If their fans are still brining up 94 any chance they can get and thats 20 years ago I think you would probably need to stay longer than until October.

 

Tell me about it.  My brother was talking with a friend of his who's a Ranger fan who said winning the Cup this year would be an even bigger accomplishment than '94.  So get ready for the preparations for the number retirements for Kreider, Zuccarrello, St. Louis, McDonough and Kevin Klein.

Which one will involve the most tears you think?

If they win I'm moving to Central America and becoming a coffee farmer until October.

I love coffee. I'll work your farm with you.

Eh, the Western Conference is so much stronger - the Rangers would be a significant dog in the Cup Finals.  Montreal has to pull out a game or two here to keep the Rangers from being able to rest while the West beats up on one another though.  Still, obviously the Rangers have more Cup equity than any other team right now - we'll see how that goes.  Sure looked like the Flyers could pull it off in 2010 but Chicago kept them out.

Yea Flyers are a good comparison, and they got there with stinking Leighton/Boucher or whatever trash they had in net. Beat Boston after being down 3-0 on top of it all.

 

Montreal has pride and enough talent, and Lundqvist will have his off game or two to make this a longer. If the Rags go into the Finals having already played 19-20 playoff games it's going to be very tough to win.

I went to the cell phone store, and I was there over an hour.  My husband couldn't understand what was taking so long until I got home and told him that once I gave our email address (very Devils), I was treated to a 15 minute lecture about how the king is as good as Marty now, and that if they win the cup this year he will be the best of all time.  It's pointless to argue with that kind of stupidity, so I just stood there and stared at him with that kill me now look on my face.  He even came around the counter and showed me his Ranger tattoo.  Seriously...who gives a sh!t!

I probably would've been laughing too hard at him to get mad.

Well, it was funny to see his face when I said really..the best?  You are going to pass him over Roy too??  And he started to blubber a bit and then went on with his claims.  :)

And they haven't even made it to the Finals yet. And this is why they don't deserve to- most of them are too stupid to know how to handle prosperity.

I'm fairly confident they'll be beaten by the Kings/Hawks...but just having them in the final is too far for comfort.

Unless someone decides to run Crawford / Quick.  Then who the hell knows, right?

Good on you for not taking the bait.  I'd like to say I would've done the same.. but I don't think I'm as cool-headed as you are unfortunately

Well then how about running Lundqvist? What's good for the goose is good for the gander. If the Rags' resort to running goalies as a strategy, then you take out theirs, or keep running him until you do. That's how it works. Two-way street.

Oh I totally agree.  But the Habs are composed of weak players, both mentally and physically (outside of Prust, who apparently is all bark and no bite) so I'm not expecting much.  Hell if I were Therrien I would've told my players to crash the net after every. single. play.  'Flyer' that sh!t up, if you're going to get embarrassed twice in your own building at least stand up for yourselves.  Ridiculous that they're going back to NY down 0-2 without having at least asserted themselves a bit in the series.

 

The Hawks got nasty against the Blues..maybe they'd start that sh!t up again with the Rangers should that matchup occur.

The Habs are a bunch of p*ssies- everyone knows it. The Rags players know it, the coaches know it- hell the Habs fans even know it, though they probably wouldn't admit it. The Habs won't do sh!t. They had a chance to set a new tone in the series last night, and they sh!t all over themselves like the p*ssies they are. They barely made contact with a Ranger all night. I think we know what will happen over the next 3 games. Now if Blades Kreider over there wants to try running Quick or Crawford in the next round, then he and the Queen will pay for it dearly. Those teams aren't soft, nor will they take sh!t from a soft-ass, panty-waist team like the Rangers.

Yeah, remember when Sean Avery covered Brodeur's eyes?  The Devils made sure to hit him at every opportunity.  And they lost the series in 5 games including a critical goal scored while someone was out of position hitting Sean Avery.  Gimme a fvcking break, the Habs outplayed the Rangers last night, they just got zero bounces and their goalie sucked at a critical opportunity.

Yeah that's why the Devils lost that series- they weren't a cluster-fvck against the Rangers all year or anything that year. They lost because they were fixated on Avery.

It certainly didn't help.  But yeah running goalies and taking interference penalties seems like a good way to come back in a series.  Certainly beats doing things like getting shots on goal and scoring chances.

Except I'd argue that series was largely lost because the Rangers owned the Devils that year - they beat the devils, what, 6 or 7 times in the regular season?  I don't think the Devils were winning that series one way or the other.

 

I don't think the Rangers and Habs are that far off with a healthy Price..I mean, they got embarrassed in game 1 but I would think they would've made a series out of it.
