I was talking hockey with some co-workers, and I just want to say that only a Ranger fan would come up with the sentence "The NHL wants Pittsburgh to beat the Rangers. They want Pittsburgh and Crosby and Malkin in the finals. That's why they scheduled those back-to-backs."

 

That sounds stupid, but every fan base says similar sh!t. All of them, regardless how conceivable or inconceivable it sounds. Firstly, I have read hundreds of posts here about the league having it out for the Devils in terms of punishments/suspensions reffing or goal calls. Secondly, I have heard everything from Habs/Leafs fans calling conspiracy because they think the NHL wants American teams to do well...to any team playing the Penguins saying the league wants Crosby and co to advance...to Penguins fans complaining that the league is against them for a multiple of reasons. 

 

I mean yes that comment makes no sense on a number of levels, but for every dumb Rangers fan comment we can go to the Devils FB page and find something just as dumb.

"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.

I thought Brooks referenced something in the last day or two that the Garden availability was partly to blame for the tight scheduling.  But I went to MSG's website and couldn't find a 'master' schedule of events. Whatever, whatever.  It is funny though the Ana/LA series gets a two day break though.  I hate 2 day breaks, everybody s/b playing every other night. Then it's even for all.  If you came off of a short or shorter series, then you earned the rest.

While the above is true, I like to think that Devils conspiracy theorists at least use logical arguments. "The league goes against the Devils because they are a small market nobody cares about" - I'm not saying that is the case, just that it is a logical argument to use.

When the Rag fans claim a conspiracy, it's ridiculous. Yes, the league WANTS New York to fail, it's only the biggest media market in the country. Absolute garbage.

By the way, the other day a co-worker of mine said to me "Bro, how can you root against the Rangers, we're (NJ and NY) neighbors." I couldn't care less if Pittsburgh won the cup, knock these fools into submission and out of the playoffs as soon as possible.

Rangers fans are braindead. The only thing they're victims of is Dolan/MSG scheduling and the ramifications of going to 7 games with a vastly inferior Flyers team.

 

Although, plenty of fans of most teams say this kinda stuff, even here on NJDevs haha... Although, yes, Penguins are the obvious target as they do have a track record in the media.

I didn't go into detail about Pens fans, but I have read something along the lines of, "of course the NHL wants (so and so team to win), they know Pittsburgh is a set hockey market, but they need (insert small market team) to win and have a good playoff run to stabilize that market."

 

So when you have that logic, you can have a situation where any team's fans thinks the league wants their opponents to win.

My favorite was a Ranger fan that called the Fan a few years back and said the league wanted Ottawa to beat the Rangers and the refs were in on it.
