You don't hate Lundqvist? He's like the biggest pompous a$$hole. hitting ice girls, the smug male model stuff. How about St. Louis being a prick and crying his way to the Rags.

 

Not sure the exact reasons why St Louis left Tampa and had to go to the Rangers, but, yes, I guess I did lose some respect for him. I think most people held him in very high regard before that. His family tragedy has made me forget the trade.

 

I am a fan of Lundqvist. Why should I care that he's good looking and gets opportunities to do things many good looking athletes have done in all sports. I think Lundqvist is very hard to hate. I understand why people in NJ want to hate him due to dozens of Rangers fans anointing him 'King Henrik' and saying he is better than Brodeur. It's frustrating, but once you separate that it really has nothing to do with Lundqvist himself..whatever. And because of those annoying fans and who he plays for, rooting for him to fail and blow in the playoffs...sure, but that has nothing to do with having to hate him.

 

He always handles himself well, and made it a non issue when Brodeur has commented about him over the years. If you are annoyed by Rangers fans and the media, you better shut it all out if the Rangers do win the Cup. Lundqvist will be marketed heavily and become the face of the NHL.

A more simple question would have been, "why do you hate the Habs more than the Rangers?"

A more simple explanation would have been, "I live near Montreal and hate the Habs more."

As a puckstopper I will admit Lundqvist is better than Brodeur (maybe better than Brodeur has ever been) I guess for me it goes back to Lundqvists whining and standoffishness. I mean I hate it when Brodeur whines...but lundqvists sad sack "Oh my god, the fact that they counted that goal...just scary" little tantrum after some controversial goal on him in Ottawa really bothered me. The massive pads bother me as well.

 

And no I don't like Brodeur sniping at Lundqvist either. It's unnecessary.

Actually some Devils fans don't hate the Rangers as much as other teams. There's no requirement to march in lockstep.

One thing I've noticed: the fans that don't hate the Rags as much as the rest of us like DR and SD, don't live in the area... Trust me guys- if you lived in the NJ/NY metro area, we wouldn't be having this discussion. You'd hate them just as much as everyone else here does.

of course cause thats what creates a rivalry. When fans goes at it too and are mixing with each other.

 

Im 100% certain i'd hate the rangers a lot more if id like in the NY/NJ area lol and im sure you'd hate the Habs a lot more if you live up here haha

I don't doubt I'd dislike the Habs more if I lived there- I don't really like them all that much now lol. But the hatred for the Rangers that we Devils fans from NJ have is the type of intense hatred born from a number of different factors that out-of-town fans may not fully relate to... Having them 10 miles away, growing up going to school and having to work with Rags fans, Rags fans from NJ who choose to root for a NY team, the media, their fans in our building, etc... Its a special kind of hatred between the fan bases and the teams. Its the kind of hate that's unique because of the geography and all these other factors. So you have to understand SD- cheering for the Rags on this board, no matter how much you hate the Habs, isn't something that's gonna be received very well, but I'm sure you know that already anyway lol.

Unless someone finds a way to get Lundqvist off his game, they're going to win the cup.


Is this a reverse jinx? They will get dismantled by either the Kings or Hawks. Not sure anyone in the East has/had a chance to bring it home this year. The Cali teams and Chicago are playing the game at a much higher level. I can't see the Finals going past 5 games.

I hope you're right. Anything can happen though... Which is somewhat terrifying.

I really don't get why anyone is upset that SD hates the Habs more than the Rangers. It's definitely all due to geography. He doesn't have to deal with all the Rangers fans and their bullsh!t like us in the NJ/NY area have to and that's really what makes us hate them so much. If he lived near us all he'd hate them just as much as we all do, but he doesn't so who cares?
