were a lot, and even that was MAYBE 70/30, and that's stretching it. It's psychological. I know I see a bunch of them and think, "Damn there's a lot of them here," but on an arena-wide scale, including the uppers which you don't see on TV, they are not 40% of the crowd, although they love to say they are.

Spoiler:

Apparently it's going to be Seven Nation Army. Not sure if it's going to be played tonight but according to my rep who called me back just five minutes ago that is one of the three songs.
