is that supposed to be serious or is it supposed to be a parody of the rangers fanbase? I honestly can't tell because it's so ridiculous.

I was wondering the same thing.

Like most of these Twitter and Facebook pages, it's probably run by some 14-19 year old, and the likelihood of him being alive for their last Stanley Cup is almost 98% unlikely.

I'm still trying to figure out how the Rags are so much better than the Devils.  What about their roster makes them better?

Thanks for sharing this me and my penguin friend will have a laugh reading these after rangers losses. That facebook page is a gem of ridiculousness and confirmation bias. There is a huge amount of hate on their as well, people saying they hope terrorists blow up the rock with the team inside. Just crazy stuff.

 

They've lost 3 games to us out of 3 and they all still talk sh!t. The best is they say we got 6 overtime bullsh!t points, I'm fairly certain if there was no shootout we would have more Wins and less overtime losses.

 

Also the droves of players that believe they have more cups than us. Because winning cups 80 years ago with 6 teams in the league is an accomplishment.

I know we hate it when we lose to the Rags. But when the Rags lose to us, they go absolutely ape sh!t.

Obviously Brodeur created that 1st goal, but I am not buying this at all.  It's been 30 games split between two guys.  Skill would have no way of trumping pure chance.

 

I'm not talking about him creating offense as much as I'm talking about him disrupting the other team's offense.   For example the Kings game, I think if Marty plays, they probably don't win.   But if he does play, I don't think they look nearly as bad as they looked.   For a team that passes as poorly as we do, getting hemmed up is a death sentence

Once a dumb fanbase, always a dumb fanbase...you can also add "most predictable" to their many negative traits.

Please, Rangers have racked up more than their fair share of "bullsh!t" SO points over the years (as have the Devils)...what makes that even funnier is that infamous Ranger brown-noser Al Twatwig will make it sound like the Rangers are purposely playing for shootouts whenever they start accumulating wins that way.  The rules are what they are...if the Rangers had gone 12-13-6 instead of 15-15-1, you wouldn't hear a peep from them about OT BS points.  Just like if they had won the Cup in '95, you'd never hear anything about "1/2 Cup" from them.  And like someone said on here a while back (I forget who)...Ranger fans (especially the males) even kind of look alike...very Neanderthal.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I think my favorite Ranger fan ever was this woman that called up I believe Evan and Joe that claimed there was a league conspiracy to have Ottawa beat the Rangers in the 2011-2012 playoffs as evidenced by the refs. When told that there would be nothing the league would want more than to have a big market team like the Rangers go as far as possible, she responds, "well maybe Bettman owes a favor to those Canadian teams."

I told this story a while back, but the day after the Devils won the Cup in '95, I woke up and went to a bagel shop down the street (this was in Clifton) and the guy working behind the counter clearly had an abundance of body hair, body fat, and unrivaled stupidity.  I still had my jersey on, and right away with that awesome Noo Yawk accent, Bagel God said something along the lines of "O yeah, now all yous guys cum outta da wood-werk."  I told him I'd been a Devils fan since '84, then he put forth the theory that the series was definitely fixed (and was deadly serious about it).  I said something about it how must be a wonderful luxury to have so much time to ponder such travesties while juggling the art of perfecting bagel fabrication.  Not much happened after that...thankfully he had to toast and butter my bagels in full view, so he couldn't add any special secret sauces...but suffice it to say I never went into that store again, which was kind of too bad...they did make some tasty bagels.

For teams able to carry the puck into the zone, Brodeur does exactly nothing to help in the defensive zone.

But no matter how good your team is at carrying the puck into the zone, they don't and can't do it all the time.

I'm still trying to figure out how the Rags are so much better than the Devils.  What about their roster makes them better?

 

Nothing... On paper, maybe their team 2 years ago was better than ours, it might have been the deepest Rangers team in a decade or two. But Sather traded half that team away.

 

This year's Rangers are NOT a good team, by any stretch of the imagination. When you look at the losses they've compiled, they let in 3-4 goals, they've lost 9-2, they've lost 7-0, they just lost 4-1 yesterday. They're the most inconsistent team in the league and I think they're due for a bad run soon.

 

If I had to pick one, I'd rather be in the situation the Devils are in, where we're keeping games extremely tight, losing games in the shootout, losing games by 1 goal at worst. 9 times out of 10, DeBoer has been able to keep the compete level extremely high, outside of a few games here and there. We're beating teams like the Penguins, the Bruins, the Ducks, Kings; we're winning in adverse conditions, winning in OT situations, and would be in a much better position right now if we didn't have 3 of the most unlucky weeks to start the season off. Let's face it, we were unlucky; the level of play was there game-in and game-out and we'd be in 2nd place in our division with one or two more positive results during that month or two of bad luck.

The Devils and the Rangers are pretty even I would say.  The Rangers were playing without Nash for a couple of weeks, remember.

 

The Rangers will always go as far as their goaltending will take them.  Lunqvist has had a fairly down year so far, but you would expect him to reverse things if he isn't starting to already.  I think the Devils and Rangers will be neck and neck until the end of the season.

I know we hate it when we lose to the Rags. But when the Rags lose to us, they go absolutely ape sh!t.

I'm not defending Rags fans, because they're a special level of obnoxiously stupid, but their broadcasters make them stupider. Apparently, Rosen claimed Cam's goal should have been disallowed. Anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of the rules of hockey knows that wasn't a distinct kicking motion. If I'd grown up listening to the moron homers who call Rags games, I might not understand hockey either. I know Chico can be a homer (and no goalie has ever been at fault in his mind), but our broadcasters to a pretty good job explaining what happened, even if it doesn't favor the Devils.

What I want to know is what is Rosen smoking to think Cam could handle kicking the puck while stopping like that? And can I have some?

To be fair, I thought it be waived off and that's because I've learned that whatever you think it'll be, the replay offices will do the opposite. For every goal with a possible kicking motion you've seen reviewed and called a goal, you've also seen it be reviewed and called no goal. 

 

I think they showed replays from different games to show pretty much identical plays  being called different things. And that was actually the first reviewed kicking goal that went the Devils way. If the ref waived it off, there is a good chance it would have stayed that way.

Personally, I've felt as if they've gotten a lot more consistent with it. I was just saying that I don't think Cam could try to kick the puck while stopping without flopping over, lol.

I remember an epic Parise goal vs. Islanders (with like 10 seconds left to a game we were down) similar to this being waived off.

 

But inversely, I've definitely seen way more examples of it being called a good goal. The Parise no-goal call was more of a fluke than this being called a good one.
