Maybe I hear it more bc I live on LI, but so many dumb ranger fans are acting like they won the cup already, meanwhile they're only 1/2 way there.
I really hope they aren't playing in june but if they are hopefully they don't win it all. If they do win it all, it would be there first cup with all 30 NHL teams.
1994 only had 20 something teams
and for the first 2 only had 6 teams
Let a fanbase be pumped for coming back from 3-1 and making the ECF. It's fvcking really hard to do and a great accomplishment. Only 1 team gets to win the Cup, but if you can't enjoy winning a series as a fan, well then that's unfortunate and not the right way to look at it. A lot of Devils fans were acting like they won their Stanley Cup in 2012 after beating the Rangers.
There were 26 teams in 1994. Only 4 more teams 20 years later. 16 teams still make the playoffs, so it's still just as tough for whoever ends up winning.
