It wasn't just Francesa, Boomer, Benigno and WFAN today. Even ESPN Radio New York was talking Rangers hockey a lot this afternoon. The afternoon host had on Linda Cohn from ESPN as a guest. She's a HUGE, ANNOYING Rangers fan. And the host (I wish I could remember his name) even pulled out the old argument that Devils and Islanders fans should be happy the Rangers are doing well because it brings hockey up to the forefront of local sports talk.

 

I would never ever ever dare tell people here that you should be happy for the Rangers being in the Cup Finals because it be good for the game, BUT it would be huge for the NHL for all the reasons that everyone here would just cringe.

 

This includes leading SportsCentre, PTI, SI covers, ESPN front pages, Lundqvist, Lundqvist, and more Lundqvist everywhere. People that have no business talking about the NHL in any coherent manner will be talking about hockey in a non-coherent manner.

 

It's just the fascination of NEW YORK CITY in the sports world. People eat that sh!t up. And it will be good for the NHL, and everyone here will fvcking hate it.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

ESPN Radio broadcasts the Rangers, of course they're going to talk about them.  But Linda Cohn as a guest, really?  That's the ultimate cronyism :lol:

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

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

I agree with you guys. The Habs are getting their sh!t pushed in tonight.

It's too much of a perfect storm for the rags tonight

I just want to fast forward to game 1 of the finals already. Them celebrating will make me sick

I wanna fast forward to the last game of the Finals where they lose and this whole nightmare is over.

Of course that host isn't a Devils or Islanders fan I'm sure...

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

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.

#30 FOREVER!

He's awful. Can't even pretty pretend he tries to hide his bias.

Rangers dominate 80% of the first period, get every break and whistle and have nothing to show for it. Montreal has a power play on clean ice to start the 2nd. If I'm a Rags fan I'm pooping bricks right now.

Seriously with Olczyk. He doesn't even try to hide it. I feel like I'm watching an MSG broadcast.
