Its not much fun when the younger bother really kicks the sh*t out of the older one. You at least want them to fight back a little right?


I suppose ... but there's a special place in my heart for the 23-game unbeaten streak in the late 1990s to early 2000s. Good times.

that was incredible - i remember going to many of those games, both in NJ and NY and everyone in the building knew it - it was as thick as honey that unbeaten streak.

the rangers always like to fancy themselves the yankees of the NHL.

i think the Mets is more appropriate (sorry Has).

First things first: anyone who thinks Tri is being literal with his initial post here is missing his point. He's trying to show that Devils fans are overly obsessed with the Rangers and their shortcomings, and he's sarcastically taking the "if ya can't beat 'em, join 'em" approach. I really haven't seen that much Ranger stuff on here this year, and even the overwrought "Rangers suck!" chant is dying down at the Rock, so I don't think that obsession is as strong as it's been in seasons past.

The difference being is that the Yankees are indeed successful in buying championships. I don't think they've won one without purchasing it.

The Rangers, try as they might, fail in this endeavor.

I skimmed through a Rangers bloggers recap of yesterdays game and chuckled when I got to the bottom:

Labels: buffalo sabres, disappointing, disgrace, disgusting, fire tortorella, New York Rangers


anyway he opened with this

I heard "Let's Go Mets!" twice walking out of the Garden tonight and "at least we have the Mets" once.

When you are a New York sports fan and you are looking forward to Mets baseball, then there is something seriously, seriously wrong. And there are many things seriously, seriously wrong with the New York Rangers right now.

It's funny reading some Rangers board these days. Seeing them going from "OMG we has Gaborikx we're winning teh Cupzz!!!1oneone" to "We should just tank and get a higher draft pick" mode is just priceless. :evil:

Their fans sure say boo, usually at every home game.

I always did think his legend was just a bit overblown. The Rangers did have to go out and make a bunch of costly trades and recruit a whole lot of ex-Oilers to win that Cup. At least the Devils built their own identity in winning theirs. They didn't have to go out and borrow someone else's.

Let's not forget his guarantees that he would bring the Canucks to the playoffs, and that he would bring the Rangers back to the playoffs when he returned to New York! Nobody ever mentions those guarantees. Nobody ever mentions that he demanded to wear 11 in Vancouver even though the number was unofficially retired for a player who passed away.

gaborik played over 26 minutes in the first game of a home and home.

hey tortorella, you can yell and scream and curse all you want and talk about lack of effort but then you go ahead and reward the lack of effort with more ice time. He basically ran 6 forwards all night.
hilarious disaster indeed.

LOL REDDEN. The disaster that is Redden is even more delicious than we imagined it would be when he got signed.

I honestly expected the Rangers to do BETTER than last year, but wtf was I thinking lol. It's double fun in my house again, I only enjoy watching Rangers games when they lose. I need to get Lundqvist off my fantasy team.

It's too bad the Rags keep playing on Devils game days.
