the only positive I can take from these playoffs is that the Rags didnt knock us out to get there, like in '94...that was the worst

Rags also lost their first round pick by getting to the eastern conference finals.

Small, but it'll make it sweeter if they lose in the SCF

They don't have a first rounder for the next two years by virtue of the St. Louis deal. They traded next years out right, and they lose this years by virtue of getting to the conference finals.

I believe they gave up their 2015 1st and this year's 2nd which became a 1st when they made it to the ECF. And that was in the St. Louis/Callahan deal.

If they don't win it this year (and I still contend they won't) they wont win it for a long long time. That's not to say they won't be a decent playoff caliber team next year...they will. But not cup worthy. And after that the long descent will begins as Lundqvist ages.

 

Best case scenario is that we will look back on the 2012-2014 team the same way we would've looked back on the 1992-1994 team had they never won a cup.

Great...the Rags have gotten every break possible (matchup wise) so far this playoffs...they play a Flyers team that they always beat, a Pens team as physical as a ballet class full of 8 year olds and with the mental toughness to match, and now this.  They should be well rested and fully healthy by the time they meet whoever comes out of the West. 

 

It doesn't matter, you get in the dance you have a chance.  

 

Reminds me of the Devils only a few years ago.   The planet aligned and miracles happened (Sal leading Defensemen in scoring?) to get them to the finals.

 

I am actually cheering for the Rags this series, but I think either LA or CHI would destroy them in the finals

Hopefully they'll choke in the finals, and next year they'll have some injuries (or bad luck) and start the downward spiral for another 20 years!

(I mean they hardly had injuries this year, and their older players are still playing well...something has got to go against them sooner or later)

They seriously need to give their training and medical staff full shares if they win.

Yeah gimme a break with that sh!t, there is absolutely, positively NO reason you should be cheering for those jerk-offs Manta. Don't call yourself a Devils fan and then spew that garbage. That's bullsh!t.

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.

Can't fathom how a Devils fan in/from Jersey can root for the Rags in any series.  Ever.

 

I can excuse SD, living in Habs territory and all.  I just wish he wouldn't come on here and talk about it - though he's been much better as of late, I'll give credit when credit is due.

Rangers don't have the kind of elite talent that can match the Hawks nor the depth either the Hawks or Kings have.

St Louis and Nash has shown some signs of life but Richards has been invisible and most of the other forwards have been very up and down in certain aspects.

I dont know, we've been saying stuff like this for a month now and they're still winning games

every team has its strengths and weaknesses ...the rags are getting contributions from different players every game, and the queen has stopped everything thrown at him

Can't you people get over the fact that the Rags are a better team than our Devils? Suck it up and shut up!
Otherwise just watch hockey for the last few weeks you'll get till October.
